UK ‘still has problem with racism’, admits Cameron
London: British Prime Minister David Cameron has admitted that Britain “still has a problem with racism” and added that “a lot more” needs to be done to tackle the issue.
In an interview related to the 1993 high-profile murder trial of black teenager Stephen Lawrence, Cameron said Britain was a “less racist country” than at the time of Stephen`s death, but he admitted that people from minority ethnic backgrounds still faced disadvantage.
“I think we are a less racist country, but we have still got a problem with racism. We have still got a problem of people from different racial backgrounds being disadvantaged in Britain,” The Telegraph quoted Cameron, as saying.
“I think the country has come a huge way since that dreadful murder, but there is still a lot more to be done,” he added.
When asked about the future of the Metropolitan Police’s Lawrence inquiry team on Sky News, Cameron refused to comment.
“It`s a matter for the police. They must feel empowered to seek the truth and find justice,” Cameron said.
“The Metropolitan Police and Metropolitan Police Authority I believe in trusting them to make those decisions and I think it is right that they should,” he added.
