“… people in the Windrush community feel this scandal reflects something about the way this government regards the entire Black community.
People on the Tory benches are saying ‘rubbish’ – My parents, brothers, sisters & cousins largely worked in the NHS, in factories and London Transport.
I always remember my uncle saying with pride that he was proud to have never missed a day of work.
This is a generation with unparallelled commitment to this country, unparallelled pride in being British, unparallelled commitment to hard work,
it is shameful that this government has treated the windrush generation in this way.”
