I met with a large delegation of constituents today.
I was deeply shocked to hear first hand about how they were kettled by violent mobs of protestors outside the Indian High Commission when they were celebrating Independence Day on the 15th August.
Peaceful Protest is a right. Hurling bottles, eggs and potatoes at children is a crime.
I have written to the Mayor’s Office and to the Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police Service to pursue the concerns I have after hearing about the breakdown in order and the appalling violence to which so many of my constituents were subjected.
