The Windrush Generation Publisher's summary

When you hear about one of the biggest scandals in modern home office history, it piques your interest. The Windrush Scandal is an example of the mentality of a bygone era in operation at the top levels of the UK government. Citizens of the British Commonwealth were invited to stay in the UK indefinitely between the end of the 1940s and the start of the 1970s in an attempt to bolster the UK labor market. Many people took up the invitation, upending their lives in an attempt to create a better life in their mother country. Those individuals and their children have gone on to become an integral part of the UK society we know today. They have contributed art, political discourse, and academic literature, and work in the many industries of the UK over a period spanning multiple decades. When someone that has contributed their life in this manner toward making the UK a better place, it’s a slap in the face when they’re kicked out of the UK in their old age because of immigrant removal targets. This after having established families and having earned comfortable pension years. In this audiobook you’ll be able to see exactly who this Windrush Generation is that has gone through these trials and tribulations. You’ll understand their history, their identity, and their current prospects.
