So, imagine Chi Onwurah, Diane Abbott, and Shabana Mahmood are standing for election as leader of the Labour partyâ¦â¦ David Milliband doesnât have enough nominations to stand.
How long would a web site âOperation White Voteâ be allowed to openly campaign for ââwhite solidarityâ and appeal for all white MPs to nominate David Milliband to âmake the point that race and gender matterâ?
I am outraged that this web site is not being roundly condemned.
So where is the Twitter outrage? The hysterical Guardian articles? Not a word!
So much for Martin Luther Kingâs speech about judging people by the âcontent of their characterâ â this post is a direct appeal to vote on the basis of colour â not even gender; Margaret Beckett stood against Blair and Prescott in 1994, and so ruined Dianneâs claim to be the first woman nominated.
