… there are aspects of this verdict that are perplexing and seemingly contradictory to those of who us who have carefully followed the proceedings over recent months …Because watching the news and reading ‘The Guardian’ is exactly like being in the jury box…
And if that isn't bad enough, his colleague Diane Abbott’s Tweet makes him seem like a Mastermind contestant!
The Hackney North and Stoke Newington MP, Diane Abbott, said she was baffled by the jury's finding, which she said would raise a lot of questions in the local community.
Writing on Twitter, Abbott said: "If the Duggan jury believe that he did not have a gun in his hand when he was shot, how can they find it was a lawful killing? baffled."Yes. She's 'baffled'. Well, she's not really, because surely even she isn't that dim - she just can't bring herself to do the decent thing, the thing she was elected to do, because she knows that her 'constituency' will no longer vote for her if she does.
But back to Lammy:
The frustration at what is perceived as a lack of justice will be shared by a close-knit local community that has previously endured suffering following the killings of Cynthia Jarrett, Roger Sylvester and Joy Gardner at the hands of the police.Really, Lammy? I mean, really?
Cynthia Jarrett - heart failure which, given her size, could as easily have happened at a bingo night as a police house search
Roger Sylvester - cannabis induced delirium while being restrained
Joy Gardner - asylum overstayer who resisted arrest and suffocated while being restrained to prevent her biting officers
The problems that 'the black community' (or rather the vocal minority and their hangers-on & enablers) keep claiming to experience in the pages of the 'Guardian' and 'Indy' would be alleviated somewhat if they were represented by honest, decent politicians, instead of cynical race-baiting scoundrels...
