“I’ve been treated differently by my peers, because of the colour of my skin, and it feels like that in parliament”

Nadia Whittome is the youngest MP in the UK.

The ‘Baby of the House’ represents Nottingham East and is just 23 years old. She sat down with JOE to discuss a bittersweet election night, Labour’s future and her early experiences of racism in parliament.

She also revealed that, just two weeks into her career in the House of Commons, she has witnessed the insidious racism that resides within its historic walls.
