UK Cabinet Minister Resigns 3 Days After Breitbart London Says 'She Has to Go'
British Minister of State Baroness Sayeeda Warsi has resigned this morning, telling her Twitter followers that she was unable to support the British government’s policy in the Middle East, with specific relation to the Israel-Hamas conflict.
Warsi, who Breitbart London reported has been attempting to stage a coup on the issue behind the scenes, has been a long-standing critic of Israel’s attempts to demolish Hamas’s terrorist infrastructure in the Gaza Strip.
Just 3 days ago, Breitbart London editor Raheem Kassam wrote of Warsi:
It is no secret that this unelected woman was co-opted into the UK Cabinet in David Cameron's vain and racist attempt to have the first female, Muslim minister in British history. But I'm not sure that's what history will remember about her, or about him for that matter.
Instead, if anything at all is recollected about Warsi, it should be her ability to be one of the most tribal, divisive, and counter-productive characters in the modern British government. Her record speaks for itself.
Little surprise then that Warsi went to ground over the Trojan Horse affair, only to resurface to start towing the Hamas line in the latest Israeli action against terrorism in Gaza. She's positively obsessed.
She's sent 24 tweets and retweets about the issue since July 12th. That's out of 45 in total. That's 53 percent. Over half her focus being spent on a situation far more complex than she makes out by writing, "#EidWithGaza" or by retweeting the latest United Nations condemnation of an event that never even took place.
So here I am, adding my name to the list of hundreds who have already said it: she has to go.
Earlier this morning Warsi tweeted: "With deep regret I have this morning written to the Prime Minister & tendered my resignation. I can no longer support Govt policy on #Gaza."
Since she is no longer in the Cabinet, nor beholden to the British Foreign Office line, Warsi is now expected to go full pelt in her anti-Israel lobbying. She follows other noteworthy Parliamentarians such as the anti-Semitic David Ward, and notoriously divisive George Galloway, to express disagreement with the UK position on the conflict.
Warsi’s resignation seems oddly timed given the latest ceasefire in the region.
