Mirza Asked PM to Apologise, Unapologetic Pool Clip Clarification Triggered Resignation

Downing Street policy chief Munira Mirza was outraged about the Savile line deployed by Boris on Monday. She made clear to him she thought it went too far and told the PM this morning she would be resigning. Boris asked her to hold off and said he would make amends via a pool clip this afternoon. When the pool clip came without an apology, more of a clarification, she confirmed her resignation via an email which concluded:

Even now, I hope you find it in yourself to apologise for a grave error of judgement made under huge pressure. I appreciate that our political culture is not forgiving when people say sorry, but regardless, it is the right thing to do. It is not too late for you but, I’m sorry to say, it is too late for me.

Sorry seemed to be too hard a word for Boris…

Munira Mirza Resigns as No.10 Head of Policy Over Savile Attack

The Speccie has just revealed the bombshell resignation of No. 10 policy chief Munira Mirza. She says she’s quitting over Boris’s Starmer Savile attack, resigned from her post after being by Boris’s side for over 14 years. Formerly one of Boris’s most loyal lieutenants…

In her resignation letter she wrote:

I believe it was wrong for you to imply this week that Keir Starmer was personally responsible for allowing Jimmy Savile to escape justice. There was no fair or reasonable basis for that assertion. This was not the usual cut and thrust of politics; it was an inappropriate and partisan reference to a horrendous case of child sex abuse. You tried to clarify your position today but, despite my urging, you did not apologise for the misleading impression you gave.”

Guido’s SpAd list has been updated accordingly…

Left Chanting Hate Towards Munira Mirza for Wrongthink

On Saturday another Black Lives Matter protest took place and it revealed the left has found a new hate target. Downing Street’s policy adviser, Munira Mirza, who as the speaker at the Hyde Park rally identified “does not believe what we believe in…”. Mirza is a former City Hall adviser on culture to Boris when he was mayor and a firm opponent of woke thinking and ‘grievance culture’.

At City Hall she ended Ken Livingstone’s cultural events where people were hectored about why racism was bad and accosted by activists explaining why Fidel Castro was a hero. She ended “anti-racist fireworks” on New Year’s Eve, just trusting people to have fun and not be instructed by activists about the dangers of racism. All evidence of her wrongthink crimes.

The virulence of the left’s onslaught against Mirza is because they recognise that she possesses a coherent ideological alternative to their decades-long weaponisation of racism for class war purposes. She has a history of challenging the ideological dominance of identity politics, championing an alternative universalist approach rejecting the imposition of formal ethnic categories. She advocates dismantling the countless diversity policies that encourage people to see everything through the damaging prism of racial difference.

Munira does not believe in appeasing the left-wing grievance culture and she is exactly the right person to shape a commission to make real progress on race issues rather than stoking division. Overturning decades of manipulation of anti-racist sympathy towards left-wing solutions will cause an epic backlash. Munira does not believe what they believe and nor does anyone who wants to see real economic and social progress for all minorities.
