We have had the usual leftists whingers pick apart the report into racism in this country and commissioned by the UK Government stating they do not accept it. Bit like the remainers really because it didn’t go their way so they refuse to accept it, and how ungracious and childish as some of the best people in this country have produced this report and of which 90% of the board were from ethnic backgrounds…so are the whinging left saying these people are racist? It is always the same with these people because if it is not to their narrative…then they refuse to see that there could be another side. How blinkered are these people and to think they are in politics…..that is the scariest of thoughts. Time to drain another swamp I think….the leftist one.
I have picked out the recommendations to publish and will be writing up my own thoughts on this, but it actually reads really well and no wonder the Left hate it. It picks apart their victim mentality and has put the stoppers on them howling with the hue and cry that we are a racist country, when the majority know we are not but that is not what the likes of Sadiq Khan, Diane Abbott, Sir Keir knee bending Starmer and the usual bandwagon jumping MPs politicians wanted as they cannot shout it from the rooftops….
Its almost like snot nosed kids in the playground saying if you don’t do it my way then you cannot play because its my rules….. When are they ever going to stand up for this country instead of hating the very place that has given them so much opportunity….it is shameful that any of these whingers are in the positions they are in and not because of their colour but because they hate anything British and that is shameful.
Anyway….here are the recommendations..
Recommendation 1: Challenge racist and discriminatory actions,
Fund the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) to use its compliance, enforcement, and litigation powers to challenge policies or practices that either cause significant and unjust racial disadvantage or arise from racial discrimination.

Full Recommendations Led by evidence, the Commission has put forward 24 recommendations that will improve the lives and experiences of individuals and communities across the UK.
The Commission recognises that health, education, training and skills, justice and policing are reserved matters for the Devolved Administrations.
Any action taken to implement them will, therefore, need to be mindful of these considerations to this report and its recommendations will require discussion with devolved administrations.
These recommendations work to forward 4 overarching aims:
• to build trust between different communities and the institutions that serve them
• to promote greater fairness to improve opportunities and outcomes for individuals and communities
• to create agency so individuals can take greater control of the decisions that impact their lives
• to achieve genuine inclusivity to ensure all groups feel a part of UK society.
