In her article Butler refers to a meeting she had with Cressida Dick last week. The meeting was pre-arranged and not specifically held for the purpose of discussing her friend's police stop - yes, that's right Dawn, it was he who was stopped by the police, not you. However, despite saying that the incident was 'briefly discussed', Dawn released a statement on Friday in which the incident is the only thing discussed (see below). Here she says that her friend 'wishes to remain anonymous', but that the Met 'will indeed corroborate that the driver is a black male'. No such confirmation from the Met has arrived yet.
Butler's undoubted narcissism continues to blur her judgement. In her article she manages to namecheck George Floyd as if her friend's routine police stop is as earth-shatteringly significant as Floyd's death. She also drops a ball by confirming that the car in which she was travelling has rear tinted windows, inadvertently corroborating the fact that there is no way the police patrol could have identified the ethnicity of the driver anyway - even if he was black, which he clearly wasn't. Dawn is also now making complaints about the backlash against her on social media.
If Dawn Butler had chosen another course of action - perhaps in supporting the police and not conducting a week-long publicity drive against them - she would not currently be experiencing such a backlash. And in supporting her race baiting it's clear that the future is grim under this Labour leader.
