The key question in this debate is what role a diverse business community has to play with the governance of British society and businesses in Britain. A new battleground is emerging as second and third generation BME communities become increasingly affluent and move out of ‘cluster’ areas into ‘non-cluster’ areas which have always more traditionally voted Conservative or Lib Dem.
It is also important to recognise that a good Labour policy offer for ethnic minorities is good Labour policy in any case. For example, poverty is higher among every ethnic minority group than for the white majority population including in-work poverty and child poverty, and Labour’s track record of delivering on universal services such as the National Health Service and on education continues to be attractive to ethnic minority voters. There is more work to do to improve the accessibility of public services and politics with an increasingly diverse British public in mind. This event will discuss ideas around this issue
