Lammy's beyond a joke!


Hunter's mission to dislodge David Lammy, MP, received a tiny boost today when the lead article in the 'Spy' column of today's Daily Telegraph mocked the MP and Culture Minster, whose duties include promoting books, for not having a single bookshop in his Tottenham constituency. So the closure of Waterstone’s in Wood Green comes as a real blow to Tottenham residents.

Lammy responded by saying that there are bookshops in Tottenham. This comes as news to Hunter. There's a tiny cafe in Tottenham High Road with a couple of books on sale but they're all in Turkish! This is Tottenham, Mr Lammy, not Turkey. Maybe if Lammy were in Tottenham a little more often, he would be better informed?

Hunter has also set up a group on Facebook called 'Don't Re-Elect David Lammy as Tottenham's MP', which is open to people of all parties and none but think Tottenham deserves better than the hapless Lammy.

I saw that piece in the Telegraph _ Lammy's response was so lame! I hope he is suitably embarassed. How many members does the 'Don't re-elect David Lammy...' group have so far?

Maybe someone should point out to Mr Lammy that most people prefer their reading to extend beyond Janet and John...
