This petition has been submitted to the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) and the Leader of the Opposition, the Rt. Hon. Jeremy Corbyn MP.
For the attention of the Equality and Human Rights Commission:
Dear Commission Member,
Over the past few weeks we at Britain First have been gathering signatures for a petition concerning the investigation and prosecution of Diane Abbott for her numerous racist and offensive comments.
At the time of writing we have 37,945 signatures, and as Campaigns Officer I have been asked to forward the petition to the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) and to you personally for your consideration.
The link to the petition can be found here - https://www.britainfirst.org/investigate-diane-abbott-for-racism
I hope that you will be able to give this petition your most serious consideration, as such racism and offensive behaviour by someone in a position of public trust and responsibility should never be tolerated in a civilised democracy such as ours.
We have also written to the Leader of the Opposition, the Rt Hon Jeremy Corbyn MP, as the continued presence of Diane Abbott in the elevated position of Shadow Home Secretary will do nothing to enhance Labour's chances in the forthcoming General Election, and may well damage the party's reputation beyond repair.
Please feel free to contact me by email should you have any questions.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Yours sincerely, etc.,
Timothy M Burton - Campaigns Officer, Britain First
We will let you know as soon as we have a response to this petition. In the meantime I would like to thank the 37,945 people who signed the petition before it was submitted.
Please continue to sign our petitions and our complaints drives - every signature counts, and with every signature added we can make sure that those in power realise that we are becoming an ever-increasing force to be reckoned with!
