In declaring war on the diversity industry, Attorney General Suella Braverman adds weight to a campaign that has characterised the Tory leadership race.

Her rhetoric — branding diversity consultants the “witch-finders” of today — may go further than the more measured words of Kemi Badenoch, who set out her stall at the beginning of the contest on an anti-woke platform.

Liz Truss, Braverman reminds us, is also committed to scrapping diversity jobs across Whitehall — as Braverman has now done in her own department — and fighting “pernicious identity politics”.
