Sarah Everard was allegedly abducted whilst walking home from a friends home in Clapham, sadly her body was discovered in Kent last Wednesday and a serving Policeman has been arrested for her murder.
An official organised vigil had been cancelled because of Covid-19 regulations which would have made the event an illegal gathering and the parents of Sarah Everard had also requested the event did not take place.
However, an unofficial vigil took place last night at Clapham Common and was attended by quite a few hundred people, the majority of which seemed to be female, they gathered around the bandstand and placed flowers and lit candles, although why on earth they couldn’t wait another few weeks when it will not be illegal for so many to meet I have no idea.
Unfortunately, for those attending the Police arrived and what seems like a minor scuffle took place which resulted in four women being arrested, one of whom was Patsy Stevenson who said of the events, “I was terrified, I have never been so scared honestly.”
She was asked why she was restrained and arrested and said, “to be honest I still don’t know why I was pushed to the ground so forcefully” and continued that she was released twenty minutes after her arrest and given a £200 fine.
This event has caused quite a stir, with the Liberal Democrat Leader Sir Ed Davey asking for the resignation of the Metropolitan Police Chief, Cressida Dick, 8000 people have also signed a petition to the same effect and the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan has asked for a full enquiry by Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary.
All this seems somewhat over the top to say the least and a complete waste of time and money, to have an inquiry into an illegal event where hundreds of people took part and yet only four arrests were made, the politically correct world in which we now find ourselves is becoming more and more ridiculous with every passing day.
Just in case you missed my point although I would have thought it glaringly obvious;
ILLEGAL EVENT. HUNDREDS TOOK PART. ONLY FOUR ARRESTS.
