Angela Smith has issued an apology following an appearance on BBC’s Politics Live this afternoon in which she described Black and minority ethnic people as being a “funny tinge” (or “tint”).
In the tweeted video, Smith said: “I’ve seen the clip from Politics Live. I’m very sorry about any offence caused, and I’m very upset that I misspoke so badly. It’s not what I am. I am committed to fighting racism wherever I find it in our society.”
