ADDRESSED TO: THE EQUALITY & HUMAN RIGHTS COMMISSION (EHRC)

AND: JEREMY CORBYN MP (LEADER OF THE LABOUR PARTY)

To whom it may concern,

We consider that Diane Abbott - currently the Shadow Home Secretary - is not only unfit for office because of her consistently racist views and remarks towards British and white people over time, but should also be investigated by the Equality & Human Rights Commission (EHRC) and prosecuted for those remarks in the criminal courts.

Among her numerous racist remarks are the following:

'Brexit was triggered by stupid racists who did not like seeing people who look "foreign" on their streets' (2017)

'London shouldn't have another white middle-aged mayor' (2015)

'Blonde, blue-eyed Finnish girls are unsuitable as nurses - they have never met a black person before' (1996)

'White people love playing "divide and rule" - we should not play their game' (2012)

'White people in western societies have benefited from their histories of colonial exploitation' (2012)

'West Indian mums will go to the wall for their children' (2010) - implying that mothers of other races would not.

Given that the Labour Party is already under investigation by the EHRC for anti-Semitism, it is imperative that action is taken.

We, the undersigned, not only call for her sacking (or resignation) from her current position as Shadow Home Secretary, but we demand that she is referred to the police and the EHRC and investigated for racism:
