The important thing was to be seen in photo opportunities with a BME person

Michael Crick points out that Kids Company is a big problem for Labour too, and this may make Commons scrutiny difficult.

Of course, the reason David Cameron was so obsessed with Camila Batmanghelidjh is because she was so obviously "diverse" and BME.  After years of the left screaming "racist" at any party that even mildly questions whether immigration is a good thing, it was probably a relief to have a large woman of color to act as a human shield.  Whether she was competent or even honest was beside the point - the important thing was to be seen in photo opportunities with a BME person.

Perhaps we can now accept that BME people are not intrinsically worthy or deserving or even interesting.
