  1. I was aghast that OBV would have a representative of a party that doesn’t have a single black Member of Parliament on their list of speakers at a rally calling for black people to use their vote in the upcoming General Election

  2. OBV tried hard to get top level speakers from each party for this event, which proved difficult. I was certainly expecting a Labour speaker to turn up.

    As for the Lib Dems, Carole are you suggesting a boycott of their speakers because of the current make-up of their Commons team, or do you believe they should be encouraged and supported on their journey to improve – a process that is certainly going on right now?
