“Diversity” is so important to Conservative MP
@TomTugendhat, that he rejects first UK female PM, legendary 3-time election winner Margaret Thatcher on £50 note in favour of a random spy whose Muslim father died when she was young and grew up as a non-Muslim in Paris.
The new £50 could have anyone on it, I’m backing Noor Inayat Khan. She volunteered for SOE, served bravely as an agent in occupied Europe, was eventually captured and murdered. A Muslim, a woman, a hero of WW2. This would celebrate her courage and all SOE https://t.co/AyRA0DmzlD

Noor Inayat Khan was a French national, she lived in France, and arrived in the UK in 1940, escaping the Nazis. To call her a Muslim when her absent father died when she was 12, and she grew up as a non Muslim in Paris and wrote Buddhist story books in disingenuous.
She was clearly very brave and was killed after being tortured by the Gestapo (like many others in the war). To compare her stature to that of Margaret Thatcher is, however, quite ridiculous.
Yet this is the considered view of this Conservative MP.
