WASHINGTON POST: British Home Secretary Amber Rudd has resigned, but Theresa May remains under fire amid immigration scandal

Press/Media: Expert comment

Release date: 30/4/2018

Description

The Windrush scandal, said Rob Ford, a professor of politics at the University of Manchester, “highlights that, even with all of the toxic politics we’ve had around immigration in the country for well over a decade, there is a basic kind of gut-level sense of fair treatment and fair play.”

“This is very much a government that built their approach to immigration on the idea that there is no such thing as a policy that is too anti-immigration. And, actually, it turns out there is,” he said.
