After this scandal and its botched cover up, Amber Rudd’s resignation was inevitable – Abbott
30 Apr 2018Diane Abbott MP, Shadow Home Secretary, responding to Amber Rudd’s resignation, said:
“After this scandal and its botched cover up, Amber Rudd’s resignation was inevitable. It should have come sooner.
“The architect of this crisis, Theresa May, must now step forward to give an immediate, full and honest account of how this inexcusable situation happened on her watch.
“Outstanding questions remain, and a change of Home Secretary must mean a change in the ‘hostile environment’ policies begun by her predecessor, or it will be meaningless.
“The Prime Minister must come before the House of Commons to explain whether she knew that Amber Rudd was misleading Parliament and the public last week about deportation targets.”
