***LONGLISTED FOR THE BAILLIE GIFFORD PRIZE 2019*** How do you pack for a one-way journey back to a country you left when you were eleven and have not visited for fifty years? 'A timely reminder of what truly great journalists can achieve.' David Olusoga 'It is impossible to overstate the importance of this heartbreaking book.' James O'Brien Amelia Gentleman's expose of the Windrush scandal shocked the nation, and led to the resignation of Amber Rudd as Home Secretary. Her tenacious reporting revealed how the government's 'hostile environment' immigration policy had led to thousands of law-abiding people being wrongly classified as illegal immigrants, with many being removed from the country, and many more losing their homes and their jobs. In The Windrush Betrayal, Gentleman tells the full story of her investigation for the first time. Her writing shines a light on the people directly affected by the scandal and illustrates the devastating effect of politicians becoming so disconnected from the world outside Westminster that they become oblivious to the impact of their policy decisions. This is a vitally important account that exposes deeply disturbing truths about modern Britain. 'Gentleman boldly chronicles the devastating reality of a scandal that illegalised, imbruted and abandoned British citizens [w]ith the same tenacity that she used to expose the truth of Windrush in the first place'. David Lammy MP
