‘The government should be ashamed of themselves’ over Windrush scandal, says Andy Murray
Andy Murray has expressed his outrage over the Windrush scandal, saying the UK “government should be ashamed of themselves”.
The three-time Grand Slam winner made the comment after watching Sitting in Limbo, a BBC One feature-length drama inspired by the Windrush shame.
It is based on the real-life story of Anthony Bryan, who arrived legally in the UK from Jamaica in 1965 when he was eight years old.
After working in the UK for 50 years, he applied for a passport in 2015 only to be told by the Home Office that he was in the UK illegally and he was wrongfully detained and threatened with deportation.
Bryan is one of more than 150 people of Caribbean descent who may have been wrongly detained or deported with the Windrush scandal only coming to light in 2018.
Former world No 1 Murray posted the following message on his Instagram Story: “Just finished watching Sitting in Limbo. The government should be ashamed of themselves.”
