Tories harm children and they harm the rights of children. Your kids aren’t safe under Tory rule.

If you know anyone who voted Tory last month – or who didn’t vote at all, tell them: well done.

Be as sarcastic as you like.

Tell them that, under the Tories, the UK has become one of the worst-performing countries in the entire world in the matter of improving children’s rights.

Tell them that, thanks to their vote – or lack of it, the UK’s government will continue to fail younger generations.

And tell them that discrimination against children on racial or religious grounds has been incorporated into the structure of UK society under the Conservatives.

Ask them whether they consider themselves to be racists and, if not, why they support a racist administration.

And if they say they don’t, remind them that prime minister Boris Johnson is a known racist.

Point them to the anti-Semitism in his novel if they want proof beyond his Islamophobic comments and other recent outbursts.

The UK has been accused of employing “inadequate” provision for children’s rights protection after it fell dramatically in global rankings for child rights within a year, from 11th to 156th.

Serious concerns have been raised about structural discrimination in the UK, including Muslim children facing increased discrimination following recent anti-terrorism measures, and a rise in discrimination against gypsy and refugee children in recent years.

The UK now ranks among the bottom 10 global performers in the arena of improving rights of the child, after it achieved the lowest-possible score across all six available indicators in the domain of Child Rights Environment (CRE), according to the KidsRights Index 2017.

Portugal is this year’s global frontrunner.
