No 10 refuses to condemn adviser’s controversial comments

Political Editor

Downing Street has refused to condemn controversial remarks previously made by a new government adviser.

Andrew Sabisky was brought into No. 10 after the Prime Minister’s chief adviser, Dominic Cummings, called for “misfits and weirdos” to apply for jobs.

Mr Sabisky has previously suggested that some black people had lower average IQs than white people and that compulsory contraception could prevent “creating a permanent underclass”.
