The Truth about Goats
In what should have been a tricky question about racism, the Leader of the House of Commons adroitly sidefooted the issue by reclassifying British Muslims as foreign. By saying Islamophobia is only an issue for the Foreign office, Mrs Leadsom cunningly solved the Tory’s PR problem and the housing shortage in Bradford.
In a day that saw Amber Rudd call the Shadow Home Secretary ‘coloured’ and the Northern Irish secretary said shooting Irish people was not a crime, MPs were apprehensive that Mrs Leadsom would save their halal bacon. Fortunately, the Conservative Party is the party of diversity- if by that you mean effectively dividing people, by hue.
Mrs Leadsom stopped short of saying that Muslims were animals by saying it was task for the Ministry of Food. Yet she did imply that the Ministry for Brexit might know a thing or to about ejecting unwelcome minorities; but more along the lines of the Europeans getting rid of us.
A Foreign Office spokeswoman said: ‘Islamophobia is not our issue. Although admittedly we have been dropping a sh$t load of bombs on Muslim people recently. So, yeah, maybe it is more our thing’.
