Do British Values exist?
3 March 2015

A Christian, a Jew and a Muslim discussed this question from a religious point of view. The speakers were Revd Canon Dr Nigel Rooms, Director of Ministry and Mission in the Diocese of Southwell & Nottingham; Shaykh Ibrahim Mogra, Assistant Secretary General of the Muslim Council of Great Britain and Rabbi Dr Harvey Belovski, Senior Rabbi at Golders Green Synagogue and University Jewish Chaplaincy. 

In an atmosphere of grace and co-operation they each outlined their response to the question, with a common theme emerging – that some of the values, such as respect for the law, individual liberty and tolerance were universal values, and all values contained within their own faiths.
