There’s no love lost between Shapps and his predecessor as Tory chairman, Sayeeda Warsi. Tension has boiled over today in light of the former Foreign Office minister’s crackers intervention blaming Israel for a terrorist attack on its own citizens:
To be clear @SayeedaWarsi speaks for herself, not the party. Our prayers are w/ families of those murdered. No justification for terrorism.
— Grant Shapps (@grantshapps) November 18, 2014
So that’s what Warsi meant by now being able to “speak more freely”…
