Can anyone explain to me why it is wrong for the Home Office to have a target for the removal of illegal immigrants? And would not the ideal target be 100 per cent? Rudd is inept, I think. She probably should have gone – although as ever, the thing which pushed her over the edge was nonsensical.

Failing to keep count of how many are coming in and failing to stop them is, of course, the much bigger crime. As is presiding over a magnificent London stabfest between young immigrants and the children of immigrants and doing nothing about it.
