Doreen Lawrence

Posted on

I’ve just read breaking news that Mrs. Doreen Lawrence is to be made a Baroness.

I’m not generally speaking in favor of peerages but on this occasion I am more than willing to make an exception.  I cannot think of a more deserving person.

Doreen Lawrence has led a legal & media campaign to find out what happened to her son, Steven Lawrence who was killed in 1993 in a racist attack which was not investigated properly at the time by an institutionally racist Police Force.  This woman and her family should be thanked by everyone (black, white and any other ethnicity you could mention) for the efforts she has put into the campaign.

I am a huge admirer of Doreen Lawrence for her dignity in quite adverse circumstances; she deserves recognition and I applaud the Labour Party (in this case) for recommending her.
