Why Windrush is a watershed. Sajid Javid's historic promotion

Amber Rudd leaving home yesterday to face further accusations of misleading MPs over the Windrush scandal. Hours later she called Theresa May to resign

"It appears that the Prime Minister, by asking the new Home Secretary to conduct an inquiry separately, without any of the clear processes and powers that we're talking about, is trying to avoid accountability", a Labour spokesman told reporters.

IN ordinary political circumstances, Sajid Javid's landmark appointment as Home Secretary would be a source of national pride.

Quizzed about her role in Windrush controversy and Ms Rudd's resignation during a visit to Cumbria, the Prime Minister insisted the public want the government to deal with people who have no right to be in the country.

May declined to answer directly when she was asked whether she should have taken personal responsibility for the scandal instead of Rudd.

"It is only fair on ordinary working people, people who work hard, who contribute to see that those people who come here illegally, who perhaps haven't contributed, aren't able to make the same use of services".

Fed Holds Rates Steady, Notes Strongly Rising Business Investment
National data already indicated that expectations for a steady headline rate in April would turn out to be too optimistic. Inflation goal The Fed is clear that it's nearing its inflation target of 2 per cent over the medium term.

Mr Javid inherits a Home Office bedevilled by the institutional indifference that has been exposed by the Windrush scandal - and his predecessor Amber Rudd's humiliating resignation after she misled Parliament.

Rudd said in her resignation letter she had "inadvertently misled" the select committee on targets.

They received indefinite leave to remain, but many who later failed to get their papers in order have been targeted by immigration laws meant to create a "hostile environment" for illegal immigrants.

As Alan Johnson and Charles Clarke, Home Secretaries in the last Labour government, suggest, this scandal could possibly have been avoided if Mrs May had not in one of her first acts as Home Secretary in 2010 dropped plans to introduce identity cards.

He said: "I guess part of the tragedy of Amber Rudd leaving is that I think last week she hinted that having no customs union wouldn't necessarily be a red line anymore".

Apple Managed to Sell 52.2 Million iPhones in the Last Quarter
Apple's second quarter revenue included $9.1bn from its services business, which includes Apple Music , the App Store and iCloud. The maker of iPhones, iPads and other products posted revenue of $61.14 billion in the period, also exceeding Street forecasts.

He later moved his family - including Javid, one of five siblings - to the southwestern English city of Bristol, working as a bus driver and then taking over a ladieswear store. We will do right by the Windrush generation'.

The furor began weeks ago when the Guardian newspaper reported that some people from the Caribbean who have lived in Britain for decades had been refused medical care or threatened with deportation because they couldn't produce paperwork proving their right to reside in the country. Some say she paved the way for the ongoing fiasco over the fate of the "Windrush" generation, named after the ship that brought the first wave of Caribbean immigrants to Britain after World War II.

Rudd's dramatic exit comes as a severe setback for May, who publicly declared her "full confidence" in Rudd as recently as Friday and faces potentially bruising local authority elections across metropolitan England on Thursday.

The scandal has also raised eyebrows across the English Channel, with European Union officials anxious about the post-Brexit immigration status of the three million EU citizens who now live in Britain.
