UK: Hate crime 'at record levels' after Brexit vote

Gustavo BishopFeb 16 , 2017

Nearly every police force in the country has reported a rise in hate crimes.

The new figures represent a 41% rise in hate crimes compared to the same period in 2015, with more than 14.000 incidents.

Gurvinder Sandher, who chairs the Kent Police Independent Advisory Group, acts as vice chair of the Kent Police and Crime Panel and stood as an independent in last year's police and crime commissioner election admitted he was concerned by the figures.

New figures show record levels of hate crimes following the European Union referendum.

David Isaac, chairman of the EHRC, said it "must be sensible to prepare for any possible spikes" in hate crime once Brexit negotiations got under way.

Following the European Union referendum vote, there was a rash of anecdotal reports of hate crimes throughout the country.

New figures showed that in some places hate crime spiked by more than 50 percent in the three months following the vote to leave the EU.

"Had the campaign been conducted in a different manner, I don't think we would have seen that explosion in hate crime".

A further 31 police forces reported that more than 1,500 offenses relating to the victim's race or religion had been recorded in the two weeks up to and including the day of the referendum, June 23.

The new analysis, the Press Association says, provides a first full glimpse of hate crime statistics in the country following the June referendum vote, and has prompted The Equality and Human Rights Commission in the United Kingdom to warn the country's police departments to prepare for more possible spikes as Brexit negotiations get underway.

'It is clear, however, that a small minority of people used the Brexit vote to legitimise inexcusable racism and prejudice.

'The triggering of Article 50 is the next major milestone and we must do all we can to discourage hate attacks and to support people who feel at risk'.

"We remain absolutely committed to reducing hate crime and take every report seriously".

The new analysis shows that a rise in incidents was seen in nearly every force in England and Wales, both year-on-year and when comparing the three months either side of the referendum.
