Woodcock described by BLM spokesperson as “hand-picked servant of a prime minister who described black people using vile racist language that thankfully most people left behind in the 1950s”
Boris Johnson has told John Woodcock, the former Labour MP turned Tory-made peer who endorsed Johnson and the Tories before the 2019 general election, to investigate ‘far-left infiltration’ of movements such as Black Lives Matter and Extinction Rebellion.
Woodcock quit Labour in 2018 before an investigation into ‘sex pest’ allegations could be concluded, but this has not been mentioned in ‘mainstream’ reports on Woodcock’s new project.
After his resignation, Woodcock tweeted attacking Corbyn’s Labour as ‘a gaslighting racist regime’ [sic]. Boris Johnson has used a string of racist terms to describe black and Muslim people.
A spokesperson for the Black Lives Matter movement described Woodcock as the:
hand-picked servant of a prime minister who described black people using vile racist language that thankfully most people left behind in the 1950s
The move comes shortly after another Labour-quitter-turned-Tory-made-peer, John Mann, launched a smear campaign against left-wing news sites. Mann was interviewed by police in a ‘hate-incident’ investigation after publishing a pamphlet that included being a Gypsy Traveller in a list of anti-social behaviours. This did not prevent him being made Johnson’s ‘antisemitism Tsar’.
