The murder of schoolteacher Sabina Nessa is being shamefully exploited by Labour figures, including Sir Keir Starmer. The virtue signalling currently on display mirrors the left's reaction to the murder of Sarah Everard last year. The Everard murder was exploited purely because the suspect was a police officer and it coincided with the BLM uprising. It's less clear why they have suddenly pounced on the Nessa murder, although it's fair to say if she had been a white teacher they would not have batted an eyelid.
The hypocrisy on display here is both staggering and sickening.
Never forget that this is the same party that oversaw the largest sexual abuse scandal this country has ever seen - and undoubtedly continues to do so in local authorities up and down the land. We should also not forget that Starmer was the Director of Public Prosecutions for five years as thousands of girls were being raped across Labour authorities, including Rochdale, Rotherham, Kirklees, Oxford, Telford, and Newcastle-upon-Tyne - to name a few.
What about their names? What about their suffering? How many council houses did you light up for them? Don't they matter?
As ever these questions are met with shameful silence.
