‘Labour doesn’t seem to understand how it’s happening’: meet the new Black Tories


The Conservatives are keen to boast about the diversity of their top team – but the party has never been seen as a natural home for Black voters. Can a small group of Black Tories change that?
Research by Professor Tim Bale, of Queen Mary University of London, found that 96.4% of members are white (Labour’s membership is 92.1% white).
Professor Bale's book, 'The Conservative Party After Brexit', was also referenced in an article in The Independent discussing Boris Johnson's popularity.
