Jewish, Muslim and LGBT communities oppose hate-crime hotline plans

London’s Jewish, Muslim and LGBT communities have joined forces to oppose plans by Boris Johnston for a hate-crime hotline, claiming it would dissuade victims from reporting anti-Semitic, Islamophobic and homophobic attacks at a time of rising attacks.

Not yet officially announced, internal emails from the mayor’s office for policing and crime, seen by the Guardian, reveal that Johnson is intending to introduce a one-number hotline for reporting hate crime throughout the capital.


Hmmmm… We know Tell Mama’s history of inflated “Islamophobic hate crimes”, so I can’t take anything they say at face value.
