Civil servants' union boss hits back at Rudd over Windrush blame | UK news | The Guardian
Penman writes: “The Home Office is not a sentient being so [Rudd’s comment] was implicitly a criticism of her staff. If she’s serious about understanding why this might be the case, she would do better to consider the political strategy and rhetoric adopted by her government over many years rather than suggesting it is individual civil servants who have lost their focus.

“Since 2010, the net migration target of 100,000 has acted as a lightning rod for a series of legislative attempts to cut migration and a crackdown on illegal immigrants as the Conservatives felt the electoral pressure from Ukip and it was clear there were few medals to be awarded in the Home Office for anyone trying to advise a more cautious approach.

“The real lessons from this scandal need to be learned by the politicians who got exactly what they asked for from the civil service, even if that fact is now a little inconvenient.”
