Racism by PM and his front bench sees England team boycott event in solidarity with black players
The so-called ‘msm’ reported earlier today that Boris Johnson had cancelled a Downing Street reception for the England team, after the team narrowly lost the European final on Sunday, in a ‘snub’ to the players.
However, it is now emerging that the event was cancelled because England’s players refused to attend, in solidarity with black team-mates because Johnson and his front bench had fanned the flames of racism toward Marcus Rashford and other black players. Several had already spoken out on social media against racist incitement by Johnson, Patel and others and the Tories siding with those who booed players for ‘taking a knee’ before each kick-off.
Boris is cancelled
The Black and Asian Lawyers for Justice group confirmed reports also received by Skwawkbox, saying that players had said they were ‘cancelling’ Johnson:
Yet again, a group of young footballers is providing more opposition than Keir Starmer’s Labour party and highlighting the evils of Tory government.
