Theresa May is pushing a line that she is fighting racism while parroting Chuka's allegation that the Labour Party is 'institutionally racist'.

Let's have a look at Theresa May's antiracism credentials?

(Please feel free to add any I miss 😊) ..
1. 'Hostile environment' - created when May was Home Secretary. This included 'go home' vans and was the precursor to the 'Windrush scandal'
2. Windrush - not only have people died, not only does her Govt have no idea how many people have been impacted, not only did it create grave distress and fear amongst British citizens who have been here longer than most of us have been alive .. she took no responsibility
3. Islamophobia in the Conservative Party

The Muslim Council of Britain, reps of Mosques and community groups and Tory members are all insisting that her Party has an Islamophobia issue. Baroness Warsi says this is daily. May STILL refuses to hold an investigation
4. Donald Trump - Theresa May has held hands twice with Donald Trump. She invited him for a state visit within days of his inauguration. Donald Trump is an Islamophobe and a racist. He pursues Islamophobic policies. He retweeted Britain First. He has targeted Mexican children
5. Boris Johnson

May's former Foreign Secretary has a hideous history of racist metaphors and language. Latterly he has inflamed Islamophobia by targeting what women wear.

Boris Johnson was able to resign from a job he should have been sacked from many times
6. Support of Islamophobic and AntiSemitic leaders

If you don't know how sinister Orban is, Google him. Tory MEPs were whipped (forced to vote) to support his Government

7. Failure to censure Tory MPs / support of who have indulged in racism and Islamophobia

- Andrew Rosindell
- Bob Blackman
- Anne Marie Morris (Whip restored)
- Boris Johnson as above
- Nadine Dorries
8. Alignment with the DUP

A far right Party that regularly stokes sectarianism and anti Catholic hatred in Northern Ireland and beyond
9. Close relationship including consistently briefing via the back door - The Sun and The Daily Mail. Their Editors and their Owners.

These publications have been consistently forced to apologise to British Muslims for publishing hateful lies about them. They still do it.
