Baroness Doreen Lawrence recently declared in a Channel 4 interview that the firefighters attending the Grenfell Tower inferno in 2017 were 'racist', and her bigoted comments have sparked outrage around the country.
She said: 'I think had that been a block full of white people in there they'd have done everything to get them out as fast as possible and make sure they did what they needed to do.'
This is a disgraceful slur on the brave men and women of our emergency services, and it would have been bad enough if those words had come from an ordinary member of the public.
Coming as they did from a peer of the Realm, such words are nothing less than outrageous and unacceptable.
Following the tsunami of public outrage, she offered only a mealy-mouthed and insincere token apology, with no indication that she recognised the strength of public feeling on the matter.
Such bigotry has no place in the House of Lords, and we demand that Baroness Lawrence is stripped of her title forthwith.
