Wally of the Week: David Lammy MP

Labour’s David Lammy defends shoplifters who steal luxury goods

 

In a pamphlet published this week for the Policy Exchange think tank, Tottenham Labour MP David Lammy suggested that thieves who steal from luxury stores should be given softer sentences. In grading the type of shoplifting to be related to the wealth of the victim, this wannabe Mayor of London sends exactly the wrong message and on that basis, we make him our Wally of the Week.

Mr Lammy stated:

 

“The impact of a £150 theft, for example, would be far greater on an independent corner shop than on Fortnum & Mason, yet this is not reflected under the current Act”.

 

“It is self-evident that the impact of a £200 theft to a large retailer is much smaller that it would be to a small, independent retailer”.

 

“Many rightly argue that the seriousness of shoplifting should not be based on the value, but on the impact to the victim”.

 

David Lammy might think that his policy suggestion will win him votes and turn him into some kind of Robin Hood-like hero. Luxury retailers will certainly vote to the contrary and frankly this foolish man would do well to retract this ridiculous idea.

  1. So, by this thinking, someone burgling equal value items from houses worth greater and lesser amounts should, respectively, yet conversely, be given lesser and greater sentences… ? What tosh!

  2. Cyclists ride anywhere regardless of the law……..

    It appears fashionable to be ignorant and abusive

    Disfiguring someone carries a derisory sentence

    We are now a lawless society, and that is official

    My generation have been so fortunate…………

  3. “Wally of the Week”..?! Rather: “Wally of the YEAR”.
    Who is this ‘Loony Lammy’…..? (“Major of London”…. HA! HA! HA!………… NEVER.)

    • So distracted laughing that spelling suffered, that should be “Mayor of London”, obviously! (“Mayor”, HA! HA! HA! HA!)
