Speak up for Julie Hambleton Boris! She deserves honours not humiliation
Julie Hambleton’s treatment by officious Birmingham police is a national scandal.
What a pity British politicians can’t make a better effort to secure justice for her and her co-campaigners.
They prefer to show their compassion for Afghan ladies (rightly so) and illegal immigrants in the English Channel. But for the Julie Hambletons of this world they have not the slightest interest and compassion. In any other nation she would be honoured and not publicly insulted, harassed, and humiliated.
Let Boris Johnson speak up for Julie Hambleton and the Birmingham 21. It is what we would expect from a proud British Prime Minister.
