Not a racist: Emma Dent Coad.

Yes, Guido Fawkes’ Blog has invented another accusation against a Labour MP to hide the crassness of the Conservative Party.

You can read Emma Dent-Coad’s article from 2010 – and make up your own mind about it – here.

Kensington, Chelsea and Fulham Conservatives (KCFC) have rightly been the target of scorn and contempt for sending a questionnaire to residents asking whether they thought the Grenfell Tower tragedy was still important.

And on the very same day, the Establishment ‘happens’ to ‘discover’ a supposed racism ‘scandal’ about Ms Dent-Coad.

KCFC sent a form to locals, in which their Grenfell question – alongside issues such as bin collections and recycling – displayed a callousness that shocked even veteran Tory-watchers who thought nothing could surprise them:

Handily for the Tories, the right-wing Fawkes blog came up with a seven-year-old article by then-councillor Emma Dent-Coad and blared about a ‘vicious 2010 blog post that really is dripping venom and hate‘ toward a black Tory parliamentary candidate, claiming that she called him a ‘token ghetto boy’.

Except the article didn’t.

Ms Dent-Coad actually criticises Shaun Bailey’s use of the word ‘ghetto’ about the Golborne area from which he originates, pointing out that it has been called an exemplary diverse community – and wonders where, given that he was reported to be taking riding lessons so he could go fox-hunting, Mr Bailey would be able to fit in.

Which Fawkes claimed was a statement that he ‘will never’ fit in, which is rather different.
