Rudd Can’t Say How Many EU Citizens Work in Home Office

Amber Rudd wants to force companies to list foreign workers yet she has no idea how many EU citizens work in her own department. Last month Labour submitted a written question asking the Home Office how many EU nationals it employed. Rudd’s department replied:

“the Home Office does not record the nationality of employees on our IT systems and is unable to provide this information”

Which neatly sums up how badly thought out her policy is.

Rudd is an arch-Remainer who is over-compensating on immigration, coming up with something she thinks will please Leavers but which no sensible Leaver would ever dream of proposing. As UKIP pointed out yesterday, the policy is more ominous than anything they ever called for. This is one of the problems with Remainers being in charge…

Quote of the Day

Andrea Leadsom told BBC Radio 4’s Today

“He’s made his views on Brexit on the record, and the problem with that of course is that the chair’s impartiality is absolutely essential. … He’s made his views known on Brexit… it’s a matter for him but nevertheless it’s a challenge and all colleagues need to form their own view of that.”
