Lib Dems and Ethnic Minorities

The Liberal Democrats’ record when it comes to Black and Ethnic Minority representation is woeful. In Parliament, the Lib Dems have NO ethnic minority MPs at all.

The Conservatives fair slightly better by having two ethnic minority MPs and this is projected to get better in the upcoming election.

It is true that ALL political parties need to do much better on this issue, but what is also clear is which party is leading the way in bettering representation of ethnic minorities at the highest level; The Labour Party. We currently have 13.

What’s more, it is an absolute scandal that the Lib Dems did not put forward a single black or ethnic candidate out of a possible 7 for London from the European elections in 2009.

Vote Labour on May 6 for a Parliament that provides better representation to the people.
