Minister Reacts to Equality Adviser Quitting: “I Don’t Even Know Who He Is”

Reacting to the news of No. 10’s most senior black advisor Samuel Kasumu resigning over yesterday’s racism report, Skills minister Gillian Keegan bluntly told Times Radio I don’t even know who he is!” Probably not the political eulogy Kasumu was hoping for…

Incidentally, it’s second time successful for Kasumu’s resignation. Back in February he was on the verge of quitting – prompted by the Kemi Badenoch/Huffington Post row – and despite being persuaded back from the brink his resignation letter still got leaked in full to the press. Guido presumes today’s announcement merely asked Boris to refer back to the last one…

UPDATE: No. 10 now claiming Kasumu was always set to go anyway:

“As he previously set out, he will be leaving government in May – this has been his plan for several months…Any suggestion that this decision has been made this week or that this is linked to the CRED report is completely inaccurate.”
