BANG straight on the attack with the assumptions.

What's your take on celebrating diversity?

I don't have a problem with his political agenda seems fair enough to me not sure how much impact the mayor can have though.

However I hate that phrase "celebrate". Probably because I am a miserable old git but why do we have to "celebrate diversity". Can we not just acknowledge it and move on, I don't celebrate being a fat old white man, I just am.

 


One more point

In a diverse borough such as Croydon I think it's to be celebrated.

Just interesting that you focused on that rather than 'encouraging civic pride', 'harnessing the talent of local fundraisers' and 'celebrating small businesses to help 'the local economy, providing services, jobs and opportunities for our residents, and making the town and district centres the vibrant and prosperous places'.

He also seems to have a solid CV when it comes to public service.

So what is your issue exactly?

Sutton & Croydon Guardian focussed on that too as their headline was "New Croydon Mayor to back local business and celebrate diversity"

Methinks you were just looking for an argument

Good cut and paste job there lol
If your so clever tell me what is celebrating
Diversity. Let's get to the nuts and bolts of what it means.
I just see a bunch of people all living with each other , the mayor must see somthing different.

As for the other stuff that sounds like the same stuff every politician and previous mayor has said before, just empty words and very very boring.

Firstly, do you realise what quoting it? I'm not sure my university ever told me off for 'copying and pasting' when I was citing something during my work but I guess we live in the internet age of the moron now.

Celebrating diversity means embracing those different to you in your local environment and community. That can be anything such as acknowledging and learning about/respecting festivals or days of other religions/nationalities/belief systems, supporting local businesses such as restaurants of other cuisines, and basically just being an open, welcoming, respectful and friendly person to people different to you.

Difference is something to be celebrated. We are not all the same.

It means that he isn't White and wants the non White vote.

Isn't it wonderful to be told about 'celebrating diversity' from an individual who chooses to live in Essex.

Embrace people that are different? What about people that are the same or embracing everyone as I've been brought up to do.
Why should I have to celebrate somthing to show respect for other people of croydon?

I'm an atheist and don't want to get envolved in people's festivals doesn't mean I have an less respect for them.

I am "welcoming, respectful and a friendly person to people different me" it's called living your life. But celebrate?
