A wannabe Tory councillor has defended “offensive” social media comments where she called murdered Stephen Lawrence a violent drug dealer.'Wannabe'...? What's up, Newsshopper? Can't spell 'prospective'?
“All this Stephen Lawrence stuff gets on my tits,” Ms Sillick wrote in the comments of a Facebook group thread. She added: “He was a drug dealer who used violence to get what he wanted. My own father witnessed him going into a shop and demanding cigarettes he used a knife to threaten the member of staff behind the counter and ordered her to hand over hundred or pounds worth of cigarettes.”
The potential councillor claims Stephen also threatened a young girl with a knife at the shop where her dad worked.Oh dear! Predictably, the media & opposition party is now whipping up a storm.
Ms Sillick defended the comments when approached by News Shopper.
She said: “I stand by them. Not that anyone deserved to be killed. My dad was working at the Co-op in Eltham when this happened.”I suspect that won't last. How long before she apologises, withdraws & deletes her social media account, I wonder?
