We can do without Abbott

Have your say

Jeremy Corbyn’s “old bit on the side” Diane Abbott has opened her trap yet again. She tells us that the Brexit vote was fuelled by racists who did not like seeing people who look ‘foreign’ on their streets, is that from personal experience perhaps?

Abbott, Labour’s health spokesperson, said ‘people who talk Brexit’ had ‘attacked and assaulted’ ethnic minority voters and East Europeans after the referendum.

Not one Brexiteer I know has ever assaulted anyone to my knowledge.

Responding to her comments, Tory MPs from ethnic minorities accused her of making ‘totally inflammatory’ claims that smeared Leave voters as ‘stupid and racist’ when they simply wanted to take back control of Britain’s borders.

Abbott of course wants more immigration.

Remember? This is the same Diane Abbott that also told us she abhorred public schools yet promptly sent her own kids to one when she thought we were not looking.

She’s the kind of Labour MP we could certainly manage without.

Labour is unelectable not because of Jeremy Corbyn but because of stupid people like Abbott.
