Work to be done to Handle discrimination, says UK PM Johnson

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Wednesday there was work to be done to tackle discrimination in Britain but his administration would look at fresh methods of legislating against vandalism of war memorials.

“It’s clear from the Dark Lives Issue march and all of the representations we have experienced that more work has to be performed,” he explained when asked why he had been establishing another review on racial inequality and discrimination.

But asked about violence and the targeting of a few figurines throughout the anti-racism protests,” Johnson told parliament: “I could tell the House (of Commons) any event of vandalism or assault on public land is going to be fulfilled with the complete force of this legislation enforcement and perpetrators will be prosecuted, and I will also confirm that we’re taking a look at new ways that we can legislate against vandalism of war memorials.”
