Tories Divided Over 'Mediocre' Ex-Minister Who Claimed She Was Sacked for Being Muslim
Pto be included in the report.— Mark Spencer (@Mark_Spencer) January 22, 2022
These claims relate to a meeting in March 2020. When Ms Ghani raised them she was invited to use the formal CCHQ complaints procedure. She declined to do so.
A former minister who had been plotting against #Boris for some time now suddenly blames her sacking on #Islamophobia when (a) there are many excellent Muslim ministers in the Government and (b) she was nice but unimaginative and mediocre.https://t.co/XUiNVAE7Er— Michael Fabricant 🇬🇧 (@Mike_Fabricant) January 22, 2022
I can genuinely say that I had no idea, or cared, what religion Nus is. She has never made it obvious one way or another. So this all sounds very odd to me.— Michael Fabricant 🇬🇧 (@Mike_Fabricant) January 23, 2022
Anyway, the Chief Whip denies it.
I do know that Nus is no supporter of #Boris so the timing of her remarks is revealing. https://t.co/FbE2NstW8j
I’d always respected @thesundaytimes but they’re running fishing operation #MPs who’ve had #LevellingUp grant ‘suggesting’ it’s given/denied on basis of votes/loyalty. An odd idea in my case as I’ve been notably rebellious over past yr. Poor behaviour. I’d expect better pic.twitter.com/qItlOsLx3r— Craig Mackinlay MP (@cmackinlay) January 22, 2022

Deputy PM Dominic Raab says Nusrat Ghani's claim that she was sacked as a minister because of her Muslim faith are "incredibly serious".#Phillips https://t.co/T9mK8F9oiq pic.twitter.com/O9BKEHGRbb
