Lord-Lieutenant Peaches Golding, on lockdown and BLM

“So I set out the next day, to write a message to the people of the city and I set out that some people think Colston is a saint, some people think he’s the devil incarnate. Because Bristol is interesting, we have me – the Queen’s representative as a black woman, you have an elected mayor as a black man, we have the most diverse group of magistrates in the UK, here in Bristol. We have black professional networks, we have all sorts of very interesting groups of people, but we also have poverty among black communities, which is greater than the white population. It’s not to say the white population doesn’t have problems, but it’s the layer, upon layer, of disadvantage that we have an opportunity to address”.

The Lord-Lieutenant of the City and County of Bristol, Mrs Peaches Golding OBE, Her Majesty’s representative in the City and County.

Faye Dicker and Laura Rawlings, speak to Lord-Lieutenant Peaches Golding, on the impact of Edward Colston’s statue coming down and how small businesses can make a difference to when it comes to BLM.
