The Tories are tough on Islamophobia? What a joke | Jonathan Freedland | Opinion | The Guardian
It means that both main UK parties are now facing accusations of institutional racism. Some will wonder why, of the two, it’s the issue of Labour antisemitism that has so far garnered the greater attention. One explanation is not flattering to the Tory party. It is simply that people expect much less of the Tories than they do of an avowedly anti-racist party such as Labour. Put another way, if the Tory party is riddled with bigotry towards a minority, it hardly comes as a surprise.
