I believe there needs to be more debate about the sort of society we want to live in and government’s role – this has never been more important than in the current economic climate
I believe in the power of education to change lives and I believe that our schools are the best place to promote understanding between different cultures and to protect and nurture our diversity
I believe everyone should be given an equal chance in life, irrespective of where they are born, who their parents are or the colour of their skin
