Amber Rudd has resigned as Home Secretary, saying she “inadvertently misled” MPs over which policies of her predecessor, Theresa May, she was continuing to follow.
The policies themselves remain unchanged, but the Home Secretary has gone. We interviewed a Black British citizen, currently in a country that didn’t exist when he came to England, to see what he thought.
“I’m delighted for her,” said David Williams. In June 2017, David was deported from the UK, despite having been invited here by the British government to help rebuild the country after the Second World War. “I understand she stepped down to spend more time with her family. If I still had a job, I would resign if it meant I could kiss my wife one last time.”
Spam-faced Pob impersonator Michael Gove agreed, saying “I’m so sad about Amber’s departure from government – she was a huge asset – able to draw fire from the government – brave, principled, thoughtful, humane, considerate and always thinking of the impact of our policies on the vulnerable may have on us – I hope Amber will be back soon – we need her.”
Mr Williams, 78, has not seen his family since he was deported. In his last contact with the Home Office, they said he may be able to secure a passport if he attends the Passport Office in Pimlico.
At the time of writing, the passport-less British citizen has been unsuccessful in booking a flight home.
