LONDON’S GREEN MEP SPEAKS OUT AGAINST TERRORIST PLOT
London’s Green MEP and Walthamstow resident Jean Lambert has today spoken out against last weeks alleged terrorist plot and the arrests in the local area following the incident.
Praising Walthamstow’s local community Jean who has lived in the area for over thirty years said; “As a Walthamstow resident, I share in the shock that the whole community is feeling following the arrests last week of suspects said to be linked to an alleged terrorist plot.
“These threats affect all of us and we need to respond as a community. Those who pose the threat are very small in number and do not represent the religion they claim as their motivation.
“Waltham Forest has much to be proud of in terms of its community relations and this has come as the result of much hard work over the years and I am sure this will continue.
“Like many others, I shall be waiting to see just how accurate the intelligence information has been on this occasion.”
Jean has been Green MEP for the area since 1999 and was named top MEP for her work on Justice and Human Rights at the end of last year.
