>> But I do think->> Britain's Interior Minister has resigned saying, she accidentally misled parliament. Amber Rudd had faced criticism after it emerged that some migrants from Commonwealth countries who settled in the UK between the 40s and 70s had been wrongly-declared illegal immigrants. In a resignation letter to Prime Minister Theresa May, Rudd said she inadvertently misled a parliamentary committee last Wednesday by denying the government had targets for the deportation of illegal migrants.

But on Sunday, the Guardian leaked a letter from Rudd to May last year. In it, she stated an ambitious but deliverable aim to deport more illegal immigrants over the next few years. May accepted her resignation on Sunday. The scandal puts the British PM in the spotlight too, and has raised questions about May's six-year stint as Interior Minister before she became Prime Minister.

The opposition says May was also responsible with label shadow home secretary calling her the architect of the crisis. Now, the resignation comes as a blow to the Prime Minister who loses one of her closest allies. Rudd may also prove hard to replace. As an outspoken pro-European, her departure could upset the delicate balance of pro and anti-Brexit forces in the cabinet.
