Rudd claims that although she knew, she didn’t know that she knew
There’s been a lot of confusion regarding what Amber Rudd knew about deportation targets. Although by confusion what I actually mean is ‘bullshit’.
Rudd can’t resign before the local elections. As such, she’s been hiding within a labyrinthine web of disprovable falsehoods.
BRITAIN: “Were there targets?”
BRITAIN: “Yes there were: we have them here.”
RUDD: “But I didn’t know about them.”
BRITAIN: “Funny, this memo said you did.”
RUDD: “I didn’t read the memo.”
BRITAIN: “We have a video of you reading the memo and rubbing your hands together.”
RUDD: “I had my eyes closed. And I was rubbing my hands together because I was thinking about whatever it is that makes humans justifiably pleased.”
BRITAIN: “We have a second video in which it’s clear your eyes are open.”
RUDD: “But that wasn’t me. I was cloned.”
BRITAIN: “If you were cloned and your clone works in government, are you not responsible for its actions?”
RUDD: “But it’s an evil clone.”
BRITAIN: “And you’re sure you’re not the evil one?”
BRITAIN: “Okay, so let’s get this evil clone in here.”
BRITAIN: “We’re going to go get this clone and it will just be you, won’t it?”
RUDD: “I… don’t know.”
Still though, according to ‘moderate’ MP John Woodcock, the Labour right have a lot in common with this monster.
Amber Rudd has screwed up big time, no question. And there is now clearly a significant question mark over her competence. But Labour has more common ground with her than so many of her potential successors – we should be careful what we wish for.

We know everyone is suffering under the Tories - but the Canary is a vital weapon in our fight back, and we need your support
The Canary Workers’ Co-op knows life is hard. The Tories are waging a class war against us we’re all having to fight. But like trade unions and community organising, truly independent working-class media is a vital weapon in our armoury.
The Canary doesn’t have the budget of the corporate media. In fact, our income is over 1,000 times less than the Guardian’s. What we do have is a radical agenda that disrupts power and amplifies marginalised communities. But we can only do this with our readers’ support.
So please, help us continue to spread messages of resistance and hope. Even the smallest donation would mean the world to us.
