Tory racism and sexism: new Conservative MPs are likely to be disproportionately white and male

Racist and sexist: It should be no surprise that the Conservative Party is turning racist and sexist – it is run by Boris Johnson, after all.

It seems that, after jettisoning its moderate wing, the right-wingers who control the Conservative Party are buying into racism and sexism. Read:

New Tory MPs elected to parliament this year are likely to be disproportionately white and male.

Of 55 Conservative candidates for Tory-held or target seats, 96% are white and 70% are men.

This is more than the UK population as a whole, where just 82% are white and 49% are male.

The parliamentary Conserative Party is already the most male-dominated of the major parties.

After the 2017 election, just 21% of its MPs were women – compared to 45% of Labour MPs, 34% of SNP MPs and 33% of Lib Dems.

In contrast, two-thirds of Labour’s candidates for winnable seats are women and the party could be the first to have an equal gender split among its MPs.
