Swire supports Dominic Raab for PM – why?

Yeah, definitely the man for Swire! Wonder what promises for future advancement Swire has? The Foreign Office – always the Foreign Office! About as far as a politician can get from East Devon!

“…Ready for Raab:

Payne also hears Dominic Raab, a former Brexit secretary, is being helped in his leadership ambitions by Hugo Swire, a former Foreign Office minister, and several alumni from the 2016 Vote Leave campaign.”

Dominic Raab … the man who didn’t realise Dover was a major port:

The man who paid a female ex-employee £20,000 and had her sign a gagging clause.

Who said immigrants caused house price rises.

Who wrote “”Once they enter the workplace, the British are among the worst idlers in the world”.

One thought on “Swire supports Dominic Raab for PM – why?

  1. Strange, isn’t it?
    .
    When he was housing minister, he did indeed claim that “migration pushed up house prices” – a claim which was later dismissed:

    .
    One wonders, then, to what extent the migration of his father from Czechoslovakia “pushed up house prices”…
    .
    It was between 1938 and 1939 when “the British Schindler” evacuated hundreds of Jewish children from Prague:

    .
    And as part of this “Kindertransport”, it was one of these children who was the father of the former Brexit minister:

    .
    The “frontrunner to be PM” is in fact very proud of his roots and his “determination to fight racism”:

    .
    But, then Raab is not the first politician of foreign extraction who would limit foreigners’ entry:

    .
    “It’s those whose families have arrived … within the last generation or two who are often the keenest to slam the door shut on those coming today.”

    What is even stranger still is that Dominic Raab’s wife is also not British-born:
