Windrush: Government sued over recommendation rejections | The Canary

The Empire Windrush brought many people to the UK to help rebuild the country after World War II. If it had still been in service a few years ago, the Tories would have been trying to use it to deport them all again.

The Tory government simply won’t do right by the victims of the Windrush scandal:

On 6 April, Britain’s government faced legal action by campaigners over its refusal to accept key recommendations made by an inquiry into the Windrush scandal, which affected thousands of Black post-war immigrants.

Suella Braverman in January refused to accept three of the changes previously promised by the Conservative government.

The … independent inquiry issued 30 recommendations, which Braverman’s predecessor agreed to adopt in full.

However, Braverman rejected more powers for Britain’s independent chief inspector of borders. She also refused a commissioner to safeguard migrants’ interests, and the holding of reconciliation events.

The group Black Equity Organisation, created last year to campaign for the civil rights of Black Britons, said it was seeking a judicial review of the home secretary’s decision.

There was no immediate comment from [the Home Office] as to the legal action.

    Astounding not – fascist tories acting as if they are above the law and can ignore independent Inquiries into their racist and xenophobic demonisation of Black Post-War Migrants!!

    Fascist tories and their racist/xenophobic puppet Suella Braverman won’t be satisfied until they have deported all Black Post-War migrants. So beware Braverman because you too will be on the fascist tories’ list for deportation!
