A Swansea MP called out the employment of a controversial special adviser who has written in support of eugenics.
Andrew Sabisky, who was brought into Downing Street by Johnson’s senior aide Dominic Cummings as part of his appeal for “misfits and weirdos”, was forced to resign following an outcry from the media and the public.
Geraint Davies, said: “Swansea is a community of communities and a City of Sanctuary so for all our communities I will tirelessly defend our human rights. These rights are being threatened by the dark forces who preach racism and eugenics – a toxic cocktail we haven’t seen since the Second World War.”
“My mother watched the blitz in Swansea and my father joined the navy to fight the Nazis, so I find the idea that Boris Johnson has allowed those who advocate eugenics and racism into no 10 personally repugnant.”
Last week during questions to the Attorney general, Mr Davies said: “Our institutions of liberal democracy—the BBC, the judiciary and the civil service—are under attack.”
“Will he give a solemn undertaking that we will not be withdrawing from the European convention on human rights, which was established 62 years ago, with the help of Winston Churchill, and nor will we withdraw from the Council of Europe?”
