I meant to do it last week, but didn’t get around to it. When I saw Dave Hill’s marvellous article on the Grauniad’s CiF, I knew that I had been tardy.
If only to increase the total number of signatories by 1, it’s worth it, but it’s also important to live by the manifesto as well as support it:
1) An end to communal politics
2) Against prejudice
3) For equality
4) We believe in freedom of speech
5) We are for respecting people’s multiple identities
6) A new national conversation about race
I can’t think of anyone on the ‘progressive’ side of politics who should fail to support these aims.
