⁦The frightening state of Brexit Britain:

“It can’t be right that one of the consequences of me being the mayor of London & a Muslim in public life is that I have police protection. Is that the price you should have to pay?” ⁦@SadiqKhan

Sadiq Khan never received an apology from the dog-whistle campaign run by @ZacGoldsmith, but credit to Khan for saying publicly now what many of us have said since. It wasn’t just Goldsmith. The racism came from the very highest levels.
I’ll add: We shouldn’t be going backwards as a society. We shouldn’t be scared for our elderly parents or our children on the streets because of race. We shouldn’t be shy about our rich identities, to speak other languages on our streets.

Language matters. In politics even more.
Sadiq Khan hasn’t spoken out about racism much, despite what we now see is a very extreme torrent of racist threats towards him.

It is important that he does so, because we have to stop hiding behind the fake reassurances of Brexit Britain that all is well.

All is not well.
