On the same day that the Muslim Council of Britain has officially called for an urgent independent inquiry into Islamophobia within the Conservative Party, the former Tory Minister, Baroness Warsi, appeared on Good Morning Britain and revealed never-before heard revelations about the disgusting Islamophobic abuse she suffered at the hands of her own party.

Shockingly, Baroness Warsi even reported that she had been called “the ‘P’ word” in Conservative Party meetings. 

Evolve has reported extensively over the past months about the deepening Islamophobia crisis within the Conservative party – but today, after an official demand by the Muslim Council of Britain for an investigation, the mainstream media have finally, belatedly, acknowledged the problem.

Baroness Warsi has been outspoken about the Islamophobia epidemic within her party, saying in March that there are “weekly occurrences” of Islamophobia within the Conservative Party.

However, today Warsi went much further, exposing the endemic racism crisis at the very heart of the party:

“Some of it was fairly overt […] the “P” word was used in a meeting. Some of it was based on ignorance, some of it was based on a lack of understanding of people like me”

Ms Warsi also revealed during the interview that she has been continuously raising the problem of endemic Islamophobia and racism within the party for ‘two and a half years‘, but has been systematically ignored by the party’s hierarchy.

At a time when the mainstream media have filled the news agenda with reports of anti-Semitism within the Labour party, the Tory party appears to be splitting at the seams with complaints of Islamophobia within their ranks – yet the mainstream media are only paying lip service to what is an equally serious issue.

You can watch Baroness Warsi’s full, and extremely revealing, interview below:

Evolve needs your help more than ever.

We rely on the generosity of our readers to help fund the majority of our work - but we need a little more to make ends meet and enable us to grow.

If we can reach 1,000 regular subscribers, we will become entirely financially sustainable - and we'll also have a little extra so we can build upwards and outwards to make our work have an even bigger impact.

In the last month alone, our work on the Environment Bill has helped force a change in the law for the better. And, since Evolve was founded, our uniquely viral style of journalism has repeatedly put the establishment on the back foot and helped force genuinely positive progression.

But we want to do far more - and we need your help to do it.

The best way you can help us is by becoming a Monthly or Annual subscriber. This kind of regular income allows us to better plan for the future - firstly so we can pay the bills, and then so we can set aside funds and time to work on extra projects.

However, if you can't commit to a regular payment, one-off donations - no matter how small - also make a big difference to us, and we genuinely make the most of every single penny.

So, if you appreciate the work that Evolve does and you want to see us make an even bigger impact on the world, please think about contributing to our work in whatever way you possibly can.
