David Lammy: then and now

Paul Waugh’s blog in the Evening Standard has a post contrasting what Labour MP David Lammy used to say about Baby P’s death with what he’s now saying:

November 19, BBC Radio 4’s World At One programme:

“Over the course of the weekend, 61 headteachers that have more experience than you or I, or Lynne Featherstone, have offered their reassurance that they feel Haringey has been protecting children.

December 1, BBC News 24:

“Clearly lessons have not been learned. I think it is right that there is new leadership in Haringey. This is a very dark and sad day for the people of Haringey. In relation to young, vulnerable children who need protection, there have been deep failures. The report was littered with the words, ‘inadequate’, ‘poor’, ‘management failures’. Against that backdrop, we need change. Change that must now come as a result of this inquiry.”
