The Conservative party candidate for London's 2020 Mayoral election, Shaun Bailey, said that the Asian community is an example he looks up to, denying his intention to 'attack' the community or Britain's multiculturalism. “If I could say anything to any other communities, I would ask them to follow the Asian community's model of family – you have people in your family who are professionals, you grow up seeing such ideals. Those things make a difference.
At the core of my belief, is income- work and family- they are the protective factors. I will make London a city where everybody has a stake, where it is easy to find a job, and the best place to set up a business. There is nothing like financial stress to keep your family apart.”
