Labour has faced yet more racism claims following the discrimination against white party members.
Angry Labour members were shocked and appalled by a decision by Labour bosses to charge black and ethnic minority activists £10 less per ticket than white activists to attend an upcoming rally.
Many have accused Labour of racism and said it was further evidence that the party had abandoned the white working class, a feeling that has grown in Swindon where Corybn recently visited to try boost support following a UKIP surge.
A local resident said “Labour has not represented the working class since the 1960s, it is now full of champagne socialists. They are not the party I remember. I am done with Labour after they betrayed us on Brexit!”
Leicestershire Conservative MP Andrew Bridgen added: ‘This is racism. In effect, Labour is levying a tax on the basis of the colour of a person’s skin. It shows their contempt for the white working class.’
A party official said: ‘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.’
Conservative vice-chairman James Cleverly said: ‘Discriminating against people based on the colour of their skin is totally wrong and Mr Corbyn must end this practice now.’
This is the latest episode that has left Labour Leader Jeremy Corybn red faced after fresh calls that anti-Semitism is growing in the party and not being dealt with.
