“One of the lessons we have learnt in the last five years in politics is that Muslims that go to Parliament don’t have any morals or principles.”
Strewth! That’s a bit strong!! I’m in danger of being arrested for “inciting racial hatred” aren’t I?
Only trouble is that it wasn’t said by me. It was said by someone with a brown face, whereas I have a white face. So that reduces the chances of any arrest by a considerable margin.
Secondly, it was said by a highly paid member of the establishment. So that reduces the chances of any arrests even further.
It was actually said, so it seems, by Baroness Warsi, then Tory Shadow Cabinet minister for …… wait for it …… “community cohesion” prior to the recent general election.
Baroness Warsi is a bit slow off the mark if she has to wait until Muslims get into parliament before discovering that Muslims have “no morals” (at least in the area of politics, elections and so on). It has been abundantly clear for a long time that electoral fraud, particularly via dodgy postal votes, is heavily over-represented in Muslim areas, as Warsi herself has recently acknowledged.
Anyway, well done Baroness Warsi for getting there long after most of the rest of us got there.
Despite her reported comments (linked above) Warsi is reported in the Observer newspaper to be the Tory party’s “secret weapon” in the forthcoming parliamentary by-election in Oldham East and Saddleworth on Thursday, January the 13th.
Last Thursday, it was reported, Warsi attended a meeting with 30 to 40 woman of Pakistani origin wearing traditional dress. She reportedly spoke in fluent Urdu, asking them to share their concerns with her. Before leaving, Warsi pressed them on the issue of voting: “I need you to turn out. If Kashif (Ali, the Conservative candidate) becomes MP, you – Oldham – will have a direct line to Westminster. Tell people at home to vote, tell friends to vote. If you have a postal vote, fill it in and send it!”
