”The Home Secretary Amber Rudd seems to be the latest politician to stumble over numbers after she was unable to correctly answer a question about house prices in her constituency.
ITV News Meridian asked Ms Rudd if she knew what the average house price was in her constituency of Hastings and Rye.
The Home Secretary replied “er yes I do, do you know what it is?” to which the reporter responded “I do, you tell me” Ms Rudd then laughed and replied “it’s certainly only a little bit above a hundred thousand, that’s true”.
After giving a very confident answer the Home Secretary was told she was over £100,000 out as the average house price in her constituency is £217,983.
Mrs Rudd is not the first politician in the election campaign to trip over the numbers.”

GW: Rudd ”got it wrong” when involved in various companies offshore that went bust owing millions. Why is she even in the Home Sec role with that reputation?
