Meet Kamran Hussain

Welcome to my website.

 

I believe that every child has unique potential and as a Liberal I want to work to ensure that Liberal ladders of opportunity are planted so everyone can reach their potential.

 

I want you to join with me to ensure that a strong diverse Liberal Democrat voice is heard here in Leeds and nationally to champion those opportunities.

 

One of the greatest things about the Liberal Democrats is that they believe that no one shall be enslaved by conformity. I believe that this is a great Liberal value and that we should all shout about from the rooftops and say to every child born: be who you want to be, do what you want to do and don’t let society tell you who you are or put barriers in your way to what you can achieve.

 

I am proud that this country is enriched with diversity and that people are given equal opportunities to succeed irrespective of their gender, religion, race, colour, disability, sexual orientation or gender identity. I believe in building bridges between the various communities and not creating walls. And throughout my life, I am proud to say I have brought people together.

 

I was lucky to be born into a Liberal family. And it is the liberal values that I want my two young children to learn as they grow up in this world. As parents, we want our children to enjoy the benefits that we have enjoyed, from having a good education to travelling abroad. And a good education is a key to opening doors.

 

I was lucky to have attended local catholic schools. I was the first in my family to attend university. I am now a managing partner in a Headingley (Leeds) based law firm and have recently been nationally recognised for my work. I am proud to have beaten off competition from across the UK to win The British Muslim Awards 2018.

 

I am passionate about Europe and was privileged to lead the EU Referendum Campaign for Yorkshire and Humber Liberal Democrats. I believe that we are stronger, safer and better together and our children should continue to enjoy the opportunities that we have taken for granted.

 

The British public are quite right to be worried about the future. Brexit has brought uncertainty, NHS is lacking the funding it needs, and we are becoming less safe in our communities. In our proud nation, divisions sadly do exist, between the rich and poor, north and south and of course leave and remain areas. Brexit has brought these differences to the forefront. The Conservative Government, which is engulfed in deep divisions has made a mess of the negotiations. And our children will suffer the consequences.

 

I believe the Government must rise above internal political divisions and work with others to ensure that we can reach a deal that is both workable and in the interests of our children. And the deal, should ultimately be put to the people in a people’s vote. And if the people decide that the deal is not good enough, then they should have the option to Exit from Brexit and remain in the European Union.

 

Thank you for taking the time to visit my website.

Knife Crime is a nationwide problem and not just a London problem

More than 100 people were admitted to hospitals in Leeds with knife wounds last year as the number of serious stabbings surged again. NHS figures show knife injuries have increased by nearly a third (31 per cent) since 2012/13, when the figure stood at 80. The number had remained steady at between 70 and 85 since then, before jumping to 105 last year.

Kamran Hussain, Liberal Democrat PPC for Leeds North West said,

"The figures from the NHS only include people who were fully admitted to hospital. Many more victims will have received treatment in A&E before being discharged, gone somewhere other than a hospital, or not bothered to get medical help at all.

These figures show England’s knife crime epidemic has infected communities far and wide outside London.

The Prime Minister’s failure to grip this herself now shames her office. In reality she should be apologising for the mistakes she made as Britain’s longest serving Home Secretary, especially her brutal cuts to police budgets.

We demand better for the victims of knife crime and their families.

We need more police, significant investment in youth services and a reduction in the use of school exclusions – as part of a comprehensive public health approach to tackle the rise in violent crime.”
