Farron: Labour take ethnic minority votes for granted
Tim Farron Liberal Leader
Liberal Democrat Leader Tim Farron will today (Tuesday 2nd May) criticise Labour, claiming their record and reputation amongst ethnic minority communities is in tatters.
With Labour’s vote share among ethnic minorities collapsing and the Conservatives lurching increasingly to the right, the Liberal Democrats have a huge opportunity to win swathes of ethnic minority votes, which also saw a significant boost when they were the only party to campaign against the invasion of Iraq. Speaking during an event at Westminster Synagogue, Tim Farron will say:
“Labour have been taking Britain’s ethnic minority communities for granted for far too long.
“Even before Brexit, it was an open secret that Labour weren’t engaging with certain communities because they felt ethnic minorities would vote for them regardless. Even their own MP Chuka Umunna has admitted that.
“But now that Labour have waived the white flag on Brexit and given Theresa May a blank cheque to choose the hardest and most divisive form of Brexit – I want to openly say to Labour voters – join us.”
On the Conservatives, Tim will say:
“UKIP might as well take the rest of the election off because the Tories are fighting their campaign for them.
“We have a Conservative MP who admits to negotiating with UKIP and praises their proposed ban on burkas. Progressive Conservatives need to ask themselves if there is any difference between the Conservative Party and the vile prejudice of UKIP.
“The only opposition to these three Brexit-style parties is the Liberal Democrats. There is a clear choice at this election to keep Britain open, tolerant and united – and that is to vote Liberal Democrat.”
