Meet David Lammy, the most Anti-Democratic MP in the House of Commons
Say what you will about most MPs, you can generally assume they support democracy (maybe other than Diane Abbott). At least, you would like to think that. Sadly, there are a number of MPs who just haven’t quite grasped the concept of democracy. David Lammy, the Labour MP for Tottenham is one of them.
Voted against Brexit to “stop this madness”
Lammy is one of the infamous MPs to have voted against the ‘Brexit Bill’ that set out the government’s intention to invoke article 50. He claimed that he’s not “enemy of the people” … despite having voted against the people. Looks like he needs a little math lesson. Here’s a start:
52% > 48%
17,410,742 > 16,141,241
Take note Mr Lammy!
Indians who fought for Britain in WW2 fought for the “European Project”
Now I’m not going to claim I’m some ultra-smart historian or anything but in my History lessons, I’m pretty sure I was taught that the allied forces fought for peace and justice, not the “European Project”. In fact, the only “European Project” at the time was the Nazi invasion of the continent, which I seem to believe was fought against by the British army. Of course, correct me if I’m wrong there.
“My mum relied on tax credits”… before they were introduced?
In 2015, Lammy sent out this Tweet:
When I was growing up my mum relied on tax credits. Tonight in opposing the Welfare Bill I voted for millions of people who do the same.

Seems reasonable and truthful, right? Wrong. As Guido Fawkes pointed out, David Lammy was born in 1972, 31 years before tax credits were introduced in 2003. So unless David was still “growing up” with his mum when he was 31 years old, that Tweet is slightly inaccurate.
Claims unbelievably high expenses every year
As an MP who lives within half an hour of the Houses of Parliament, you’d expect Lammy to have relatively low expenses. Well, last year alone he claimed £163,858.42 in expenses. That’s more than 6 times the average UK worker’s salary!
He blocks just about everyone on Twitter
One of David’s most infamous traits is his love for the ‘block’ button on Twitter. Many UKIP, Tory and Brexit supporters have found themselves blocked by him, before even having tweeted him. That group includes myself:
Clearly, this goes against every principle of democracy and proves once again that he despises the concept.
But we don’t have to put up with this madness for much longer. Along with Diane Abbott and some of the other worst MPs, he is on the UKIP hit list. Come the next General Election, UKIP will work their butts off to get rid of each and every MP on the list. We can start this mission now, by spreading the word and sharing this article!
