Did Tory ‘politics steeped in division’ force Johnson’s top black advisor to quit?

‘Politics steeped in division’: Samuel Kasumu.

Samuel Kasumu, the Tory government’s top advisor on ethnic minorities, has finally quit – over a controversial report that claims there’s no institutional racism in the UK.

Mr Kasumu is known to have had deep concerns about government policy on race; he submitted his resignation in February, while working to promote the Covid-19 vaccination programme among minority ethnic groups.

At the time, he accused the Tory government of promoting “a politics steeped in division”.

He agreed to remain only after senior government figures like Nadhim Zahawi lobbied him to stay on.

It seems the racism report was the last straw.

Sadly we have no comment from Mr Kasumu himself explaining the reasoning behind his decision.

Downing Street has leapt in to “manage” the resignation with a claim that he had been planning to leave the government in May anyway.

That may be true, but: It isn’t May now. It’s April. Therefore he has left early. And right after publication of a report whitewashing the government’s record on racism – a record he has very clearly criticised in the past.

In This Writer’s opinion, there’s only one conclusion to draw:

The Tories’ top black advisor quit because he knows his government is racist and he can’t stand the hypocrisy any more.

Even the Tory-supporting BBC seems to agree:

Samuel Kasumu has been unhappy with the government’s stance on race for some time, sources say.

    I have to ask what the hell was he thinking working with them anyhow?

    Deep distrust and yet you still lent them your name and credibility on race relations a bunch of scumbags that hates anyone who is not rich and white like them!

    I am glad he has seen the light but let this be a lesson to others the money doesn’t make up for working with scum and working with them might affect your credibility later.
