Join me and the HOPE NOT HATE Team tomorrow in Lewisham Town Hall 1800hrI know that as a community we are all concerned with the rising tide of xenophobia, racism and bigotry in Britain, exacerbated by recent political events. We may be shocked, but we should not be surprised. The toxic nature of the Referendum debate has unleashed visceral hatred. Egged on by inflammatory language and images during the campaign, it has emboldened the haters lurking within our midst.
But this is not the Britain we know and love. These thugs do not speak for the vast majority of people in the country. And I’m sure they don’t speak for you, regardless of which way you voted in the Referendum.
#MoreInCommon by Hope Not Hate is a national campaign to bring our communities back together. I’d like you go be involved
