Episode 1 - The Windrush scandal: the fallout from a toxic policy

Listen to our podcast on the Windrush scandal

Posted on 15 July 2020

HMT Empire Windrush arrived at Tilbury Docks in June 1948, carrying Citizens of the United Kingdom and Colonies from Jamaica, and signalled the start of the post-war revival in which the hard work of new arrivals proved vital.
Now those very same people and their families, are suffering the repercussions of Theresa May’s ‘hostile environment’ policy towards immigrants.

Dawn Butler MP
Richard Meeran, Leigh Day Partner and head of the international department
