Rudd says standing as an independent candidate in Hastings would ‘divide old friends’

Amber Rudd has pulled no punches in an exclusive interview she has given to the London Evening Standard published earlier today. In it she says Boris Johnson’s ‘casual approach’ to the safety of MPs is ‘immoral’.

She accuses the Prime Minister of deploying ‘aggressive language’ that she believes  ‘incites violence.

And Ms Rudd, who has been Hastings and Rye MP since 2010, reveals she may stand as an Independent Conservative candidate in a London constituency at the coming general election which she believes will not take place until the spring.

The interview says: “Most intriguing is what she will do at the next general election. Rudd will not stand in Hastings, as it would divide old friends, but the lifelong Londoner reveals she is looking at seats in London. ‘The most likely place for me to stand, if I need to stand as an Independent Conservative, would be somewhere with a strong Remain constituency, so I am looking around.’
