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


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.”
