PM’s equality review “drawn up on back of fag packet” says Labour – BBC News

Boris Johnson’s plan to set up a commission into racial inequality, in response to the Black Lives Matter protests, has been criticised by Labour’s Justice spokesman David Lammy.

He said the prime minister’s proposal had been “drawn up on the back of a fag packet”and that instead of yet another review, Boris Johnson should implement the recommendations that previous inquiries had already come up with.

Meanwhile in the United States, the widow of an African-American man who was shot dead by police in Atlanta has appealed for protests against his killing to be peaceful and said her family will never heal.

Rayshard Brooks was shot while running away from two white police officers in a restaurant car park. His niece said he had been killed like a piece of trash in the street.
