Solidarity @shaistaAziz Today has been another reminder for the game & the naysayers who have been too busy attacking myself @GeorgeDobell1 & @cricket_badger #EnoughIsEnough
This happened to @MatthewStadlen and I after we left @Edgbaston. The man’s casual racism and use of the P word - which he whispered while leaning into Matt to describe people “like me” was disgusting. Matt dealt with him and we walked away to enjoy rest of our evening. #ENGvIND

So Boris Johnson was made aware of a formal complaint about Chris Pincher's "inappropriate behaviour" before he appointed him deputy chief whip, a job which involves ensuring Tory party discipline? Even Johnson’s most cultish followers must surely be at breaking point?

Incredibly sorry to hear this. I was with my friend who wears a hijab and an England ‘fan’ whispered the P word to me when we asked him and his mates for directions outside the ground. I put him straight but it was a shocking moment at the end of a glorious day.

We are very concerned to hear reports of racist abuse at today's Test match. We are in contact with colleagues at Edgbaston who will investigate. There is no place for racism in cricket

So much for battling racism in cricket!! @Edgbaston was horrific today. So many complaints made to stewards however said person was not removed. So disappointed in what we had to face most of the day. @ICC @ECB_cricket @BCCI

If Boris Johnson is too much now even for the Mail on Sunday, surely it’s over?
