See Lenny Henry hammer Theresa May’s racist policies while she has to watch

Doreen Delceita Lawrence, Baroness Lawrence (right) and her son Stuart at the Stephen Lawrence memorial service – with Theresa May, who appears desperate to be somewhere else.

She must have been squirming. But it’s not enough.

The video below shows comedian and actor Lenny Henry shredding Theresa May’s record on the Windrush Generation and the institutionalised racism of the current Conservative government.

It is particularly satisfying because he did it at a memorial service to mark the 25th anniversary of Stephen Lawrence’s death – over which This Writer understands institutionalised racism has also cast its shadow.

Mrs May was in the front row. Even her thick skin – let alone her thick head – isn’t so insensitive that she could not feel the derision, the mockery directed at her.

Here’s the clip. After you’ve watched it, I’ll tell you why it isn’t enough.


It isn’t enough because the racist policies that caused so much harm to the Windrush Generation are still in force, are unlikely to be rolled back, and are certainly going to continue harming other people.

Current Home Secretary Amber Rudd has made an exception for the Windrush migrants – that is all.

And she said she would be granting citizenship to them, as if they had not already received that when they moved here in the first place.

Even Philomena Cunk got that right!

(If you don’t believe me, check out Cunk on Britain on the BBC’s iPlayer – episode four.)

And here’s David Lammy with the British Nationality Act 1948, to hammer the point home:

Practically everything Theresa May and Amber Rudd have told you about the Windrush affair has been a lie.

They aren’t sorry about the suffering they forced on these people – they’re sorry they were caught doing it.

And now they are marking time until they can do it again.

That is why neither of these racists has resigned.
