Tim Loughton Clashes with Zarah Sultana Over Woke Diversity & Inclusion Spending

Tory MP Tim Loughton talking sense this afternoon on Politics Live over the ludicrous sums wasted on diversity and inclusion officers across Whitehall:

“At a time when taxes are historically at a very high level, we are spending £427 million on equality, diversity, and inclusiveness staff. Some of whom I’m sure are doing a really good job. But the rest of them, are they really essential, are they really a priority, when we need more nurses, more train drivers… that’s what we are questioning.”

Conservative Way Forward have published a report on their investigation, although co-conspirators will already be familiar with the number of these roles that crop up every ten minutes in the public sector. Loughton is one of 40 MPs to have signed a letter to Chancellor Jeremy Hunt this morning calling for this waste to be rooted out once and for all. Inevitably, Zarah Sultana had to pretend scrapping this sort of thing was “classic Tory ‘divide and conquer.”

Loughton Versus Berry

Tim Loughton has fired back after Jake Berry made headlines on TalkTV last night over Suella Braverman’s re-appointment as Home Secretary. Berry claimed Braverman in fact broke the ministerial code multiple times during her first stint as Home Secretary, including the final one that saw her resign “relating to cybersecurity.”

“From my own knowledge, there were multiple breaches of the ministerial code.

“It was sent from a private email address to another member of parliament. She then sought to copy in that individual’s wife and accidentally sent it to a staffer in parliament. To me that seems a really serious breach, especially when it was documents relating to cybersecurity, as I believe.

“The cabinet secretary had his say at the time. I doubt he’s changed his mind in the last six days but that’s a matter for the prime minister.”

Of course, this claim raises the question of why Liz didn’t ask Suella to resign after the first incident. A point raised by Tory MP Tim Loughton on TimesRadio this morning:

“I haven’t a clue what Jake Barry is referring to, I find it rather odd that he’s come out with this now, the day after he’s been sacked as party chairman. The Prime Minister has signalled his confidence in Suella Braverman and that she held her hands up to the mistake that she’d made. I’m happy to trust the Prime Minister’s judgement. If further investigation needs to be happening, then I’m sure the Prime Minister will sanction that.”

Guido wonders which News UK outlet Sir Jake will choose to return fire from…

During the Tory turmoil of the March recess, journalists calling up MPs’ mobile phones were met with a chorus of foreign dial tones. Some of the backbenchers briefing hacks from ski slopes at least paid for their holidays themselves. Crispin Blunt, Phillip Lee, Tim Loughton, Antoinette Sandbach and Caroline Spelman however enjoyed £2,500 worth of free ski passes courtesy of the Swiss Parliament. The alpine alliance bagged tickets to two of the world’s top skiing resorts, all paid for as part of the British-Swiss All Party Parliamentary Group’s Parliamentary Ski Week. Suspect that is one of the more popular APPGs…
