A Brighton BARONESS has defended her call for a 6pm male curfew following the disappearance and death of Sarah Everard

Baroness Jenny Jones of Moulsecoomb spoke at the House of Lords Wednesday night as peers discussed domestic abuse legislation

She said: “The week Sarah Everard was kidnapped and believed to have been killed for remains found in a field in Kent, I would argue that I could actually table an amendment for adequate legislation at the next opportunity after 6pm creating a curfew for men on the street

“I think this would make women a lot safer and it would reduce discrimination of any kind” ”

It comes after reports that the Metropolitan Police have advised women not to venture into the part of south London where Ms. Everard is from alone as they have been knocking on doors to speak to people as part of their investigation

On Sky News, Baroness Jones defended her testimony at the House of Lords, saying, “I sat in a debate about domestic violence for several days and then the Met Police advice came through that women should stay home

“Nobody makes a fuss when the police suggest women stay home, but men will be in their arms if I suggest it

“I just think men don’t understand the pressures women are under. If this provoked an intense test, I’m really happy” ”

She added that banning men from leaving the house “is not a Green policy” and said her proposal for a curfew is not “entirely serious”

Baroness Jones said: “I am just trying to emphasize that when the victim blames the police by asking women to stay home, we are not responding, but when I suggest it to men, everyone is in the arms

One Twitter user described her call for curfew as “hypocrisy” and “the most ridiculous thing I’ve read in a long time”
