Someone saying to Rudd "Just keep smiling and pretending you're clueless!" Rudd responds: "Yes. Pretending."

There’s been a lot of confusion regarding what Amber Rudd knew about deportation targets. Although by confusion what I actually mean is ‘bullshit’.

Who knows?

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?”

RUDD: “No.”

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?”

RUDD: “Positive.”

BRITAIN: “Okay, so let’s get this evil clone in here.”

RUDD: “Ah.”

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.

We need your help to keep speaking the truth

Every story that you have come to us with; each injustice you have asked us to investigate; every campaign we have fought; each of your unheard voices we amplified; we do this for you. We are making a difference on your behalf.

Our fight is your fight. You’ve supported our collective struggle every time you gave us a like; and every time you shared our work across social media. Now we need you to support us with a monthly donation.

We have published nearly 2,000 articles and over 50 films in 2021. And we want to do this and more in 2022 but we don’t have enough money to go on at this pace. So, if you value our work and want us to continue then please join us and be part of The Canary family.

In return, you get:

* Advert free reading experience
* Quarterly group video call with the Editor-in-Chief
* Behind the scenes monthly e-newsletter
* 20% discount in our shop

Almost all of our spending goes to the people who make The Canary’s content. So your contribution directly supports our writers and enables us to continue to do what we do: speaking truth, powered by you. We have weathered many attempts to shut us down and silence our vital opposition to an increasingly fascist government and right-wing mainstream media.

With your help we can continue:

* Holding political and state power to account
* Advocating for the people the system marginalises
* Being a media outlet that upholds the highest standards
* Campaigning on the issues others won’t
* Putting your lives central to everything we do

We are a drop of truth in an ocean of deceit. But we can’t do this without your support. So please, can you help us continue the fight?
