Discrimination in Sport (12 Jun 2019)

John Mann: ...bad, and of course that sends a huge message. Another thing that we in the House can do is recognise good practice. We should try to spread best practice. When dealing with discrimination and racism, I am a strong believer in looking at what may be succeeding and telling others to copy it. Let me give an example from the premier league. Chelsea football club has launched a programme on...

Prime Minister: Engagements (24 Apr 2019)

John Mann: ...Football Association responded with a six-match ban and a £50 fine. If we bear in mind what is happening to Raheem Sterling and Danny Rose, who have called for a national forum, and the growth of racism at every level in football, is it not clear that without our help and Government help the football authorities are not capable of getting on top of the problem of racism in football? Will...

Exiting the European Union (Agriculture): Antisemitism in Modern Society (20 Feb 2019)

John Mann: ...of Maguire. The enablers of antisemitism are as big a problem as the antisemites, and they are more numerous. It is time the enablers were exposed. I have exposed one: Kevin Maguire—an enabler of racism.

Football: Safe Standing — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (25 Jun 2018)

John Mann: issue is the firing of pyrotechnics as missiles from one end of the stadium to the other. That is a major issue in Italy. The supporter who fell to his death in a stadium this year and the racism at Lazio compound the safety issue. Let us be clear: in the Bundesliga, there is a whole series of safety problems—some in the seating but some in the safe-standing areas, too, which the...

Polish Anti-defamation Law — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (5 Jun 2018)

John Mann: ...’.” He said that on Polish radio recently—because the Sonderkommando ran the death camps, we should therefore rename them “Jewish death camps”. Bring in this kind of law and that kind of racism and anti-Semitism is unleashed. But this is not something that started in Poland; it started elsewhere in eastern Europe. People have been too silent about it—about trying to use the law...

Occupied Palestinian Territories: Israeli Settlements: Football Association Governance (9 Feb 2017)

John Mann: the grassroots are shambolic and must be overhauled. Let me put in a word in defence for the FA. It was the FA that took action on Anelka and the quenelle. It is the FA that has taken action on racism. It is not the FA that is responsible for football clubs not employing black and Asian coaches. It is the premier league clubs, the Football League clubs, and the league clubs in other...

Anti-Semitism — [Mrs Anne Main in the Chair] (9 Dec 2014)

John Mann: see praised publicly by Mr Speaker and many senior party representatives and stakeholders. We found in the inquiry that although there was sufficient legal provision to address incidents of racism and discrimination in UK elections, the law is underused and misunderstood. We recommended that some of the language of electoral law needed to be updated. The Law Commission, which has...

Shrewsbury 24 (Release of Papers): Holocaust Memorial Day (23 Jan 2014)

Friend agree that inter-parliamentary co-operation in dealing with racism and anti-Semitism is essential in stopping the spread of that kind of vehemently racist party?

Football (Financial Transparency) (13 Mar 2012)

John Mann: ...for Folkestone and Hythe (Damian Collins) for the work he has done in this field and through the Culture, Media and Sport Committee—its reports are excellent and we look forward to the report on racism in football. He identified a particular problem that is dear to my heart: the opaqueness of the ownership of Leeds United football club, a club I have supported throughout my life. Indeed,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Culture, Media and Sport: Football Governance (Football Association) (15 Dec 2011)

John Mann: The Football Association is significantly more enlightened than either UEFA or FIFA when it comes to tackling racism in football. Would the Minister be prepared to meet the all-party group on anti-Semitism and community groups such as Community Security Trust, the Holocaust Educational Trust and Searchlight to listen to our concerns about what more the Government, the FA and UEFA can do to...

[Katy Clark in the Chair] — backbench business — Anti-Semitism (20 Jan 2011)

John Mann: ...a marker for the rest of the country. Our robust approach, first and foremost, has been to take responsibility in our own parties-although we work on a cross-party basis-for sorting out issues of racism and, specifically, anti-Semitism. In other words, we sort out our own parties before pointing the finger at our opponents. As has been stated on the Floor of the House, therefore, successes...

[Katy Clark in the Chair] — backbench business — Anti-Semitism (20 Jan 2011)

John Mann: I agree with the hon. Gentleman. Our approach has always been to make it clear that when we deal with anti-Semitism, we deal with racism. Some people would be prepared-not necessarily happily-to be called anti-Semites. They would certainly love to be called anti-Zionists, which they would regard as an accolade. When they are described as racists, however, they do not like that term, even...

Holocaust Memorial Day (28 Jan 2010)

John Mann: ...we should do something, whether in connection with Holocaust memorial day or in some other way, to look at the contribution of Britain in 1948, why Britain was chosen to host the Olympics, and how racism and the holocaust link to the history of the Olympics. There is a British angle, not least in relation to holocaust survivors in this country who became Olympians, that is a worthy subject...

Anti-racism (UN Conference) (28 Apr 2009)

John Mann: ...debate in order to assess the recent Durban review conference of the United Nations, which took place in Geneva. The background to the conference was that in 2001 the UN World Conference Against Racism was convened in Durban, South Africa.

Anti-racism (UN Conference) (28 Apr 2009)

John Mann: ...of holocaust education. One of the interesting dilemmas and problems with the Durban conference, the Durban review process and the Geneva conference is that, in a conference looking at anti-racism, the problems in the run-up to the conference for several years and the problems in the conference itself were about racism, including overt racism. Such overt racism was exactly what was seen in...
