LAMMY’S HYPOCRISY: In January, Labour’s David Lammy CRITICISED The Met Over Stop and Search
David Lammy had his PR machine at full speed today, writing for Britain’s biggest paper, The Sun to speak out against the crime and murder epidemic spreading across London.
The Labour MP for Tottenham, North London said that police and politicians had “Lost control of the drugs market and Britain’s streets.”
“My constituents are angry, they have every right to be and I am angry on their behalf.” he added.
He accused Theresa May and political leaders of burying their heads in the sand. “In the corridors of power, this tragic toll has been met with nothing but stony silence.”
The situation in London was “the worst I’ve ever seen in my 18 years as an MP.” said Lammy.
But if Mr Lammy was so concerned, why did he try to halt ‘Stop and Search?’
“Black people in England and Wales are eight times more likely to be stopped and searched than white people. Lammy said.
“The frequency with which young black men were searched left many feeling “as though they are living in a police state” and drained their trust in the justice system.”
“I am disappointed that the vexed issue of stop and search is again being used as a political football, and I have made my views clear to the mayor of London,” he said.
“We cannot continue to have different policing for different communities – it is inherently unfair – and the latest figures, published last October, show that the racial disproportionality in terms of who is being stopped and searched is actually getting worse.”
David Lammy has directly had in influence in black deaths across London.
He claimed to represent Minorites, whilst systematically halting tactics to keep Black people safe.
Labour Hypocrisy at its finest.
