Amber Rudd No Platformed By Oxford Students

Oxford’s ‘UNWomen’ society no-platformed Amber Rudd last night, cancelling her invitation to speak at the last minute. This abrupt turnaround came as the ‘non-partisan‘ society caved to complaints from a mob of far-left students.

“Following a majority vote in committee, tonight’s event with speaker Amber Rudd has been cancelled. We are deeply sorry for all and any hurt caused to our members and other wom*n and non-binary people in Oxford over this event.”

Complaints that followed the initial publication of the event prompted the society to open a consultation where students could submit feedback over the decision to invite the former independent Member of Parliament who quit the Government over Brexit last year.

“The concerns we see happening now around this event are absolutely ones which we as a committee feel ourselves. We invited Ms Rudd on the understanding that this would be an honest and frank conversation about how her policies have impacted wom*n of all races, religions, classes et cetera.

We will not run away from mentioning any of Ms Rudd’s past comments or policies, and we ask you to attend this event to help us campaign for a truly frank feminism which is not afraid of taking such opportunities to discuss these issues with high profile figures.”

While the society initially felt like the event would offer a good chance to debate and even criticise one of the most high profile female politicians in the country, respondents clearly disagreed. The centrist politician was just too much for some Oxford students to take…

Rudd is, of course, on police files as the perpetrator of a “non-crime hate incident”, after an Oxford University Professor Joshua Silver reported the then-Home Secretary’s 2016 Conservative Party Conference speech to the West Midlands Police. Not that any due process was needed to add the incident to official statistics…

UPDATE: Oxford University condemns the UNWomen society for no-platforming Rudd

Responding to a Tweet by her daughter Flora wondering how many pregnancy tests the average woman has taken, the former-Home Secretary replied:

Please be careful. Believe me nothing ruins your life more than an unplanned pregnancy.”

Rudd Shows Off her Lady Hale Merch

Amber Rudd and her daughter Flora have come out as the latest members of the (totally neutral and objective in her rulings) Supreme Court judge Baroness Hale fan club; rocking t-shirts featuring a replica of Hale’s infamous spider broach on the House of Commons terrace. In the eyes of the Tory Party whips, Amber has always been pro-rogue…

Amber Rudd Not Standing


Capping a bad week for the Rudds, Amber Rudd has told the Evening Standard she will quit the House of Commons next week as a Tory MP after making peace with Boris Johnson. “I’m not finished with politics, I’m just not standing at this election” she had quit the Tories in solidarity with the 21 Conservatives who were sacked from the whip for voting to prevent a no-deal Brexit in September. This was after she swore loyalty to Boris and promised to accept keeping “No Deal” on the table. She has really made some terrible judgement calls lately.. turns out she did end up leaving the party without Boris after all…

She told Joe Murphy “I spoke to the Prime Minister and had a good meeting with him a few days ago, I’m really confident of my position. I will be leaving the House of Commons on perfectly good terms with the Prime Minister and I want him to succeed. Ms Rudd will meet Chief Whip Mark Spencer today and formally ask for the whip back. I’m happy to leave the House of Commons as a Conservative MP”.  A Tory source however says “Amber Rudd is one of key people who stopped Brexit happening on October 31. She will not get the whip back.” They wish her well…

UPDATE: Chief Whip is unforgiving:

Bank of America Pays Remainers Rudd and Letwin £10,000 Each

Amber Rudd and Oliver Letwin’s register of interests have revealed the two have been seriously cashing in on the speaker circuit to rake in thousands from their vital political expertise. Money well spent…

One three-hour speech followed by Q&A session saw the Bank of America fork out £10,000 apiece to the sage-like political experts – one of whom gave us the Fixed-Term Parliament Act, and the other of whom resigned from Boris’s Government claiming she didn’t think he was trying to get a new Brexit deal. They’re both set to leave parliament very soon, so expect to see the pair raking it in as much as they can, as fast as they can from these events in future…


Explains why they turned up to Parliament together that afternoon…

Rudd Wants to Speak to Man Who Deflowered Flora

Journalist Flora Gill probably wasn’t expecting a reply from her mother, Amber Rudd, when she tweeted about responding to a direct message from the American man who took her virginity ten years ago on her Gap Year. Offering a helpful suggestion for her daughter’s “perfect response” the former Home Secretary suggested she like to speak to him…

Could it be that the former Home Secretary wants to put the cad in a hostile environment?

Well Amber, it’s your lucky day. Guido can reveal the man is Jamison Newall – we have his number if you want it….
