Daily Telegraph: Baroness Warsi's resignation is a blow for the Tories as they struggle to woo Muslim voters

Daily Telegraph: Baroness Warsi's resignation is a blow for the Tories as they struggle to woo Muslim voters

Whatever the limitations or otherwise of Baroness Warsi – and there are people out there who admired the way she had started to stand-up to Number 10 – she has, with this resignation and the manner of her departure, provided a focus for Muslim concerns and for renewed criticism of the Government’s position.

I say this as someone who is sympathetic to Israel. I merely observe that it is Westminster village and Tory bubble-thinking to presume that the resignation over Tory policy on Israel by a Muslim minister won’t harm the Tory party's efforts to woo Muslim voters.
