In 2004 Theresa May said “I find it extraordinary that a Minister isn’t willing just to step up to the plate and take responsibility… I’m actually sick and tired of Government Ministers who simply blame other people when something goes wrong”.

An old clip has surfaced of Theresa May calling for Labour immigration minister Beverley Hughes to resign: she quit Tony Blair’s government in 2004 after a visa scam scandal. May says:
“We’ve made it absolutely clear and I agree, I do think that Beverely should resign as minister on this particular issue… she blamed officials in her department for this decision being taken, I find it extraordinary that a minister isn’t willing just to step up to the plate and take the responsibility.”
After a dire month for Labour on anti-semitism, Russia and Syria, the Tories somehow manage to shoot themselves in the foot with Windrush…
