Black History Month (20 Oct 2020)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...on the streets, begging and looking for a meal from a church, a synagogue or a mosque in order just to get by. Let us have a sense of reality about what modern Britain is like, and the degree of racism that is still there, sadly, in our society—and the way in which the far right is organising to try to make the situation worse. We should be full of admiration for those in the black...

Covert Human Intelligence Sources (Criminal Conduct) Bill: Clause 1 - Authorisation of criminal conduct (15 Oct 2020)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...been infiltrated in some way by the police at some point over the past few years. Those of us who have spent our lives campaigning for social justice and environmental sustainability, and against racism in any form, often wonder why there is apparently much less concern about, much less involvement with and much less attention paid to far-right racist organisations than to other people...

Friend the Member for Brent Central (Dawn Butler), who is my great friend, on securing this debate and on the incredible work that she has done—not just today, but over many years—to expose racism, inequality and injustice in our society, and to persuade us that we should all learn and teach history much better in this country in order to conquer the inequalities and injustices...

Prime Minister: Engagements (12 Feb 2020)

Jeremy Corbyn: help people. Our thoughts are also with those who suffer from the coronavirus and with the Chinese community in this country, who are, I am sorry to say, facing increasingly alarming levels of racism within our country. As this virus spreads, I also thank public health workers who are helping those affected and raising awareness of the danger of the virus. Does the Prime Minister think...

It is a time for us all to reflect on the horrors of the past and to remind ourselves of the evils of Nazism, genocide, antisemitism and, indeed, all forms of racism, which we must always be implacably determined to root out wherever it appears. This Saturday, hundreds of millions of people will be celebrating Chinese new year around the world, and I...

Prime Minister's Update (25 Sep 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. Thank you for what you have just said—and the sincerity with which you said it—about the threats made to Members of Parliament; the abuse, racism and violence happening in our communities; and the unfortunate messages that come from the language used, which is then repeated on the streets when people threaten public representatives and others with...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (17 Jul 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: This party was the first to introduce anti-racist legislation into law in Britain. This party totally opposes racism in any form whatsoever. Antisemitism has no place in our society, no place in any of our parties and no place in any of our dialogues. Neither does any other form of racism. Some 60% of Tory party members think Islam is a threat to western civilisation. The Prime Minister has...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (17 Jul 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: This party opposes racism in any form whatsoever in our society. And coming from a Prime Minister who encouraged the hostile environment, sent “go home” vans around London, and deported British citizens, which she has now had to compensate them for, I think that she might look to her own party and her own Government’s record as well. The issue of climate change is obviously crucial, and...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (10 Jul 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: My party is totally committed to eliminating racism in any form and antisemitism in any form. While the Prime Minister is about the lecturing, how about the investigation into Islamophobia in her party? [Interruption.]

Jeremy Corbyn: deciding the way forward on implementing the result of the referendum but, in delivering the result, we have to unite people so as not to create further divisions, stoke xenophobia or allow racism to rear its ugly head in our society. Many communities across this country have been neglected for far too long, lacking decent investment and with too few—

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (23 Jan 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: Sunday is Holocaust Memorial Day, a time for us all to reflect on the horrors of genocide and to recommit to never again allowing the poison of antisemitism and racism to disfigure our society in any way. The Prime Minister was also right to acknowledge the other genocides that have happened since the second world war. It is up to us to try to prevent such horrors from ever happening again...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (5 Sep 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: There is no place for racism in any form within our society—on that we are all agreed—and we should tackle it wherever it arises, in our parties as well, and that includes the Conservative party. I join the Prime Minister in congratulating the English and Scottish women’s football teams on their qualification for the World cup, and I look forward to them doing extremely well. The...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (20 Jun 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...on the streets of my constituency. I thank him and all the religious leaders in the local community who did so much to bind people together. As a country, we should be bound together in condemning racism in any form wherever it arises. I was pleased that the Prime Minister mentioned the Windrush generation. I, too, join her in commemorating that event, when the Windrush generation arrived...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (25 Apr 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...I wish them well. We should also reflect on the fact that Doreen and Neville Lawrence fought for years to get justice for the death of their son.

We recognise that the Home Secretary has...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (14 Mar 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...and the abusive messages being sent to Muslim families all over this country. It has to be utterly condemned by all of us, just as we would condemn anybody who attempted to divide our country by racism or extremism of any form. We have to stand united with any community that is under threat at any time. I am sure the whole House will join me in supporting what the Prime Minister just said...

EU Council (29 Jun 2016)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...of racist attacks and abuse, wherever they occur in this country. I join him in that. We all need to calm our language and tone, and Members in all parts of the House must condemn the rise of racism in our society. Will he also reiterate absolutely his assurance to European Union nationals who are working here, providing support in our health service and in so many other services, that...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (8 Jun 2016)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...and met his wife Lonnie with Doreen Lawrence only a couple of weeks ago. I think we should commend his bravery in facing Parkinson’s disease and his courageous campaigning on civil rights, anti-racism and peace. Truly, all of us have lost one of the greatest. Yesterday, I met some workers from Sports Direct who were coming to Parliament to give evidence to the Select Committee on...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (4 May 2016)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...supporter who has shared platforms with the hon. Member for Richmond Park (Zac Goldsmith). The Prime Minister should also reflect on the words of Lord Lansley some years ago when he said that racism was “endemic” within his party. We have set up a commission of inquiry; I suggest that the Prime Minister might think about doing the same thing. Lord Kerslake, the former Government...

Business of the House: ISIL in Syria (2 Dec 2015)

Jeremy Corbyn: ..., and they are horrific. Surely this message must go out from all of us in the House today: none of us—we can say this together—will tolerate any form of anti-Semitism, Islamophobia or racism in any form in this country. In my view, the Prime Minister has offered no serious assessment of the impact of an intensified air campaign on civilian casualties in ISIL-held Syrian territory, or...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (18 Nov 2015)

Jeremy Corbyn: We know that, sadly, after atrocities such as those we have seen, intolerance such as Islamophobia, anti-Semitism and racism often increase. Does the Prime Minister agree that it is vital that everyone in public life—particularly we as politicians—must be careful how we discuss these issues? Will he join me in making it clear that the dreadful terrorism in Paris has nothing in common...
