Baroness Warsi has made a short statement following her resignation from the Foreign Office, claiming that she resigned because the Government's "morally indefensible" policy on Gaza "wasn't moving".
Over the last four weeks I have done everything I can both at formal meetings and informal meetings trying to convince my colleagues that our current policy on Gaza is morally indefensible, that it's not in British interests and that it will have consequences for us, both internationally and here at home.
In the end I felt the Government's position wasn't moving and I had to, on a point of principle, resign.
