If you’re going to avoid a tough question, you might want to do it a bit more subtly than Amber Rudd did on Sky News.
The home secretary was interviewed about the Home Office’s promise that it will spend £40 million on a new strategy aimed at tackling violent crime and, unsurprisingly, a Sky News reporter wanted to know where it was coming from.
“Can I ask about the money? £40m, it’s not new money, it’s coming from within the existing Home Office budget? It does seem to suggest that something has to be cut in order to fund it,” he quizzed.
