You can read the full open letter asking Greg Hands MP, Conservative Party Chairman, to take action on mayoral candidate Susan Hall’s racist social media below.
Dear Mr Hands,
I am writing to you as CEO of HOPE not hate, the UK’s leading anti-fascist campaign group. We are bringing to your attention the social media conduct of Susan Hall, your candidate for Mayor of London.
We are gravely concerned about what we have uncovered. HOPE not hate’s researchers have found Susan Hall liking posts endorsing Enoch Powell, islamophobic tropes about Sadiq Khan, supporting the myth that the 2020 American election was stolen from Donald Trump and expressing a disdain for the press and democracy.
We have found Susan Hall:
Susan Hall is hoping to be mayor of London, one of the most diverse cities in the world. She must be able to treat all Londoners equally and with respect. Given her social media conduct, we question that she would be fit to do so. These are not isolated incidents, it is a pattern of behaviour where when taken together it shows that Susan Hall must be investigated.
The Conservative Party must suspend Susan Hall and undertake a full investigation into her conduct and candidacy. We have enclosed a dossier of our evidence.
We look forward to seeing the Conservative Party taking swift action.
CEO, HOPE not hate
