Following the news that Amber Rudd has resigned as Home Secretary, East of England Labour MEP Alex Mayer said:
“It is right Amber Rudd has gone. She misled both Parliament and the public.
"This whole affair has shone a light onto the Tories’ heartless and hopeless Home Office policies.
"I’m deeply worried that this debaclé shows incompetence at heart of Home Office at time when we will shortly need them to set up and administer a system to process applications from the 3 million EU citizens currently living in the UK."
