Ian Blackford calls on PM to 'call out and condemn racism of the go home van'

SNP Westminster leader Ian Blackford called on Theresa May to “call out and condemn the racism of the go home van”.

Speaking during PMQs in the Commons, he said: “This week the Prime Minister finally did the right thing.

When Donald Trump told women they should go home, she called it out as unacceptable.

“Let me be clear, Donald Trump’s actions are textbook racism, they are repugnant and diplomatic politeness should never stop us from saying so.

“Will the Prime Minister now on reflection also take the opportunity to call out and condemn the racism of the go home van, that she created in coalition government with the Liberal Democrats.” Mrs May replied: “I said at the time that, that was too blunt an instrument – but there is an important issue here, which is that the public expect us to have a fair immigration system which deals with those who are here illegally and that is what we need to do.” She added: “I have strongly condemned those comments made by President Trump.”
