Keir Starmer fails to challenge radio caller's racist conspiracy theory – video

The Labour leader has been criticised for failing to challenge a caller to a radio phone-in who advanced a racist conspiracy theory and hailed Israel as an ethnonationalist utopia. The caller to his LBC phone-in said she opposed footballers taking a knee in solidarity with antiracism 'because if anything the racial inequality is now against the indigenous people of Britain, because we are set to become a minority by 2066'. The claim is a feature of the 'great replacement' conspiracy theory that claims elites are using migration to make white people an ethnic minority in Europe. In response, Starmer defended the taking the knee gesture and added that he thought 'the vast majority of people do want a more equal society'
