POSTED IN Backing Diane, Campaign News, Top Stories 26.07.2010
Diane has gained the support of Black Asian and minority Labour Party in her bid to become Labour leader.
Diane, who was Britain’s first black female MP, will be the recommended choice among the group’s 4000 members.
Chair of BAME Labour, Ahmad Shazad, said today:
“Diane is not only the most experienced candidate of all, but her record of fighting for liberty and justice since her election 23 years ago, is outstanding.
Diane would make an excellent leader and Prime Minister. She is the first black person in Britain to go for leadership of a political party, which makes this a historical election.
It would be a great thing for Britain to have a black Prime Minister and BAME Labour is proud to be backing Diane for Leader.”
