FFS: House of Lords welcomes Doreen Lawrence


The mother of murdered teenager Stephen Lawrence yesterday took her seat as a peer in the House of Lords.

Doreen Lawrence will sit as a Labour member of the Upper House using the title Baroness Lawrence of Clarendon. She swore allegiance to the Queen in a short ceremony flanked by her supporters – former Labour minister Lord [Paul] Boateng and Lib Dem Baroness [Floella] Benjamin.

Her elevation to the Lords comes after a 20-year fight for justice for her son, who was stabbed to death at the age of 18 in a racist attack in London.

David Cameron announced her peerage back in August when he revealed a list with 30 new members of the Lords.

And yesterday, Ed Miliband wrote on Twitter: 
‘Incredibly moving to see Doreen Lawrence introduced as a peer.
'A unique voice against injustice.’
Mrs Lawrence, who says her stomach turns ‘double somersaults’ when she thinks about her new role, now wants to use the position to work with communities at grassroots level to create change and opportunities.

  2. 'Patsy' Rosa Parks, Charlatan Michael King, Terrorist Nelson Mandela, Saint Steven Lawrence are all bogus anti-racist icons invented by the jew.. It was black American hero Jessie Owens who was allowed to sit as a free man, in the front seats of Berlin buses and fraternize with the locals in 1936. Yes, it was Jessie Owens who said to his dying day, that his proudest moment in life was shaking hands with Adolf Hitler. It was Jessie Owens who was not invited to the racist White House after the Olympics, by Roosevelt (ex slave trading jewish Rosenfeld family). I am fed up with pious jewish claptrap criminal history. Farrakhan is correct when he argues that the jew only likes blacks when it suits their interests.
