The British newspaper ‘Times’ said Sajid Javid, the British interior minister nominated for prime minister, had warned in an attack on Boris Johnson that he would choose a wrong leader of the Conservative Party that could deepen social divisions in order to win the general election.
The newspaper pointed out that Javid, who poses as a candidate for leadership is better than reflects modern Britain and more than can unite, said on Thursday that the increase in hate crimes almost made society more divided.
During an event organized by the British Future Research Center, Javid called on his fellow candidates not to raise these divisions. He said some politicians have decided that the only way they can get the votes is to exploit and exaggerate divisions and make angry people vote for him and the belief that this is the worst thing to do.
Javid described his party and the country as being at a crossroads and said he believed there were candidates who exploit divisions to win the general election, which he totally rejected.
Some said the remarks were aimed at candidates such as Johnson, who is pursuing an unequal policy on the brexit. “We need to understand more about why people vote in this direction, that Brexit is properly achieved not only by leaving the EU but also by dealing with some of these frustrations”, Javid said.
