Watch: Amelia Gentleman on The Windrush Betrayal

Journalist and author Amelia Gentleman joins Prospect's Book Club to discuss her work on the Windrush scandal

By Prospect Team  

Listen back to January’s book club with Amelia Gentleman.

The Windrush scandal shocked the country when Amelia Gentleman exposed it in 2018. Hundreds of law-abiding people, many originally from the West Indies, were wrongfully deported back to places they hadn’t seen in decades. The scandal forced Home Secretary Amber Rudd to resign.

In her book The Windrush Betrayal, Gentleman tells the full story of her investigation. She shines a light on the people directly affected by the scandal and illustrates the devastating effect of a callous Home Office.
