Police position 'absolutely wrong' over use of Y-word

Tottenham supporters could do more to educate the wider community over their use of the Y-word. Darren Alexander, of the Tottenham Supporters' Trust, wants the club and fans to explain to the Jewish community why they use the chant but feels the approach taken by the Met Police is the wrong one:

The whole police position on this issue is absolutely wrong.

It is different when Spurs fans use the term to when fans from other clubs use it.

We would do everything in our power to meet the test of transitioning our fans to a new identity or away from the present one.
