No crime here, just move along..

MP walks around her own constituency wearing body armor.

Harriet Harman has defended her decision to wear a stab-proof jacket during a police walkabout in her own constituency—claiming it was like donning a hard hat on a building site.

The Labour Party’s deputy leader rejected claims it suggested she did not feel safe on the streets.

Ms Harman, who is also Commons leader, said she wore the kevlar-reinforced vest as a “courtesy” to the neighbourhood policing team with whom she toured Peckham, South London.
