Didn't Rudd resign over lying to a select committee?
That was the direct cause. Although without Windrush, she wouldn't have been before the select committee.
She was due to appear again today, but I can't see why her resignation should prevent that.

So what next for Ms Rudd, do we think? Will she join the "awkward squad" of Soubry, Clarke, Grieve et al, or will she be a good apparatchik and toe the party line?

Much of this will, I think, depend upon two factors.

1: How much she feels shat upon by May.
2: Whether a hell-hath-no-fury sisterhood is developing that would bring her in to the fold with Anna Soubry, Justine Greening and Nicky Morgan.

There is a question though concerning timing. There are really important EU amendments on the near parliamentary horizon and it is open to debate whether Rudd will have composed herself in time.

It’ll be Javid, because the Tory logic will be having a darkie in the job will keep the other darkies happy after all that fuss where they tried to send them back where they came from.


Backbencher Kwasi Kwarteng has been wheeled out a lot to defend the Windrush debacle.
He was in a relationship with Rudd until earlier this year. Him being the only spokesman available's possibly chivalry.

Pictured: Rudd and her majority in a perfect example of why Tories shouldn't interact with human beings or social media.

Cue lots of "You can't say anything (these days) without the nig-nogs taking offence" branespeakers.
