Did Cameron force Warsi to withdraw from Doha veil debate?

Muslim cabinet minister Baroness Warsi pulled out of defending the burqa at an international TV debate because of “government pressure”, it was claimed today. The Tory party co-chairman had been due to appear in front of a global TV audience of 350 million people opposing the motion that “France is right to ban the face veil“. However, a Tory party source said that Baroness Warsi had pulled out for diary commitments.
