Europhile Labour MP: ‘Ignore’ White Men In EU Campaign, They Are The ‘Problem’

Pat Glass MP
Labour’s shadow Europe minister has attacked “older white men” as a “problem”, instructing those campaigning to stay in the European Union (EU) to focus on women and the young. Pat Glass, the MP for North West Durham, made the comments during a pro-European Union (EU) rally in Wolverhampton, whilst stood alongside the shadow chancellor John McDonnell. Just a couple of weeks ago, she claimed to have met a “horrible racist” when out campaigning who was concerned about mass migration from the EU. According to the Express & Star, she said women and young people were the “key” demographics for Europhiles to target, adding: “Go and speak to your mother, your grandmother. Don’t speak to your grandfather, we know the problem are older white men.” Shadow chancellor Mr. McDonnell is reported to have laughed, responding: “Can I speak up for a couple of older white men? I’ll let Jeremy [Corbyn] know.” A Labour spokesman from the party’s West Midlands region insisted: “It was a light-hearted comment and it was received in that way by the audience. “Labour are clearly fighting for every single vote and are of course encouraging everyone to vote to remain on 23 June.” Great to be campaigning in Northumberland with
