Battersea MP Marsha de Cordova on Getting this Racist Tory Government Out

This is another video Chunky Mark put up yesterday to encourage people to vote Labour. It’s a snippet from a Labour party rally. The speaker in this clip is the MP for Battersea, Marsha de Cordova. De Cordova is Black, and quite justifiably very angry about the government’s maltreatment of the Windrush people. She opens the video by stating that this week she had to sit across parliament from the racist Tory government, have taken citizenship away from Commonwealth British citizens. There are 50,000 of them. The Tories could restore their citizenship simply by passing a law, but they refuse to do so. This is why she urges people to vote Labour, get them out of office, and Jeremy Corbyn and Labour in.

I’m reblogging this because, although the council elections are over, the issue of the Windrush migrants still hasn’t gone away. Safid Javid has spoken a lot of fair-sounding words about it, but he has made no effort so far to stop the deportations and restore the Windrush generation’s stolen British citizenship, or give compensation and a right to return to those they’ve already deported. In short, he’s done what the Tories always do when they’ve been caught, and started lying.

And Theresa May is up to her neck in this scandal. She was the architect of the legislation making it all possible under Dave Cameron. But we don’t know how far she’s responsible because the Tories voted against the Opposition Day Motion calling for the disclosure of all the papers and documents about it. This in itself shows that, despite her words to the contrary, Tweezer is deeply involved. So much so that it’s embarrassing and dangerous for her and her party.

She’s the racist leader of a racist, persecutory party. Let’s keep the pressure up and get her out.
