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.
