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….

Tories Rush Candidate Selection in Rudd’s Seat

The Tories have finally and definitively closed the door on any return Amber Rudd may have been hoping for, by opening candidate selections in her seat of Hastings and Rye. Before her expulsion she was in two minds about hopping to a safer seat for the next election anyway…

Ahead of an inevitable election, the Tories have also opened selections in

  • Meriden – retiring Caroline Spelman’s seat
  • Ruislip, Northwood & Pinner – retiring Nick Hurd’s seat
  • Sevenoaks – retiring Sir Michael Fallon’s seat

Seats with an average majority of 18,365. Ripe pickings for prospective careerists, though you need to get your application in by this Friday…

Only Five of the 21 Rebels Want to Return to Tory Fold

Only five of the 21 expelled Tory rebels still wish to return to the Conservative Party, according to a senior One Nation source. Namely, Amber Rudd, David Guake, Richard Benyon and Stephen and Philip Hammond. You couldn’t guess some of them want to return given how they’ve been behaving since losing the whip…

Whilst it was obvious some of the cohort – such as Sam Gyimah who is now a Lib Dem, and Rory Stewart who plans on standing as an independent – had given up on rejoining to Tory Party’s loving embrace, it was still assumed the majority of independent remainers would look at regaining the whip once Brexit is sorted. It’s also believed that only Rory has any chance of keeping his seat if standing as an independent…

In other wet Tory news, the Tory Reform Group held their one nation drinks reception yesterday, during which Justice Secretary Robert Buckland said multiple times “I am the law” and one member fainted. They’re truly dropping like flies…

UPDATE: A sign of further Tory independents to Lib Dem defections? Anne Milton and Guto Bebb spotted plotting with Phillip Lee and Sam Gyimah in PCH…
