Britain’s Prime Minister Boris Johnson has backed his comments on the dismissal of England fast bowler Ally Robinson of the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) for his racist and sexist tweets. Alleging that the ECB was over-taken. A tough stance in the Robinson case.
When Robinson made these controversial tweets, the Sports Minister tweeted that he was young and today he is a mature and settled man. Dowden said the ECB should reconsider the dismissal of Ally Robinson.
Ollie Robinson’s tweets are offensive and wrong.
He is a decade older and written by a teenager. The teenager is now a man and has rightly apologized. The ECB has gone to the top by suspending them and thinking again.

An official spokesman for Prime Minister Johnson said in a statement: ‘The Prime Minister supports the views expressed by Oliver Dowden in a tweet this morning. As Oliver Dowden put it, these were comments made a decade ago and Robinson was still a teenager at the time. He has apologized to all for this.
