|Fiona Onasanya, who was convicted of perverting the course of justice|
Labour MP turned into ordinary criminal
She has the luxury and the privilege of being a Member of Parliament belonging to an ethnic minority at a time when many talk about representation of ethnic minorities in the House of Commons.
She was accused of driving at more than 30 miles an hour in a 20 miles an hour zone. What would have been the rational and decent thing to do? To apologise, pay the penalty and move on with her life and her political life.
Instead, she chose to lie and not only that. She accused an innocent man of involvement and gave a false address. It didn't register in her mind that the Police would try and contact the person she falsely accused. The authorities found out that the man in question was not even in the country when the incident took place.
She was rightfully convicted of Perverting the Course of Justice - one the most serious crimes anyone can ever commit in the United Kingdom - and is due for sentencing. This individual has let down the Labour Party, has let down her constituents, has let down herself and those related to her and has become an ordinary criminal with the aggravation of having committed a crime being not just a member of the public but an elected representative.
She has proven that she is not somebody that can be trusted and she has proven that she doesn't have the moral fibre to be a Member of Parliament.
I am sure that there are many potential representatives of Black communities in the United United Kingdom that could do a much better job than this despicable individual. She is a disgrace to her own race.
