LEICESTER – Garment manufacturing bosses in Leicester are amongst those who’ve been singled out for blame for spreading the coronavirus in the UK, after a former government minister launched an attack on the country’s handling of the contagion in the House of Lords.

Lord Blencathra says he has been tempted to report every police force in the country for “committing mass hate crimes” against the elderly and disabled, due a perceived lack of enforcement of COVID-19 safety recommendations.  

“We saw mass law-breaking of every sort in Leicester by Asian sweatshop owners and again the police and authorities did nothing because they did not want to offend their communities,” he commented.
