Rudd’s resignation letter in full:
“The #windrush generation came to our country after the war, to rebuild our nation after the devastation of the war.
Isn’t it the truth that under her the Home Office became heartless and hopeless? And under her is a Tory government that is both callous & incompetent?
This is a shameful episode and the responsibility for it lies with the Prime Minister.
Her pandering to bogus immigration targets led to a hostile environment for people who are contributing to our country.
It led to British citizens being denied NHS treatment, losing their jobs, homes and pensions, thrown into detention centres like criminals, and even deported.”
