The Departure of Baroness Warsi

I am deeply disappointed by the resignation of Baroness Warsi, an important figure within the Cabinet by virtue of her being an Asian female in a party led by white men. At a time when the Conservative Party badly needs to reach out to both women and ethnic minorities, this sends the wrong signals.

Baroness Warsi had concerns about the removal from the Cabinet of Ken Clarke and Dominic Grieve, figures who were voices of moderation in a party that is increasingly moving to the Right. I fear our party is becoming one that represents only white Englishmen living in the south.
