Stephen Lawrence Centre Vandalised

We'd been planning to write something this week about the opening of the Stephen Lawrence Centre in Deptford.

Sadly, before we've even had time to get around to it, the Centre's been vandalised, with the suspicion that the attacks were racially motivated.

We went to school with Stephen and he was a really decent guy (the disgusting attempt by the BNP to say otherwise was one of the lowest points in their long and shameful history). The Centre in his memory is a wonderful idea that deserves to flourish and, despite this setback, it will.

We will find a quieter time to write in more detail about the Stephen Lawrence Centre.
