Answer to my PQ reveals Government failed to act in response to 2014 warning - yet more evidence that Theresa May as Home Secretary chose to explicitly ignore recommendations that could have prevented some of the damage of #Windrush scandal from happening
I loved living here, but I’ve lost faith in this country.
Repeated warnings about the Windrush scandal were made to the government year after year - but they still failed to take action. A damning indictment of the hostile environment that they continue to foster..
@GhostProtocolPF By representing feckless knife wielding 2nd generation #windrush drug dealing victims of faux white supremacists?.
My @tedxlondon talk, on the need to learn from our past to tackle racial inequalities today, reflecting on the #windrush injustice will soon be available. 2 related pieces, on the need to listen to BME ppl abt the present & the past.
@BrandonLewis @sajidjavid Islamophobia Windrush Vote Leave pairing. Get your own house in order you hypocrites.
@Simon_Vessey Much of the media/political class also aghast at the idea that the Windrush scandal - dozens of actual deportations - might be an example of institutional racism. Amber Rudd a commendable liberal. Etc. Etc..
Repeated formal warnings on #Windrush made to the Foreign Office and the Home Office for years Those affected still struggling financially..

Government received repeated warnings over several years but failed to take action..
the government has admitted in a response to a parliamentary question that it took no action in response to a detailed 2014 warning, in a research paper about the looming problem.
This is shocking. A deliberately hostile policy of undermining and dehumanising people whose only offence was having the misfortune to have been brought to the UK as small children then made a life here. No more excuses, UK. Get it sorted. NOW. #Windrush.
Theresa May who was responsible for a hostile and racist regime in the Home Office has the audacity to call Corbyn a racist #Windrush.
Appalling (sadly predictably)!! depth of Home Office failures on Windrush.
@NibblesScratch —- nobody cares ..... if you want to see bigotry then here it is ...... Revealed: depth of Home Office failures on Windrush.
“Responsibility for the Windrush scandal, and the countless lives it has ruined, falls squarely on the shoulders of our prime minister – and she must be held to account for this act of great betrayal.”.
While they go on about antisemitism there are still Windrush pensioners stranded abroad or without services.
Fascinating archive and resources on how the BBC covered race and immigration post-Windrush @DavidjHendy Windrush rarely mentioned in the quarter-century after 1948 with the history coming to mainstream attention with the 50th anniversary series in 1998.
Repeated warnings about the developing #Windrush scandal were made over the course of several years to both the Foreign Office and the Home Office but no action was taken. #.
Despite the success of my petition which forced the government to admit that there was system failure the basic demands back in April have not been fully addressed still.
Revealed: depth of Home Office failures on Windrush Less we forget. The incompetence and depravity of our Government..
To quote @ppvernon “Sadly, the public have learned more about Windrush during the month of April 2018 than in the previous 50 years.” A national day will forever remember the contribution of the #WindrushGeneration. Well done Patrick!.
@NHASolent Answer 2: In England, just as new aspects of the #Windrush scandal come to light.
@10DowningStreet @theresa_may Can you please explain why you treated UK citizens in this manner? You were warned repeatedly and did nothing. Is it mot time to resign.
How the government ignored a series of official warnings on Windrush over many years. More great work by @ameliagentleman that makes the faux surprise with which the crisis was greeted by the govt earlier this year all the more astounding..
‘He was going out of his mind’: Mother of Windrush man who died after months of immigration problems demands justice.
