Are there two people called Sayeeda Warsi in the Tory party?

I  only ask because David Cameron has appointed one Sayeeda Warsi as Shadow Communities Secretary and to the House of Lords, whilst this Sayeeda Warsi was called homophobic following her election literature. Would be a bit of a problem if they are one and the same wouldn’t it?

  • Given her role in promoting “Community Cohesion” it is ironic that she has also been accused of ditributing leaflets with distinct messages to different communities.

  • “it is ironic that she has also been accused of ditributing leaflets with distinct messages to different communities.”

    Almost as ironinc as such a practice being called into question by a Lib Dem.

    M,

    The Tories are renowned for this. Anne Widecombe even used the same picture twice, one superimposed with a message preaching about community cohesion and the other saying no to immigration.

    Coupled with the Tories falsely accusing a Lib Dem candidate of rape, don’t think you can get all high and mighty about leaflets.

    You are almost correct – the picture featured AW but was used by a tory in Dorset.

    The Tory blogs like http://www.iaindale.blogspot.com are very silent on this. I guess they must be red faced at another clanger from David grammer schools and shoes in a car Cameron

    When are they going to put the sign up outside the Tory party, “Homophobes and bigots welcome here”?

    Peter,

    Thanks for the correction.

    That sounds right actually. bloody Tories!

    I also saw somewhere that the Tory Candidate for Truro is using a picture of herself on her current web, when she was a twenty year old. She is now a 50 year old. Is this deception in the Tory ranks.
    Is this a also a case of the pot calling the kettle Black?
    Surely our Liberal Democrat MPs in Cornwall should have something to say about this.

    Sorry Welshproud liberal I made an accidental typing error above.

  • I just posted something about this on the iaindale blog. And if by magic it was removed!

    I think it is not good to speak with a forked tongue, lets hope you speak up to your own Lib Dem colleagues when they do it.

    In Ealing the Lib Dems campaigned on lowering Council tax despite the fact that they voted against every Labour administration budget in the Council chamber on the basis that tax had not gone up enough. The first Labour budget that the Lib Dems saw fit to vote for was in 2003 with the infamous 26% Council tax rise – just one year after they campaigned to reduce tax.

  • Some of us may recall a certain Michael Portillo, who was elected to Parliament in the 1984 Enfield Southgate byelection.

    In his election address, Portillo announced that he was an alumnus of “Harrow School”. He missed out one word – “Grammar”.
