A leadership candidate for one of Britain's biggest trade unions has been suspended by Labour and allegedly reported to the police for a hate crime after he called for Priti Patel to be deported.
Heh! He'll probably win now!
The fallout came as huge crowds cheered and applauded yesterday when two Indian men, initially detained by Border Force officials in an immigration van, were eventually released by police following a stand-off with hundreds of protesters.
No-one should really be surprised by this, should they?
Gurinder Singh Josan, a member of Labour's ruling National Executive Committee who is also a Unite member, tweeted: 'Howard showing his true colours?
'I totally disagree on pretty much everything with Priti Patel but this is simply dog whistle racism against a woman of colour. Delete this now!'
Mr Beckett initially refused to back down, arguing that his tweet was 'about society being able to do without anyone who promotes racism'.
Which is clearly what you are doing, by the very standards you've demanded everyone else be hald to...
A Home Office spokesperson said: 'The UK Government is tackling illegal immigration and the harm it causes, often to the most vulnerable people by removing those with no right to be in the UK.
'The operation in Glasgow was conducted in relation to suspected immigration offences and the two Indian nationals complied with officers at all times.
'The UK Government continues to tackle illegal migration in all its forms and our New Plan for Immigration will speed up the removal of those who have entered the UK illegally.'
If only we had a body of people in this country whose job it is to uphold the law! Instead, we have cowards in blue:
A Police Scotland statement said Superintendent Mark Sutherland had decided to release the detained men 'in order to protect the safety, public health and wellbeing of those involved in the detention and subsequent protest'.
We'll see more of this now. When they come for the van transporting murderers and rapists to court, what will you say then, Sutherland?
