LAUDABLE though the stance and resignation of Baroness Warsi over Gaza may be, she must not be in Parliament just to represent the interests of Muslims, be they British or foreign.

I wonder what views she may have expressed on the persecution of Christians in Muslim countries, the latest example being Iraq from where they have had to flee when threatened with death if they did not convert to Islam.

I believe she left before she was asked to go. She will probably join up with the distasteful George Galloway, why, simply because she has her Muslim cause to further.

She shouldn't be in any position of power because nobody elected her. A Pakistani, Muslim woman ticked all the PC boxes and when she failed to win the Dewsbury by-election Cameron made her a Peer. How exactly is THAT democratic???

In fairness she did say some sensible things as well as some drivel IMO but the fact that somebody who has never won any kind of election can get into government sums up all that is wrong in politics and why people think it's rotten to the core and are turning to UKIP or simply not bothering to vote at all.

Distasteful or not, Mr. Galloway stood up for what he believed in, as has stood up for what he believed, as has Baroness Morsi. And if Mr. Whitely really wants to know what she thinks about Christian refugees, I would suggest he contacts her.

The Mr Galloway that says that Bradford is an Israeli free zone. The Lib Dem that represents the other half of Bradford said he would fire rockets into Israel.
Then add Warsi to the mix and you have a trio of Hamas supporting idiots, all paid for by the taxpayer!

"The Mr Galloway that says that Bradford is an Israeli free zone. " cold as Christmas has a tabloid headline mentality. Galloway didn't say "is" or should be, if you read the speech you will see he was advocating a boycott of Israeli goods and services, which would be a good idea in my opinion.
