UK government adviser quits over race comments

He also said in a 2014 web post that one way to stop unplanned pregnancies "creating a permanent underclass" was to force people to use contraception.

Sabisky said he was in the middle of a "giant character assassination" and was stepping down because he did not want to be a distraction.
