The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) is investigating a Labour Party event, featuring Corbyn, that planned to charge white people more to attend.
The party drew widespread criticism after it was revealed white party members would be charged £10 extra.
Leicestershire Police have received complaints about the issue, but told local media they wouldn’t be investigating and “would advise anyone who feels that the Equality Act may have been breached to contact the EHRC”.
However, the EHRC has now announced that it is investigating the situation after a complaint was made that Labour has breached equality law; rather awkward for the party of virtue signalling. The law very clearly states you cannot discriminate against someone because of the colour of their skin.
Andrew Bridgen, the MP for North West Leicestershire wrote to the Commission, saying: “I believe this is not only discriminatory and illegal it’s also extremely divisive — setting communities against each other and opening a Pandora’s box for extremists at both ends and Labour must refund their illegal racial surcharge.”
The chief executive of the EHRC, Rebecca Hilsenrath, told Brigden: “The legal team is considering whether or not to use one of our statutory powers in relation to enforcement of the Equality Act.”
A Labour spokesman told the paper: “The basic price of a conference pass is the same for all members but, at the request of our East Midlands Regional Board, the party will subsidise part of the cost of this year’s conference pass for BAME members to encourage attendance and improve representation.”
