UN Special Rapporteur on Racism criticises UK government over austerity and immigration  

After two weeks in the UK, the UN’s Special Rapporteur on Racism says she’s alarmed at the stark increase in hate crimes and incidents across the UK during the post-Brexit era.

And she criticised the government’s adoption of “sweeping austerity measures” since 2010, which she said have “disproportionately” affected ethnic minorities.
