  1. Here you can see how UK justice works for our class of people.
    … Unlike – For the fragrant ones !

    1. I agree johnsco1 but race is also a major factor. If Belly had been white and middle class or maybe even just white things would have been very different.

      1. Totally Agree Smartboy! “It’s very emotional for me because I see European people with blue eyes and blonde hair being spat on” Ukraine has caused a major turning point in the exposure of Racism and for the fight against racism, which is kind of ironic.

    2. Belly Mujinga, her family, friends, and colleagues are enduring a great injustice. Sir Keith and the Tories in their own party, are unsurprisingly unbothered by such inequality experienced by “The Many” in the “justice” system.

      R.I.P. Belly Mujinga

    3. I am sorry for the victim. However, I don’t understand who is the murderer. I will send them a few Bob of course out of class solidarity but remain unclear as to whether this is a celebration or a wake. I wish the family well in their endeavours. Why the secrecy, was there no union involvement, no m.p acting for the family? I have to check this out.

  2. The death from Covid of such a young woman is tragic, particularly when she was helping others to get through the most difficult of times. It is doubly so given that someone assaulted her shortly before she became ill. Others who were similarly assaulted at this time were brought before the courts and received custodial sentences. It seems that we will never know whether or not Ms Mujinga’s death was a result of the assault. What is beyond doubt is that the fact that nobody has been held responsible for the assault must make the situation much harder to deal with, particularly in view of the racial element. Just terribly distressing.
