With a flounce and a Tweet, Cameron’s hired Islam promoter, Baroness Sayeeda Warsi has resigned from the Cabinet, over what she saw as Cameron’s government not being sufficiently pro-Hamas for her liking.
Warsi, this worthless Islamic turbo-whiner, was appointed by David ‘Conservative in name only’ Cameron in order to try to grab a share of the whipped mosque vote that so often goes to the Labour Party. She hasn’t managed to achieve this grabbing of the Islamic vote because when it comes to Islamopandering, nobody at all can get anywhere near to how blatantly Labour appeases Muslims and Islam.
It’s so obvious that Warsi’s appointment was made not because of her achievements but because of who and what she is, because she is a Muslim woman. Because of this Cameron really did so to speak, buy a ‘pig in a poke’ with Warsi. Tick-box appointments like this often come back to bite the employer on the arse badly. She has been a fifth columnist for Islam within the Cabinet, at a time when violent Islamic Jihad is probably this country’s greatest medium to long term threat. She has also been instrumental in pushing the idea of ‘Shariah Finance’ on the City of London and she has spoken out in favour of the idea of women ‘choosing’ to wear a Burkah.
She has also been one of those voices whispering in the Prime Minister’s ear dishonest platitudes, such as ‘Islam is a religion of peace’. British politics is all the better for Warsi removing herself from it.
Warsi was placed by Cameron in the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, a department so notorious for its pro-Arab and pro-Muslim bias, that it has been known by detractors as ‘the Camel Corps’ for some decades. As the Orwellian-sounding ‘Minister for Faith and Communities’, her job was to make Cameron’s Conservatives look and sound a lot less like traditional Conservatives. However, all that she has done is make Cameron look like a shifty politically correct box-ticker, who doesn’t cares whether someone can do the job they are tasked with, but who only cares that they ticked the boxes marked, brown, Muslim and female.
Apart from the BBC, which on its World At One and PM programmes on Radio 4 yesterday, presented Warsi to be some sort of secular saint, some commentators have seen Warsi for what she truly is, which is amongst other things, someone who could not win an election and had to be appointed in order to get a position.
The writer and commentator Douglas Murray said that Baroness Warsi’s departure would not harm Cameron and that she had been a ‘nuisance’ whilst in Government. He accused her of running a parallel set of policies in the fields of ‘community cohesion’ and had set herself up as a ‘Minister for Muslims’ which he correctly described as a ‘sectarian’ thing to do.
See Mr Murray lay into Baroness Warsi’s dubious record here:
Paul Weston of the LibertyGB party, in comment on a Breitbart story on Warsi’s resignation, voiced what many people may have felt, when they listened to Baroness Warsi’s various utterances and observed her conduct.
“Baroness Warsi is a Muslim. She therefore looks at the world through the prism of Islam. This obviously affects the way she views Britain, England; our culture, history and traditions. Warsi is not an extremist, but she would still like to change England to suit her beliefs. “
I’d like to add to that the note that many different people have come to Britain over the centuries, but they have nearly all made the effort to become British and learnt or decided not to make unnecessary or outrageous demands of others, unlike the followers of Islam. Warsi’s conduct whilst in office did show to a certain extent that when push comes to shove, she would choose the Ummah over the UK. She didn’t distance herself from Islam to inspire confidence, although she did have some run-ins with the Jihadi-beardies because she didn’t cover her hair. She acted as a spokesperson for Islam within government, rather than a spokesperson for the government within Islam. Mr Murray was refreshingly, and probably correctly, cynical about the timing of Baroness Warsi’s resignation and that this may have been timed as part of a ‘career move’. It will be interesting to see just where she goes next?
Baroness Warsi’s resignation letter was a sight to behold. Here it is from the BBC website with my comments in plain text.
“Dear Prime Minister
For some weeks, in meeting and discussion, I have been open and honest about my views on the conflict in Gaza and our response to it.”
In other words you were hanging round the PM and Cabinet going ‘poor, poor Hamas/ Palestinians’. Anybody with more than half a brain can see that Hamas started this current conflict just as they’ve started others. Warsi’s view as to who is to blame for the conflict in the region, is as counterfactual as saying it was the Poles fault for being invaded by Nazi Germany in 1939.
My view has been that our policy in relation to the Middle East Peace Process generally but more recently our approach and language during the current crisis in Gaza is morally indefensible, is not in Britain’s national interest and will have a long term detrimental impact on our reputation internationally and domestically.
Let me translate this for those who do not speak fluent Lingua Bovis Fimus (the language of bullshit). Does Baroness Warsi truly expect the British government to not back a democratic sovereign government such as Israel and instead back Hamas, who are nothing more than a bunch of genocidal savages who hide behind children and who glory in the deaths of innocents? If she does, then she has no right whatsoever to claim the moral high ground and decide what is, and is not, morally indefensible. I’d like to ask Baroness Warsi just how it is in Britain’s national interest to be on the side of savages and savagery?
