Bigots are not welcome in the Liberal Democrats

Echoing Liberal Democrat leader Vince Cable, Alex agrees that racism, anti-Semitism, Islamophobia, sexism, transphobia, and bigotry in any form are not welcome in the Liberal Democrats.


In a recent blog post, Vince said "The last ten days have seen major stories of racism in both of Britain's major parties."

"What is happening in the Labour party - and Boris Johnson's comments this week - are frightening to many Jewish and Muslim people living in Britain."

"This is a reflection of the way the politics of identity dominates politics today and attracts comments, sometimes critical or offensive, about particular groups."

Alex said "Vince is absolutely right. The Liberal Democrats have a long history of championing equality and the end to discrimination in all of its forms, and its one of the many reasons I am proud to be a Lib Dem."

"We must stand up against politicians who use dog-whistle politics to stir up hatred and division, and against those to stand by silently when they see such injustice in our society."

"Britain deserves better than what both Labour and the Conservatives are offering. It's time for a real change."
