Marsha de Cordova comments on Boris Johnson’s senior adviser on ethnic minorities accusing the government of “pursuing politics steeped in division”

Marsha de Cordova MP, Labour’s Shadow Women & Equalities Secretary, commenting on Boris Johnson’s senior adviser on ethnic minorities accusing the Government of “pursuing politics steeped in division,” said:

“This Government has continually denied and dismissed the realities of racism and discrimination and its real life and death impacts on Black, Asian and ethnic minority people across the country, instead choosing to sow the politics of division.

“It is disgraceful that the Equalities Minister has not been held to account for her behaviour last week.

“The Prime Minister must condemn her actions.”
