Resignation

There was a resignation from the government today. Baroness Warsi resigned in protest at the government's stance on Israel.
Resignation
Good to see how Clegg jumped in quickly to distance himself from the government's stance.
I don't think she will be missed in the long term and see it as likely that her role will be absorbed into the Foreign Office by other ministers.

Re: Resignation

According to reports she informed others before formally informing Cameron, doubt she will be any great loss.

Re: Resignation

Got to be honest, I won't miss her or her softening up of our country. I don't recall her doing anything positive for us either.
I will stop there.

Re: Resignation

She had a chequered history also - twice being found guilty of breaching ministerial code in relation to expenses and renting out her house.

Re: Resignation

With her history of me me me I would assume her ministerial job has got in the way of some lucrative offer.

Re: Resignation

Not to forget she also failed to get elected in her home town.
I think this will all get eclipsed in view of Boris Johnson announcing this morning that he will stand as an MP.

Re: Resignation

Completely agree with the cynicism here concerning this resignation. The last thing this Government needs is people resigning on principle because she believes this Government’s position is helping to prolong the slaughter in Gaza

Her replacement has been announced as Baroness Anelay.

The announcement from Boris today has certainly taken the spotlight off this issue. Taken Millie's thunder Wink

Re: Resignation

Boris for PM!!!
I mean come on, Camoron is clearly out of touch, Labours Miliband Bros are just as clueless and Clegg lost it the day he made a pact with the tory devil.
Boris is one of the few politicians that I see as different and in touch with reality.
