Professor Philip Cowley and Professor Tim Bale, Black and ethnic minority voters explain why they won’t back Theresa May

Published:

Black and ethnic minority voters say the Conservative party are only for “rich, white people”, according to a London-based focus group from QMUL’s Mile End Institute, HuffPost UK, and Edelman. Professor Tim Bale said: “What really stands out - and it goes all the way back to the Tories in the sixties and seventies being tough on immigration but lukewarm on anti-discrimination - is that the Conservatives, even when Labour’s seen as a shambles, still can’t pass the sniff test with so many ethnic minority voters.”
