In the Guardian Today

The Labour MP for Brent South, Dawn Butler, is one of only two black women MPs and the first elected black woman Government Minister. The MP for the other constituency which will be merged into the new Brent Central seat is Liberal Democrat Sarah Teather. Ms Teather has appeared on Question Time on at least four occasions since the 2005 election and on no less than three times this year. Dawn Butler has never been invited to appear. We are truly alarmed that Nick Griffin will now appear on Question Time before Britain’s first elected black woman Government Minister. We wonder if the apparent bias against Dawn Butler is symptomatic of what Greg Dyke once called “a hideously white organisation”.
