Warsi Resigns to Spend More Time With Her Diaries

Quite late in Baroness Warsi’s career to discover principle:

How will FCO cope without its ‘Senior Minister of State’?

Cynical and calculating to the end, it is hard to see this resignation as anything other than a naked attempt to salvage her reputation. Warsi was due to go during the reshuffle, but the PM reportedly had second thoughts. Now she will be free to snipe, as they feared…

UPDATE: Warsi’s letter to the PM:

warsi

UPDATE II: No.10 have finally responded:

“The Prime Minister regrets that Baroness Warsi has decided to stand down and is grateful for the excellent work that she has done both as a Minister and in Opposition. Our policy always been consistently clear – the situation in Gaza is intolerable and we’ve urged both sides to agree to an immediate and unconditional ceasefire.”

      This will be a happy day for Cameron. He’s been trying to get rid of her for ages, but the politics never aligned sufficiently for him to do it without PR damage.

      As others have said, she was a waste of space, but she was also aligned to some very dodgy interests who would have eventually led to scandal of some sort. A ticking time bomb which has happily now defused itself.

        I think she prefers the morals of those who breed children solely to be explosive delivery devices. I noticed the irony of so many idiotic and gullible lefties retweeting that picture of a dead child, blown apart at the waist. So inflamed with self-rightious indignation were they that they did not realise that the explosion injuries sustained by that child were also consistent with an explosive vest, which hamas would have happily strapped to that same child, in order to send his soul to paradise.

        Why is it OK for hamas to do that to their own children, deliberately targeting their children in their murderous hatred, but it is evil beyond comprehension on the part of Israel, when Israel targets a rocket storage location and the child is killed by Hamas deliberating placing him in harms way?

        I am pretty sure, when one looks at the big picture, that it is Hamas who are in the wrong here.

She does nothing to aid genuine integration, and only worked to enforece acceptence of increasing division.

      When the fit hits the shan, we know whose side she will be on. She was a taqiyya spewing enemy of tolerance and multiculturalism, as she was laying the groundwork for an Islamic takeover and the imposition of a totalitarian monoculture under Sharia law.

      Israel did not feel moved by international pressure to enter talks. They had an objective to achieve before talks could happen. An objective which was often repeated so even the hard of thinking, Nazi loving, Hamas supporters could have grasped it with some effort. That objective was to destroy all Hamas’ terror tunnels.

      They achieved that objective, so talks can now proceed.

      As for the body count, it would not have been anywhere near as high, if Hamas had heeded the multiple warnings of where Israel was going to attack, by moving people AWAY from them. Instead they herded people INTO and ONTO the targetted buildings to maximise the number of their own dead.

      baring that it mind, therefore, it is a miracle of Israeli restraint that Israel dropped in excess of 3800 missiles into Gaza and only 1,800 people were killed. That is far less than 1 per missile, in spite of Hamas’ attempts to massively increase the number of Palestinian dead.
