In what The Sunday Times called “a bombshell move”, the Works and Pensions Secretary and Minister for women and Equalities Amber Rudd, resigned from her position in Boris Johnson’s cabinet and the Conservative Party.
In her letter of resignation, Rudd explained that this was a difficult decision as she had “joined… Cabinet in good faith; accepting that ‘no deal’ had to be on the table”.
She added that now “I no longer believe leaving with a deal is the Government’s main objective”.
Rudd also elaborated that she has not even though there is a lot of emphasis for a ‘no deal’, the same cannot be told for the efforts going into the talks with the European Union.
I have resigned from Cabinet and surrendered the Conservative Whip.
I cannot stand by as good, loyal moderate Conservatives are expelled.
I have spoken to the PM and my Association Chairman to explain.
I remain committed to the One Nation values that drew me into politics. pic.twitter.com/kYmZHbLMES
