Toby Perkins – 2021 Comments on Clapham Common Clashes

The comments made by Toby Perkins, the Labour MP for Chesterfield, on 13 March 2021.

The scenes in London are appalling.

Police face very difficult job but they’ve got it hopelessly wrong.

This was a peaceful vigil and given the circumstances should have been policed far most sensitively.

This moment was about violence against women and that mustn’t be lost.
