She resigns in disgrace over the Quota system!

Apparently a Guardian story today finished her, according to politicalbetting.com:-

'The private letter from Amber Rudd to Downing Street in which she sets an “ambitious but deliverable” target for an increase in the enforced deportation of immigrants has been published by the Guardian.

The letter, signed by the home secretary in January last year, states that she is refocusing work within her department to achieve the “aim of increasing the number of enforced removals by more than 10% over the next few years”.

Rudd has claimed she did not set, see or approve any targets for removals. The former immigration minister Brandon Lewis suggested on Sunday this proposed increase was an ambition rather than a target.

But Home Office sources have told the Guardian that it is “shame-faced nonsense” to claim the department had not been set specific targets in this area, or that these have not been regularly discussed at the highest levels.

The latest furore was sparked on Friday when the Guardian published details from a separate confidential memo that was sent to Rudd in June last year.'

They were hinting on the Sunday Politics earlier that she threw some of her staff under the bus and that there might be more leaks on the way....

This nonsense of accepting personal responsibility for failure is dangerous and must be stamped out without delay.

She would not have survived a Commons assault tomorrow and they obviously decided to get it all out of the way tonight. A Home Sec going on the eve of local elections is probably as bad as it gets, and it looks like May's brief period of relative calm is over. She will be lucky if she's not dragged down by it herself over something she signed or saw when she was Home Sec. Amber Rudd certainly won't have any reason to do her any favours.

If she lost her seat during the GE, which she very nearly did, I would have creamed my trousers!
Hopefully she's gone off the national stage for good!
She was a strong advocate of of making life hell on earth for sex worker type legislation in the tradition of Yvette Cooper, Harriet Harperson and our very own Fitzie Fitzie!

Resigned?
Does this mean she can retire to the Caribbean on a gold-plated pension? Nice

There was a policy to increase deportations and cut the immigration no.s. Amber Rudd was aware of the policy but has been diverting attention to her underlings in the Dept and allocating the blame to them.This is in today's Guardian/Observer.She has stuck it out for 10 days but all the leaking against her was bound to drown her. She had to go now or face greater humiliation during the next few days till Maybot would have to fire her.
