You seem to suggest that it is a badge of honour.
I'm not suggesting anything I'm trying to establish what makes Rudd tick; A dutiful soldier who takes one for the team or a political masochist?

The political Sado-Masochist.

Get whipped by those above, for the opportunity of dishing it out to those below.

Amber Rudd was told about migrant removal targets, leak reveals
Amber Rudd’s insistence that she knew nothing of Home Office targets for immigration removals risks unravelling following the leak of a secret internal document prepared for her and other senior ministers.

The six-page memo, passed to the Guardian, says the department has set “a target of achieving 12,800 enforced returns in 2017-18” and boasts that “we have exceeded our target of assisted returns”.

It adds that progress has been made on a “path towards the 10% increased performance on enforced returns, which we promised the home secretary earlier this year”.

The document was prepared by Hugh Ind, the director general of the Home Office’s Immigration Enforcement agency, in June last year and copied to Rudd and Brandon Lewis, the then immigration minister, as well as several senior civil servants and special advisers.

The leak contradicts Rudd’s public position on what she knew about the setting of targets for the enforced removal of migrants.

I remind the poster of what happened to one Stewart Jackson when he was finally dumped by Peterborough's electorate.

Yes, because they are a sub-committee of parliament which enquires and reports back (via the library).

So she will start insulting her constituents?
