← Tory chief Baroness Warsi attacks 'bigotry' against Muslims

I hadn't realised until this point that Warsi was a member of the cabinet. She's unelected, of course, having engineered massive swings away from the Conservatives on the occasions she actually stood for election. Realising she'd never be elected, the Tories, in a shameful bit of tokenism, made her a life peer.

As Peter Cook might have said, she has risen without a trace.

Having seen her speak inanely on television quite few times in the past, her latest load of drivel comes as little surprise. You might have thought that one of the few advantages of having the Conservatives in government would be less pandering to Islamic sensibilities but it seems like even in this regard they will disappoint.
