Baroness Sayeeda Warsi is a puzzle. The Muslim former Minister for Faith and Conservative Party Chairman says she is strongly opposed to sectarianism within Islam, homophobia, antisemitism and extremism of all kinds.
She wants to "continue on our journey towards liberal values."
Yet her opposition to the Muslim woman who has campaigned for a decade to take us on that journey is positively visceral.
"Deeply concerned" was how Warsi greeted the recent appointment of the Commissioner for Counter Extremism, Sara Khan. When pressed, Warsi lets rip in a way that sounds almost personal. Khan is dismissed as a "Home Office construct" — and this from a former Conservative Cabinet minister.
Warsi is referring to a series of anti-Isis rallies in 2014 inspired by Khan's anti-extremism organisation, Inspire.
