Boris Johnson has declared war on woke and is taking on battles over historical statues and race to shore up the Tory base, it was claimed today.
Downing Street advisers are said to be keen for the PM to take high-profile stands on cultural issues, focusing on improving life chances rather than bowing to pressure from the Left.
The choice of Munira Mirza, the head Mr Johnsons policy unit, to set up the new race commission appears to be a sign of the governments approach.
Supporters say she is an advocate of data-driven policies, but campaigners and Labour MPs say she is a denier of institutional racism and should not be playing a key role in the response to the BLM protests.
They also raised concerns over her alleged decision to give a role to Trevor Phillips, the former head of the Equalities and Human Rights Commission, who has angered some with past comments on British Asian communities.

It is not racism, it is the failure of thug culture which is the problem.
I almost don’t want to post this clip because I don’t want to get the Queen’s Guard in trouble, but this is how I feel about the idiots that want to mock and tear down western civilization:
Sound strategy. Any adviser that recommends a conservative try to appease the left should be fired instantly. They are left wing plants. The left doesn't want to coexist with the right, they want to destroy the right utterly. They will take your offered olive branch and use it to beat you down even more.
I'm glad Johnson isn't falling for their trap.
We all need to be doing something, because the left sure as hell are.
We hate Christians and Christianity. Even the best of them must be considered our worst enemies. They teach love of ones neighbor and mercy, which is against our principles. Christian love is an impediment to the development of the revolution. Down with love of our neighborwhat we want is hatred; we must know how to hate. Only then shall we conquer the universe.The left has been threatening the annihilation of the right for over 1½ centuries. This has been the goal no matter what form the left takes (communism, national socialism etc.) When The Naked Communist stated that the goal of Marx and Marxism was to create a race of human beings conditioned to think like criminals, that was no joke.

What is going to happen when the mob suddenly realizes that Drake and Hawkins, ship captains who helped defeat a Spanish Invasion(THE ARMADA) back in 1588, got their start as slavers.
Will their good, of saving England from Spanish rule, outweigh the slavery issues?
Would the MOB prefer to be ruled by Spain, who also were slavers.
UKIP, For Britain, or Patriotic Alternative instead of mushy peas Tories. If the Tories lose the Bulldogs, then they are toast.
Curious thing, the left uses "love of neighbor" to promote second place for Christians.
In the USSR, work is a duty and a matter of honor for every able-bodied citizen, in accordance with the principle: He who does not work, neither shall he eat.Twisting scripture is an old tactic of communists. As shown above, Article 12 of the 1936 USSR constitution has a twisted version of 2 Thessalonians 3:10.
The principle applied in the USSR is that of socialism: From each according to his ability; to each according to his work.
