Priti Patel has criticised sports stars who ‘take the knee’ and attacked last year’s Black Lives Matter protests as “dreadful”.
Asked if she would adopt the symbol of injustice, the home secretary said: “No I would not. There are other ways in which people can express their opinions.”

Ms Patel also refused to express confidence in Metropolitan Police Commissioner Cressida Dick, saying she “does a lot of great work” – but that there were “questions’ about her.

At one point, she appeared to say she did not support protests at all, before clarifying she opposed the BLM demonstrations that swept the country last summer, saying: “Those protests were dreadful.”
