“As the Leaders of the four groups on Stockport Council we were disappointed to hear that a former member of the BNP and former leader of the EDL plans to campaign in Stockport today. We believe there should be no place in our world for the politics of hatred and division that these people represent. They seek to pit person against person on the basis of race, ethnicity or beliefs and to undermine community cohesion. We are confident residents will continue to support the inclusive approach which all political groups on Stockport Council have repeatedly endorsed.
Cllr Elise Wilson, Leader of the Labour Group
Cllr Mark Hunter, Leader of the Liberal Democrat Group
Cllr Mike Hurleston, Leader of the Conservative Group
