[/news/keir-starmer/index.html Keir Starmer] is facing huge pressure to condemn a letter from dozens of his MPs accusing Priti Patel of 'gaslighting' [/news/black-lives-matter/index.html Black Lives Matter] protesters by talking about her own experiences of racism.
The Labour leader has refused to criticise the letter, signed by frontbenchers, despite a wave of outrage and fury from the [/news/priti-patel/index.html Home Secretary].
Meanwhile, London mayor [/news/sadiq_khan/index.html Sadiq Khan] defended the MPs for demanding Ms Patel recognise that racism against the black community was 'different', swiping that she 'lacked emotional intelligence'.
The Labour politicians laid into Ms Patel for the way she spoke about her own background as the daughter of Gujarati refugees from Uganda during a Commons debate on BLM demos earlier this week.
The letter voiced 'dismay at the way you used your heritage and experiences of racism to gaslight the very real racism faced by Black people and communities across the UK'.
