Whoever chose Baroness Warsis study when she was moved to the Foreign Office in the Cabinet reshuffle two months ago must have had a keen sense of history.
And which white Tory could possibly tackle thorny issues, such as the grooming of vulnerable young white girls by Pakistani men in Northern towns like Rochdale, with her courage and credibility?
A small minority of Pakistani, Afghani and Bangladeshi men think Asian women are second-class citizens and white girls are third-class citizens, Warsi told me.
Being brought up before the politically correct brigade got going on harvest festivals, maypoles, Nativity plays, Christmas carols and the Lords Prayer, made me much more sure about my own identity, she said. I didnt feel it was all watered down to the lowest common denominator.
In her first Christmas as Conservative Party chairman, Warsi was horrified to discover the proposed official chairmans card had no mention of Christianity so she binned it and replaced it with a proper traditional card, with Merry Christmas on it.
She added defiantly: It took the confidence of a British Muslim to do that.
She is equally determined to make more significant changes to improve integration, including getting rid of classroom assistants used to help children who cannot speak English.
And Warsi says the proliferation of multilingual forms available for non-English speakers at hospitals, welfare offices and elsewhere merely encourages people not to bother to learn English and hinders their chances of integrating and getting good jobs.

Yeah, good luck with that. Memo dated forever ago: They. HATE You. You are paying for all of their stuff and They. HATE You.
Maypoles and Xmas. Ya sure, minorities can enjoy pagan syncretic holidays like the rest of nominal Christianity.
When is Kwanza this year, anyone know? I’d sure hate to miss that.(sar)
