The Tories have defeated a Labour motion for the release of all documents and communications concerning policies and actions affecting the UK’s Windrush citizens, by 316 votes to 221.
Theresa May whipped her party to participate in a vote on a Labour motion – revealing how much she has to hide and how badly she wants it hidden, because the Tories usual policy has been to run away from votes on Labour motions.
The continued opacity and secrecy is a slap in the face for the thousands of our citizens whose lives have been knowingly blighted by the Tories’ racist ‘hostile environment’ policies.
The details of the ‘division’ have not yet been published, but it appears that not a single Tory had the integrity or sufficient concern for the abused Windrush generation to take a stand and vote for transparency.
The fundamental heartlessness and corruption of this government is now on full display – less than twelve hours before polls open for tomorrow’s local elections.
If you have a vote tomorrow, make them pay.
