Labour: Remove whip from MP Emma Dent Coad for racist comments

This petition had 372 supporters

Labour MP Emma Dent Coad has called black Conservative candidate Shaun Bailey a “token ghetto boy” and “free-loading scumbag” who is “not welcome” in Kensington, her constituency. This vile and racist language is not fit for the 21st century, let alone an elected member of Parliament.

Jeremy Corbyn must remove the whip of this MP and suspend Dent Coad from the party, as these comments are disgusting and have no place in modern life.

Tory MP Kemi Badenoch described the remarks: "EDC’s comments were profoundly distressing, and a toxic reminder of the struggle black people face daily in defeating stereotypes."
