Video: Baroness Warsi quits over government's Gaza policy

Lady Warsi, who was the first Muslim to sit in Cabinet, informed Prime Minister David Cameron that she could no longer support the Government's stance on the issue. Lady Warsi's resignation appeared to have caught No 10 by surprise, with Mr Cameron currently out of the country on holiday. It comes amid growing unease among some Conservative MPs that the Government has failed to take a firmer line with Israel over its incursion into Gaza in the face of mounting Palestinian casualties. Lady Warsi has signalled her own concern about what was happening in a series of comments on her Twitter feed in recent days.