Particularly as the Minister with responsibility for the United Nations, The International Criminal Court and Human Rights I believe our approach in relation to the current conflict is neither consistent with our values, specifically our commitment to the rule of law and our long history of support for International Justice. In many ways the absence of the experience and expertise of colleagues like Ken Clarke and Dominic Grieve has over the last few weeks become very apparent.
If she praises those of the calibre of Ken Clarke, then Cameron’s Cabinet is truly better off without her.
This decision has not been easy. It has been a privilege to serve for 3 years in your Shadow Cabinet and over 4 years in your Cabinet. Introducing you in Blackpool in 2005 as you made your bid for leadership I had the pleasure of being there at the start of the journey and it would have been rewarding to have been there til the end.
Why is it difficult? It’s not as if you are going to have to sign on when you leave is it? There’s presumably some nice, probably publicly funded, third sector organisation or think tank who will employ this prime example of political ballast.
The last decade has given me the opportunity to work with some of the best in the Conservative Party and indeed in Government. William Hague was probably one of the finest Foreign Secretaries this country has seen and has been inspirational. He dismantled foreign policy making by sofa government and restored decision making and dignity to the Foreign Office. There is however great unease across the Foreign Office, amongst both Minister and senior officials, in the way recent decisions are being made.
Hague? The ‘finest Foreign Secretary this country has seen’? Do me a favour. Although by some accounts Hague is a pleasant fellow, I wouldn’t put him at the same level as the Duke of Wellington or Arthur Henderson or Sir Alec Douglas-Home or even Ramsay MacDonald. Baroness Warsi has, in my opinion, dished out a little too much ‘brown tongue’ to Hague on this occasion.
Eric Pickles has supported me tirelessly in our work on combating hate crime.
Personally I’d prefer that he and his department concentrated on controlling local government waste and making sure that our bins are emptied in a timely manner.
Challenging anti-Semitism and Islamaphobia and the pioneering work of celebration faith in the public sphere.
There is no such thing as Islamophobia, only justifiable Islamo-scepticism. Islam is not something that people are or should be irrationally afraid of. There are very good reasons to be sceptical and concerned about the ideology of Islam.
This new found confidence in Government has allowed me to take the very public International lead on religious freedom, specifically on the ever growing crisis of the persecution of Christians. However, early evidence from the Home Office and others shows that the fallout of the current conflict and the potential for the crisis in Gaza and our response to it becoming a basis for radicalisation could have consequences for us for years to come.
But Warsi has not resigned over Britain’s failure to protect or even speak up for the Christians of the Middle East has she? She choose not to resign because of the ongoing and mostly ignored genocide of Christians in the Middle East, but instead has flounced over a bunch of violent savages who are getting their own people killed. Note well the veiled threat in her comment that the consequences of Britain not making Israel into the villain will be a rise in Jihadis operating both within and from Britain. Would a Catholic minister in government make a statement that if Britain’s policy towards Ulster is not changed then Irish-Britons would become violent? Of course they would not, at least not in the current political climate anyway. It is only Islam and its representatives who have to reference the violence that is so very close to the surface when it comes to Islam. Yet again we have a British Muslim in a senior political position, who proves to us all that it’s not the Methodists we all need to worry about, it is the not-so-moderate Muslims.
From both Eric and William I learnt the art of reconciling passion and idealism with pragmatism and realism, but I always said that long after life in politics I must be able to live with myself for the decisions I took or the decisions I supported. By staying in Government at this time I do not feel I can be sure of that.
There has been a bit too much pragmatism coming out of the Department for Communities and Local Government lately, especially regarding some of Britain’s corrupt, and often Labour run, Islamic enclaves. If Warsi considered Pickles as a friend, then it lowers the estimation in which I hold Pickles. Maybe the reason why there has not been the much needed purge of Britain’s corrupt Islamic mini-states has been the influence of Warsi?
It is therefore with regret that I am writing to resign.
You may regret going but many of us are glad to see you gone.
You will continue to have my personal support as leader of the Conservative party as you continue to ensure that our Party evolves to meet the challenges we face in Britain today and ensure that the Party is relevant and responsive to all communities that make up today’s Britain.
In other words, Baroness Warsi will continue to pop up like the proverbial bad penny speaking the usual verbal faeces about ‘diversity’, multiculturalism and Islam.
Now bugger off and don’t let the door hit you on the backside on your way out. The last thing British politics needs at this moment is yet more Islamic fifth columnists like Baroness Warsi.
