Hardly any children haven't been mugged!

On 3 March 2008, Emily Thornberry, New Labour MP for Islington South and Finsbury, was quoted thus by The Daily Mail:

“I SUSPECT THERE ARE HARDLY ANY CHILDREN IN ISLINGTON WHO HAVE NOT BEEN MUGGED AT SOME STAGE… If you talk to kids it is the main thing they are afraid of... It is a hidden crime. Kids are robbing other kids but you don't hear about it... YOUNG PEOPLE ARE BEING MUGGED REGULARLY. WE DON'T WANT IT TO BECOME A WAY OF LIFE.”
Er, Emily, 'if hardly any children in Islington... have not been mugged', it already HAS 'become a way of life'! And the fact that it’s 'hidden' and we 'don't hear about it', well, that's down to New Labour, Emily. Your lot. That's who does its best, along with the Thought Police, to keep such damning information quiet.

Anyway, Emily, answer this question for me, would you? Why are you still a New Labour politician when it was New Labour, with a bit of help from Old Labour, the Tories and the Lib Dems, that created hell on earth for our children to live in?

It's all gone quiet over there.
