I very much enjoyed joining others at the Al Ghazali centre for a candidate's debate yesterday.
There wasn't a massive turnout but in a way that was better as we had a real chance to have a real discussion with real questions.
I was pleased to be able to say more about my priority of dealing with "hate crime". We have to find ways of tackling this sort of crime, which means people become victims just because of who they are and the fact that they are different. This in turn means acknowledging that it exists.
Thanks again to all at the Al Ghazali for kindly organising the evening.
