Labour’s David Lammy has insisted that comparing the Brexit-supporting European Research Group (ERG) to the Nazis “wasn’t strong enough” and suggested the BBC should deplatform them, shortly after demanding an amnesty for hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants.
#Marr: "That was an unacceptable comparison, wasn't it?"

Lammy, a Minister of State for Culture in the Tony Blair era, is a fanatical anti-Brexiteer, having pleaded “Wake up. We do not have to do this. We can stop this madness through a vote in Parliament” just days after the vote to Leave the European in 2016.
Challenged on previous comments “comparing the ERG to the Nazi party” on the BBC’s Andrew Marr Show, Lammy was unapologetic, replying, “Andrew, I would say that that wasn’t strong enough.”
“Let me just me clear, I’m an ethnic minority,” emphasised the London MP, who is a strong proponent of racial identity politics.
