We are a band of dedicated individuals pledged to keep liberal, democratic values flourishing locally, nationally and internationally; to promote greater equality, environmentalism and to fight for the people of Dudley, Stourbridge and Halesowen. We care about community-based local politics, and we work hard to get individual Liberal Democrats elected to all levels of Government, with a focus on Dudley Council especially. Our aim is to keep in touch with the local communities through residents' surveys and by distributing our local "Focus" leaflets, not just at election time but all year round.

    I want to send my best wishes to Muslims in the UK and across the world as we welcome the Holy Month of Ramadan.

    Ramadan is a time of reflection, renewal and generosity. These are much needed in our communities, our politics and all our lives.

    A second year observing Ramadan with restrictions on meeting together will be difficult. Holding an iftar will be different, loved ones will be missed and celebrations will be muted.

    You will have all seen the deeply disturbing Commission on Race and Ethnic Disparities report (the Sewell report) released.

    LDCRE calls out the Government's new race report as being deeply concerning in areas and ignorant of the reality of Britain today.

    It is not time to continually review whether or not racism exists at all - but to take action to address it immediately, across all areas of society.

    By Dr Yeow Poon, Chair of CLDs

    CLD was one of the 325 organisations and 2,004 individuals who responded in good faith to an open consultation in November 2020 by the Commission on Race and Ethnic Disparities.

    The Commission was established by Prime Minster Boris Johnson to investigate race and ethnic disparities in the UK and the state of race relations today. Although the report made some sensible recommendations its overall tone and the conclusion that there is no evidence of institutional racism, structural racism or white privilege in the UK is wrong. The report has been utterly rejected by increasing numbers of academics, anti-racism organisations, health professionals and even professional bodies, like the Royal Institute of British Architects and the British Sociological Association. The report has been criticised for cherry picking data to suit a pre-determined narrative and ignoring huge swathes of research.

    "Prince Philip dedicated his life to our country. We will always be grateful for his amazing service, not least the powerful legacy he leaves to millions of young people who have taken part in his unique Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme.

    "His quiet and steadfast counsel and support of The Queen, is perhaps his greatest if unquantifiable contribution to our nation's history.

    "At this sad time for millions, we should never forget Prince Philip was a much-loved husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather. So our thoughts must be with the whole Royal Family, but in particular with The Queen at this difficult time."

    I am a Councillor on Tunbridge Wells Borough Council and I reported to the Overview & Scrutiny Committee at our March meeting that we had to be vigilant when Hong Kongers with BN(O) status start to arrive in the country in family groups. I warned, with hate crime on the rise even in Tunbridge Wells, the Community Safety Team had to be alert to people being attacked for their ethnicity. Hate crimes had risen locally by 3.2% since last year due in part to the initial portrayal on the media that the Chinese were responsible for the spread of the "Wuhan virus".
