I spoke at a very interesting meeting this afternoon hosted by an organisation called GHARWEG.
The themes discussed ranged from immigration policy, development and aid, the BNP and reparation payments for the slave trade. The debate was very well conducted and I was pleased that while it was passionate it didn’t become heated.
Representatives were invited from the two main parties as well as the Greens and the Lib Dems. One of the questions that came up was the degree to which some political parties take the ethnic vote for granted, ironically enough neither the Labour councillor or Simon Hughes for the Lib Dems turned up. At least the Labour guy had the decency to ring up and apologise, still no news for the big yellow taxi!
