Amber Rudd accused of mocking Theresa May by complaining about delay to the reopening of Hastings Pier


AMBER Rudd was last night accused of mocking the PM on Brexit by complaining about Hastings Pier not reopening at the end of March – as “originally planned”.

In a letter to locals in her Hastings constituency, she said assurances it would open in May had to be “backed up with actions”.

The Remainer minister said she was “incredibly disappointed” at the hold-up. She added: “Our town cannot keep experiencing delay after delay”.

Readers spotted spot the striking similarities with Theresa May’s stark warnings about a long delay to Brexit, originally planned for March 29.

The PM is in Brussels to beg for an extension to Article 50 – but has ruled out pleading for a long delay.

Mrs May has said the delay is a matter of “great personal regret” and she is not prepared to approve a long one.

Labour MP Neil Coyle told The Sun: “When Cabinet members are openly mocking the Prime Minister, it is clear that all authority and respect that usually accompanies the role has been lost in Government as it has up and down the country.

“May seems to be a joke to her senior Ministerial team.”
