Board of Deputies President Marie van der Zyl has reacted to an interview the rapper, Wiley, has given in the The Voice newspaper.

She said: “We are saddened and concerned that The Voice, with its long history of campaigning against racial injustice, has run a piece that echoed and amplified Wiley’s racist tropes, rather than challenging them. We urge the paper to reflect, rectify and move focus to mutual solidarity.”
