On resignation of a Tory minister over Gaza

by xenatisch


As an opposition to any form of conservatism and capitalism, I generally have no common perspective with Tory politicians. Nor have I forgotten the expenses scandal Baroness Warsi got away with in 2012; or for that matter, her warning to Labour on “allowing schoolchildren to be propositioned for homosexual relationships”. However, I believe in redemption where people try to right their wrong doings. If there is one conservative politician who can be said to have tried to accomplish this goal and regain some public respect; it would be Baroness Warsi, who seems to have prioritised humanity over political interests. Earlier today, in an unprecedented action, she tendered her resignation to Prime Minister Cameron, stating:

Particularly as the Minister with responsibility for the United Nations, The International Criminal Court and Human Rights I believe our approach in relation to the current conflict is neither consistent with our values, specifically our commitment to the rule of law and our long history of support for International Justice.

I salute Sayeeda Warsi for her reputable action, and urge other ministers to stand in solidarity with her.
