Post-Brexit Racism Increase


The dust and (some of the) anger has begun to settle somewhat after the EU referendum result was confirmed in favour of the ‘leave’ campaign. We will know in the coming months and years just how significant this decision will be for the British economy and our place in the wider world.

One deeply troubling consequence widely reported this week is the significant increase in racial hatred claimed to have been inspired by the result.
