The strange alliance bringing down Britain’s Prime Minister

Munira Mirza with Prime Minister Boris Johnson: her resignation today could be the beginning of the end for his premiership

This afternoon a possibly fatal blow was landed on the embattled Prime Minister Boris Johnson – a blow from what is in theory his own side.

Oldham-born daughter of Pakistani immigrants Munira Mirza – who has worked for Johnson since his days as Mayor of London and is one of the most influential Asian women in Britain, though little known to the general public until today – resigned as head of the Downing Street Policy Unit, after criticising the PM for having raised questions about Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer’s previous role as Director of Public Prosecutions.

As DPP, Starmer was ultimately responsible for what he accepts was a wrong decision by his staff not to prosecute the notorious paedophile Jimmy Savile.

Mirza (who was active in the Revolutionary Communist Party before her lucrative career as a Tory adviser) argues that the PM was wrong to raise this issue against Starmer.

But the reality is that this is just one move in a much bigger strategy to remove Johnson from office. Mirza’s husband Dougie Smith was a notorious figure in the extremist ‘libertarian’ faction that dominated Tory student politics in the 1980s, and was employed by the sinister tycoon and political fixer David Hart, who recovered from bankruptcy to maintain a country house and a permanent suite at Claridge’s.

After a spell in Sir James Goldsmith’s Referendum Party alongside poker-playing pals from Aspinall’s gambling club, Smith returned to the Tory fold and combined political work with running ‘Fever Parties’, a business that organised ‘swingers parties’ (i.e. orgies) for wealthy Londoners.

Dougie Smith (above in his younger days as leader of a libertarian Tory faction) is often described as ‘far right’ – but if so then it’s a very different sort of ‘right’ from anything you’ll find in H&D!

This proved no obstacle to Smith and his wife Mirza becoming key players in the modern Conservative Party. It seems certain that Mirza’s resignation is designed to benefit the ambitious Rishi Sunak, presently Chancellor of the Exchequer and another child of immigrants. Sunak is a close ally of Dougie Smith, and if Prime Minister would pursue the libertarian, tax-cutting agenda promoted by Smith and his reactionary chums – a disaster for working-class voters who backed Johnson in 2019, but a bonanza for the spivs and ‘greed is good’ brigade who still dominate the Tory Party.

Yet another ambitious chancer and candidate for the premiership – this time two generations away from a much more mysterious alien immigrant background – is Tom Tugendhat, chairman of Westminster’s Foreign Affairs Committee. The fanatical Zionist and warmonger Tugendhat is likely to be backed for the leadership by Times owner Rupert Murdoch and by senior minister and fellow Israel-Firster, Michael Gove.

H&D has long taken a close interest in Mr Tugendhat. As soon as the leadership campaign formally opens we shall publish our dossier on the background of the man who would be Prime Minister.
