Justice delayed, is justice denied. The Govt promised to provide justice with the Windrush Compensation Scheme. 20% of claimants have applied & only 5% have received anything. 23 have now died without receiving anything. It is time an independent body was given the task!

There is no British history without the history of empire. I am here because you were there. My ancestors were not British subjects because they came to Britain. They were British subjects because Britain came to them and sold them into slavery. My Windrush speech on our history:

Dear Sender, I'm a little confused. Do you want me to be "hung upside down" by my "dirty black bollocks" or get "a banana" and climb up a tree? I can't do both. And how do you propose sinking the Windrush which arrived in 1948? You can do your explaining to the police, David

I have just received a letter telling me to be “grateful” as a black man for all “we have done for those black people who came to live here” or “go back to where ever you came from”. I was born in the Whittington Hospital the son of Windrush migrants. And I will speak for them.

This is the shocking true story of Anthony Bryan. Just one of the hundreds of victims at the heart of the Windrush immigration scandal. #SittingInLimbo  Monday 8th June, 8.30pm @BBCOne  & @BBCiPlayer 

The Conservatives have marked their own homework & decreed that Britain is a "model" on racial equality. It's a disgraceful sham. From Windrush to Grenfell, the Criminal Justice system to rates of poverty, systemic racism is all too real. We demand change, not this whitewash.

Scandal is not a strong enough word for what this country did to the Windrush generation. It’s utterly shameful. A national disgrace. #SittingInLimbo

"We want rehabilitation, now that would be amazing But Grenfell victims still need accommodation And we still need support for the Windrush generation." @Santandave1  #Brits2020
