Yet more pressure is piling onto Theresa May with the revelation in tonight’s Evening Standard that she personally vetoed visas for Indian doctors desperately needed by the NHS.
Hospital trusts went public last week on the dangers the block – which has prevented the arrival of hundreds of doctors just since last December – has posed to NHS patients.
May has so far clung on during the huge scandal of the abuse of Windrush citizens by throwing now-former Home Secretary Amber Rudd under a bus and by lying to MPs and the nation, but calls for her resignation continued to increase, even before the emergence of this latest outrage.
The exposure of her personal role in knowingly putting the lives of NHS patients at risk by means of another potentially racist block on the immigration of medics must surely prise her desperate fingers from their diminishing hold on the keys to Downing Street.
