It is one of the worst researched, insulting, racist pieces of work I have ever read. I cannot believe that she makes a living from this, or that the Indi actually pay her for this drivel.
I was going ti Fisk the article but there was just so much to tear apart I would have been up all night. There are a few points that I would like to address, Ms Alibhai-Brown writes:
"Almost more depressing is the sight of black and Asian Britons following the wind blowing the Tories to victory. Boris has recruited Afro Caribbean "leaders" who believe in physical chastisement and smart young Asians who deny the existence of racism and want an end to political correctness. The more old-fashioned Uncle Toms and their female equivalents are now expediently making themselves known to the Tories and right-wing think tanks."
The truth is that I and the other black and Asian Britons now working with Boris were part of the process and have been working with other Conservatives whether black, white, male, female, straight, gay etc. etc. for years to get where we are now. That Yasmin feels that we should be limited in our political options makes me sick.
She calls us authoritarian while her side (as she calls it) floods the streets with CCTV cameras, tries to bring in ID cards and has pushed for 90 days detention without charge.
YAB is angry at the Left for being crap, but flinging insults at black and Asian Tories won't make it any better.
