THE NEEDS of Britain's black communities have become easy to ignore because not enough are using their vote to sway policy-makers, a think-tank of political and business leader has said.

Poor voter registration was cited as the single biggest challenge to black politics in the UK at the first of The Voice¹s Editor Forums, held on Monday, December 5.

It brought together black politicians representing the three major parties as well as business experts at Operation Black Vote (OBV) headquarters, in Bethnal Green, east London, to discuss the current state of black politics.
