I do admire David Lammy for being so upfront about the kind of gooseberry fool he deals with.
I guess my (foolish) hope was that whilst you are always going to get closet racists and people outside of "the public sphere" who hold these views - those in politics and power should surely be beyond it by now?
But then I guess you can never tell what people are thinking under the surface, those who appear tolerant may only be doing so for their own benefit. Reminds me of the Stewart Lee quote: "if political correctness has achieved one thing, it's to make the Conservative Party cloak its inherent racism behind more creative language."
