Trojan Horse Row: Where’s Warsi?

Guido is wondering where the government’s faith and communities minister Sayeeda Warsi has got to. With the Birmingham Trojan Horse row rumbling on, we are yet to hear from the usually vocal Baroness on an issue well within her purview. Are we expected to believe that nobody has called Warsi or complained to her? Is the Senior Minister of State too important for such trivial bickering, or has she been gagged?

Incidentally, Warsi has been causing trouble in Sajid Javid’s back yard. The first big intervention as Culture Secretary from Britain’s first Asian Secretary of State was to declare that all immigrants should learn English to try and integrate themselves into British society. It seems Warsi did not get the memo though…

Just a week later, she conducted a meeting in Javid’s neighbouring constituency of Stourbridge entirely in Urdu. English speaking local residents complained that they could not understand what was going on, telling Warsi “I think it should have been translated into English as well.” Is this standard practice for a Minister of the Crown?
