Jeremy Corbyn faces race row for making white people pay more than ethnic minorities to hear a speech

Jeremy Corbyn faced a race row last night for making white people pay more than ethnic minorities to hear him deliver a speech.

The dispute erupted over a decision by Labour chiefs to charge black and ethnic minority activists £10 less per ticket than white activists to attend a rally next month.

Tory MPs last night accused Labour of racism and said it was further evidence that the party had abandoned the white working class.

Labour officials defended the decision to make white party members pay £40 to attend the East Midlands Labour gathering in Loughborough on February 17.

Canada’s Liberal Party is sounding more and more like this every day.
