An award-winning charity boss who has helped thousands of disadvantaged youngsters has been sacked after criticising the far-Left political agenda of the Black Lives Matter campaign.

Nick Buckley was dismissed by the trustees of Mancunian Way, a ground-breaking charity he founded nine years ago, after an online mob accused him of ‘inappropriate’ and ‘insensitive’ views and demanded his removal.

Mr Buckley, who was awarded an MBE six months ago for his work with vulnerable youngsters across Manchester, warned of the ‘neo-Marxist’ policies of Black Lives Matter UK – which include tearing down capitalism and abolishing the police – and said they risked dividing communities.

But his 570-word blog sparked uproar among campaigners who branded him a racist and launched an online petition demanding that he be sacked. The 52-year-old was dismissed within days.

In an interview with The Mail on Sunday, he said the charity’s trustees had been put in a ‘terrible situation’ by the pressure on social media to axe him, adding: ‘That’s why the mob wins. They make people take a step backwards and once you take one step backwards, they know you’ll take another.’

Mr Buckley worked for Manchester City Council for seven years before setting up Mancunian Way in 2011. Its projects include helping youngsters in inner city areas to secure jobs and spot the signs that they are being groomed by criminal gangs.

Those helped by Mancunian Way include thousands of black, Asian and minority ethnic youngsters.
