So the Conservatives gave us the first woman Prime Minister

And the first female Muslim cabinet minister

And what did Nu Labour give us?

The first one-eyed Scottish tw*t to be PM.

:blink:

Blimey.

Theresa May's a muslim?

She is barely a woman. Not like her namesake ;)

Game Over thinks being Chairman of the Tory Party is an office of state in the British Government. Either our democracy really is dead or he doesn't know much about politics.

She was also the shadow minister for community cohesion.

I await your apology

Shadow minister is not an office of state - what role has Baroness Warsi been appointed to?

2/7/07 - 11/5/10. Look at the date today.

Eric Pickles, the former Party Chairman, is the Minister for Communities or whatever it is.

Chairman of the Conservative Party which is a cabinet position (as Game_Over stated).

'Barness Warsi becomes new Conservative Party chairman':

Baroness Warsi has been named as chairman of the Conservative Party, as party leader David Cameron continues to choose members of his new government.

She replaces Eric Pickles, who becomes communities secretary.

Baroness Warsi, who was shadow minister for community cohesion when the Tories were in opposition, is the first Muslim woman to serve in a British cabinet.

A former solicitor, she was a vice-chairman of the Conservative Party from 2005 to 2007.

Well I am only quoting the BBC

If you don't like it perhaps you should complain to them.

I think Warsi is a very impressive politician

I didn't realise my post would cause a left-wing backlash

:blink:

Still, whatever the BBC says..... Chairman of the Conservative party is not a cabinet position. They are limited by law to a certain number (23 I think) and are government, not party political, roles.

Yours,

TBH I am getting pretty bored with people splitting hairs to try and prove they are 'right'

From the BBC Website

Baroness Sayeeda Warsi is the first Muslim woman to serve in a British cabinet.

She was also the first Muslim woman to sit on the front bench of a British political party in July 2007 at the age of 36.

Straight-talking and combative - she describes herself as a "northern, working-class-roots mum" - she gave up her job as a solicitor in 2004 to stand for Parliament in her home town of Dewsbury, West Yorkshire, losing out to Labour's Shahid Malik.

She was also a special adviser on community relations to then Tory leader Michael Howard before becoming the party's vice-chairman. She succeeds Eric Pickles in her new role.

Ms Warsi - who is married with a daughter - says her admiration for Conservative principles is inspired by her father, who went from working in a mill to running a £2m-a-year bed-manufacturing firm.

She also expected to take on a junior ministerial role.
