Doreen Lawrence was always a lady … now it is official

A big congratulations from VinB goes out to Doreen Lawrence who will shortly join the House of Lords as a Labour Peer.

doreenDoreen Lawrence is a hero of modern Britain. The strength and courage she has shown in her fight for justice for her son Stephen has had a profound impact on attitudes to racism and policing. Her campaigning has changed, and will continue to change, our country for the better.    Labour spokesperson

  1. Good news to hear that Doreen Lawrence is now a Peer.
    Lets hope that she can open the eyes and ears of the other
    Peers in the House of Lords.

  2. This is very welcome news! What a tragic story however and a truly awful reflection on aspects of our society. And I stress “our”. We have to take responsibility and act in extraordinary ways to make it better. This woman’s fight to unpick wrongs is salutary. Three cheers for this peer!
