Martin if this had been any other meeting you could not have said a thing
it is only because its a Respect meeting that you are saying a word
I have seen the same thing happen at many other meetings and would
no doubt happen at LibDem meetings if a large number of of women
from the Asian Community attended
There is no evidence that the meeting was segregated other the by
the choose of the women
No doubt the organisers will make sure that it does not happen again that
a photograph would give that impression I have seen several other photos
of that meeting showing women and men mixing happly
Don't forget there was female on the platform and speaking and
taking part in the meeting
You Martin are just political mud throwing
