Institutionalised racism in the British Army has been exposed once again.
A central London Employment Tribunal has found that unidentified members of the 3rd Battalion the Parachute regiment drew swastikas and the word "n****r" on the photographs of two former paratroopers (Morning Star 17/9/19).
The Tribunal also heard allegations that para members displayed confederate flags, posed for pictures with far right criminal Tommy Robinson and described Kenyan soldiers as "African animals."
Those allegations, dating back as far as 2014, were deemed to be "out of time" and therefore inadmissible.
The Scottish Republican Socialist Movement notes that many will not be surprised by the revelations. The British Army has a history of bigotry and repression. The Para's record, including in Ireland, has been particularly appalling.
