02 Oct 2018
Diane Abbott MP, Labour’s Shadow Home Secretary, responding to Sajid Javid’s call for a “British values test” for all new citizens in his Conservative Party conference speech, said: 

“It’s not clear this is any improvement on Theresa May’s derided ‘British values’ test in 2015, or even Norman Tebbit’s earlier cricket test. The idea that a Government whose hostile environment policy and handling of the Windrush scandal has brought shame to the country, should be defining British values is deeply worrying. People in this country value tolerance and getting along together. To demand something else is surely very un-British.”
