Institutional Racism

 

Barack Obama would have found it impossible to become prime minister in Britain because of "institutional racism" within the British political system, according to Trevor Phillips, the chairman of the Equalities and Human Rights Commission.

Well of course.

He added: "If Barack Obama had lived here I would be very surprised if even somebody as brilliant as him would have been able to break through the institutional stranglehold on power within the Labour Party.

There are substantial parts of the Labour Party that have a blind hatred for America and Americans. No way would they let an American rise to the top.

  1. Interesting comment, Chris. I think some of you hold Gordon in too much awe though… he isn’t an institution yet? Perhaps you were commenting from one.

  2. I understand the stranglehold on power in the labour party for the past fifteen years or so was a conspiracy between Tony Blair and Gordon Brown from the Granita restaurant.

  3. This sounds to me like the whingeing of a disappointed man: Trevor Phillips feels his ambition to be Prime Minister has been thwarted.

  4. Oh, you Brits!

    Why not congratulate yourselves about the fact that a cretin like Bible Spice would never have made it into the House of Commons, instead of beating yourselves up about the nonexistent chances of a black person becoming Prime Minister. 😉

    You’ve not heard of Nadine Dorries then?
