Michael Vaughan, the former England cricket captain, has been chastised for tweeting, “Not many English people live in London.”
Michael Vaughan, the former England cricket captain, was involved in a Twitter spat last night after writing: “Not many English people live in London.”
I need to brush up on my foreign language skills.”
In October 2010, Vaughan, 47, made the remark.
“This is an unfortunate comment,” Faith Matters’ Fiyaz Mughal said, “as people from diverse communities are fully integrated as British people.”
Vaughan is said to have told his former Yorkshire teammate Azeem Rafiq and two other Asian cricketers a year earlier that there are “too many of you lot.”
“Something needs to be done about it.”
Rafiq, 30, was racially abused at the club according to a report, but no action was taken.
Rafiq’s family attended a Stump out Racism protest at Yorkshire CC’s home in Headingley yesterday.
Vaughan has categorically denied making racist or hateful remarks.
