Charles Kennedy throws down gauntlet

While the other two parties are engaged in a bidding war over race in the guise of immigration the Lib Dems have made a clever move:

“Earlier this week Charles Kennedy's party launched their 'manifesto for ethnic minorities' with a promise to make his party the natural home of the black vote. In an echo of Labour's six election pledges, the Lib Dems unveiled their 'top five policies for ethnic minorities.' The Lib Dems pledged to. A Single Equalities Act, Prioritise human rights and respect for international law, Create confidence in the immigration system, and target New Deal cash to improving job skills for ethnic minorities.”
