WASPI women row as BBC panellist sparks furious backlash with one controversial remark


WASPI campaigners have expressed their anger with, ex-Tory adviser, Samuel Kasumu’s comment that “sorry should be enough” while speaking on the BBC.

Samuel Kasumu said:”I don’t think compensation is appropriate for this particular circumstance, sometimes ‘sorry’ should be enough” when discussing whether WASPI women should receive their recommended levels of compensation.

Co-Chair of the APPG, Rebecca Long-Bailey reacted negatively to the idea that WASPI women had “ample time” to find out about the changes and that the women would benefit from the triple lock.

Miss Long-Bailey referred to the Government’s failures with the WASPI women as an “injustice”

She said: ” we have hear harrowing stories from huge numbers of women who have been destitue, some have lost their homes, some have faced mental health difficulties, some have been suicidal. This is a huge injustice and needs to be treated in that way.”
