MP apologises over 'racist' blog post

Emma Dent Coad
Pa

A Labour MP accused of writing a "racist" article about London Assembly Member, Shaun Bailey, has apologised for "any offence caused."

Emma Dent Coad wrote a blog piece in 2010 in which she labelled Shaun Bailey a "token ghetto boy".

Mr Bailey called the piece a "hate-filled, racist article".

Ms Dent Coad told BBC Radio London she had been quoting "an afro-carribean" constituent in her blog. She added: "If [Mr Bailey] is offended, I apologise."
