Labour responds to Priti Patel’s refusal to condemn those booing the England Football team

Jo Stevens MP, Labour’s Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport, commenting on Priti Patel’s refusal to condemn those booing the England Football team for ‘taking the knee’, said:

“It beggars belief that a day after the excellent win against Croatia, senior government ministers are still trying to provoke a fight with the England football team.

“Ministers should get on with their jobs and get behind the home nations.”
