Guess who would want Amber Rudd, the Remain-supporting Cabinet minister, as a friend.
Rudd has not been shy about criticising Theresa May over Brexit, most notably in a newspaper article last month demanding the Prime Minister takes no deal off the table.
But yesterday the MP for Hastings and Rye, which voted “Leave” adopted a new line of attack, using concern among locals about the future of Hastings pier to make a wider point about the Brexit talks. In a “Dear Resident” letter, dated March 21 and sent to all of her constituents, Ms Rudd used “the pier” and the “Pier owner” as analogies for the troubles with the Withdrawal Agreement and Mrs May’s lack of communication skills.
Sam’s “friendship” with Theresa May came to a sticky end
