Abstract

In the month following the contentious vote to leave the European Union, Britain experienced an alarming rise in hate crime. Home Office statistics showed a 41% rise compared with the same period last year. Many of these attacks and other forms of hate crime have been focused on EU migrants, especially Britain’s large Polish community. Graham Ackerman writes about the #BetterThanThat campaign that was launched yesterday and which aims to reverse the worrying increase in hate crime attacks in the UK.
