Doreen Lawrence has led a long campaign to find out what happened to her son,
who was killed in 1993.

The BBC's Danny Shaw said the nomination had been agreed by party leader Ed
Miliband and put forward to Downing Street in a list of recommendations

That's it, **** it, I'm becoming a republican.
Stand by for her to become a permanent feature on all and any BBC talk shows, news and current affairs programmes.

I feel a poll is in order. That way we on here can make our feelings known without resorting to vilification and locked threads. A poll with less said is more telling than trolling.

Now the outrage bus is ticking over and full of the easily distracted it will be interesting to see who else is on the list when it is published.

My money is on a few big financial donors from all sides.

Jesus H Christ!

A nasty little crime committed by some nasty little scrotebags.

...but, god, she has played the victim well and gone on, and on, and on, (repeat to fade).

Why doesn't she move to Italy and fight the racism cause there including the first black minister?

Of course, had the met investigated the matter properly in the first place then perhaps she wouldn't have had to "play the victim" for quite so long.

Just a thought.

I suspect her appearance at the John Terry trial was to further her reputation and political aims... Although I don't remember her saying anything about Rio Ferdinands comments in twitter... Anyway... If she wants to be a peer and a force against racism... Send her to Luton!
