Cabinet Minister admits mistakes were made in sacking of Roger Scruton

A CABINET Minister last night admitted mistakes in the sacking of housing tsar Sir Roger Scruton.

Communities Secretary James Brokenshire said: “We could have done things differently – that is something I do acknowledge.

“I’m very saddened by the whole situation as to his this occurred.”

Sir Roger was booted out as a housing adviser on the Building Better, Building Beautiful Commission after an incendiary report claimed he had been anti-Semitic and racist.

Supporters last week claimed he had been wrongly dismissed when a full transcript of the interview with New Statesman emerged.

Mr Brokenshire – who never contacted Sir Roger before the sacking earlier this month – told LBC he had a “huge amount of respect” for him.
