  • There's absolutely no need to remove Mohammed from the UK. His case can easily be dealt with here - a move which would keep his family together and take the pressure off Bulgaria. This would require the Home Office to show empathy and solidarity. Unfortunately, it seems to be lacking both. You can help by signing this petition on the Change.org asking Amber Rudd to process his case in the UK: https://goo.gl/XM5bqQ

  • My letter in today's The Guardian, on why Theresa May should end Government cuts to equalities bodies if she is serious about tackling race equality: "The new audit on race equality rings alarm bells – and not only because of the shocking disparities on which it shines a light. We should also be extremely concerned about the government’s failure to invest in the UK’s equality bodies. The Equality and Human Rights Commission, for example, exists to tackle discrimination and promote equality. However, its budget has been cut by 75% over the past decade, with still more to come. How can we expect it to do its job effectively, while its funding is aggressively stripped away? The government should also be proactive in supporting the many brilliant grassroots organisations around the UK that work tirelessly to inform people of their rights, and help change attitudes. I support the prime minister’s decision to highlight the glaring inequalities in our communities. However, talk is cheap. If she wants to see change, she will need to make the most of the tools at her disposal – resourcing and empowering the groups that exist to help, but have been starved of the funding to do so. Jean Lambert MEP Green, London"

  • If the Prime Minister was serious about tackling racial inequality, she would empower bodies such as the Equality and Human Rights Commission to do their jobs - not cut their funding. See my letter in The Guardian today: https://goo.gl/xqvsZp 👇
