Views of the Chairman:
During the 2016 UK Election ‘Round’, the Tories played the race ‘card’ against the Labour party.
Cameron and Goldsmith were at it. Even after they had lost in London, the lovely Michael Fallon was preaching that all this was normal election ‘rough and tumble’.
Thankfully, the London electorate were not taken in.
For me, it was a particular delight to see Ed Milliband celebrating Sadiq Khan’s inauguration.
But sadly, it seems that certain parts of the Country might have been. We even had a member quit in Welwyn Hatfield.
So please can we all reflect on – and be proud of - the true values of our Party - always against any form of racial, nationalistic, religious or sexual prejudice– against Jewish, Muslim, Hindu, Catholic, Gays, or…. you name it.
Societies (Countries, Cities, Regions, Organizations) are better – more or less in direct proportion to the degrees of tolerance that are shown to all forms of ‘difference’.
If any Party tries to understand and speak up for minorities, we do.
As Europe and the Wider World become less stable, all political parties would do very well to avoid stoking up any more racial or nationalistic prejudices.
