Ian Lavery’s Racism Blind Spot

Last night Labour Party Chair Ian Lavery told a jittery meeting of the PLP that the party could not be “institutionally anti-Semitic” because he himself would never be a member of a racist party.

But is Mr Lavery really best equipped to spot racism when it’s staring him in the face? What did he think about racism when he posed for this grinning photo with his son Ian Lavery Jr. in blackface? Maybe he thought it was just a funny tinge..?

Boris responds to Tusk…

“I don’t want a No Deal Brexit but I say to our EU friends if they don’t want No Deal they have got to get rid of the backstop from treaty. If Donald Tusk doesn’t want to go down in history as Mr No Deal Brexit then I hope this point will be borne in mind by him too.”
