Gobsmacking. Just gobsmacking.
Baroness Warsi, the Conservative Party chairman, faces damaging new questions over her business dealings.

A Sunday Telegraph investigation has uncovered that she has never registered a controlling stake in a spice manufacturing firm with the House of Lords authorities.

...Lady Warsi’s business partner, Abid Hussain, accompanied her on a ministerial trip to Pakistan where he met leading politicians;

Mr Hussain has been a leading member of Hizb ut Tahrir, the radical Islamic group the Tories promised to ban while in opposition;

It is unclear if Mr Hussain was subjected to security vetting before accompanying the peer to Pakistan;

Lady Warsi has been on 17 foreign trips while in office, even though her role as party chairman is to foster relations with grassroots members.

The Warsi scandal keeps picking up momentum. There's a flurry of Warsi-related articles in the press today.

Warsi claiming £166 per night even though her hotel cost only £75 per night. See here.

Warsi taking Saudi money for foreign junkets with her husband. See here.

More on Warsi's shady business partner here.

Hopefully this will be the end of her.

UPDATE: In her letter to the Prime Minister today, reveals that Abid Hussain, the man associated with Hizb ut-Tahrir, is also her husband's second cousin!

What a disaster. Fortunately, my cousins have an alternative (no, not the b.n.p.).

I hope you're right, and she's on her way to jail. Is that too much to hope for?
