The main political parties in Bromley came together to show their opposition to pro-fascist rally on Saturday 4th November by the far-right political group “Britain First”.
In a unique display of unity, the Conservative, Labour, Liberal Democrat and Green parties issued a joint statement:
“We have put party politics aside to come together in united opposition to the appearance of a fascist group walking through our town. We stood together in quiet solidarity in Bromley on Saturday to make it clear that this group does not represent the views of the people of Bromley. We are an inclusive and all-embracing community in Bromley, we are enriched by our friends, family and work colleagues who come from all corners of the world, who represent all religions and all ethnic backgrounds. They are part of our community and we will stand resolute against anyone who seeks to divide us.”
Bromley parents were left shocked on 2 October when they turned up to their local health visitor drop in baby clinics only to find them closed without warning. The service had previously been run by Bromley Healthcare as part of the health visiting services but these services were moved to Oxleas trust on 1 October after the contract had quietly been put out to tender by the Council earlier this year.
