We must kick racism and religious hatred out

Antisemitism has reared its ugly head in the Labour party, as this complaint and several postings by Guido Fawkes show. It has been a feature of Conservative campaigns in certain areas though operating under the radar. At the same time, Islamophobia is all-pervasive.

The South Wales Jewish Representative Council has circulated candidates in the Welsh general election with their manifesto which includes the following calls:

Oppose all forms of hate crime, including antisemitism, anti-Muslim hatred and other types of racism, promoting and enhancing community safety;

Promote good relations, understanding and cooperation between all of Wales's communities.

I have committed to these aims and trust my fellow-candidates have done the same.
