Diane Abbott Slept Through Meeting of Group She Quit

Chasing some sympathetic headlines in a bid to redeem her reputation, Diane Abbott has stormed out of cross party talks about abortion counselling:

“Shadow public health minister Diane Abbott said she had walked out of a new cross-party abortion group set up by the Government to look at the issue of counselling following the defeat. She accused the Government of “ploughing ahead” with the controversial abortion changes, saying the new group was a “front” for pushing through the plans which were “unwanted, undemocratic and unsubstantiated with evidence”.

Department of Health sources say they have no real view on the issue and no decision has  been made, hence the point of the cross party committee. They will take the recommendations of the group and see if the public agree. Others are slightly more confused by Abbott’s outburst.

Given that she fell asleep in the first meeting of the group, was half an hour late for the second and didn’t turn up to the third, those that did make it have been left scratching their heads about what exactly she is talking about.

Another day, another Abbott mess…

      The Central Scrutinizer says:

      She’s Dianne Abbott. She can say and do whatever the fuck she wants. Due to the confluence of her two PC traits (being a woman and of afro-caribbean origin) and being in the Labour party she has a ‘get out of jail card’ as demonstrated by the recent racist tweet of hers. She has no shame. No integrity. No humanity. She only has her leftie dogma to cling to – and most of that doesn’t actually work in the real world.

      • 156

        Well said. Abbott is the prime example of gesture politics, promoted within the labour party and given an uncritical platform by the media, not because she has anything worthwhile to say, but simply because she ticks two very important boxes. Surely even SHE must realise how patronised she is?

          …….and being Liebour she ticks the third box of being an ugly biatch. Guido’s picture of her just about sums her up.

    She’s incompetent. If she was white, she’d have been sacked by now.

      Falling asleep on the job says:

      The context for sleeping is on your own time not whilst being paid by the taxpayer to do your job. If she makes a habit of this she should be de selected.

    Is that anti white, anti British racist still in the Labour party?

    Proves that Ed Miliband and Labour hold black people to lower standard thresholds than they do whites.

    If Abbott was white and made the same comments about blacks she would be sacke and probably on her way to court and prison right now.

    One rule for them.

    And what about Ed Milimong? He’s now complaining because Dave is telling the Eurozone countries what they should do and he thinks Dave should concentrate on Britain.

    Yet it was only Days ago that Ed was complaining that Dave was not involved enough in the Eurozone. The man is mad.

    Re Block Ed’s nose. If you sniff coke shortly after you’ve had a nose job, the stitches dissolve and your nose will collapse just like Ed’s. In clean-living Ed’s case its because he’s had a PIP nose implant that has dissolved and leaked into what passes for his brain.

    Continuing the earlier discussion about the virtues of Arnie’s action flicks with Tessa Tickles, Eraser, whilst fun, is nowhere near his best. For sheer lulz, you can’t beat Commando, where he kills hundreds of bad guys, or True Lies, where he kills hundreds of muzee terrorists. Politically incorrect and delightfully violent.

    labourunionsbbc we are one says:

    The British Prime Minister goes to Davos, makes an important speech (important to those in the British Isles that care anyway) The British Broadcasting Company who’s prime objective when it comes to British news is to give that news unadulterated to the British people, no?
    What does the British Broadcasting Company do on its midday World at One program: it puts it way down the list and then instead of letting the British people hear what the Prime Minister had to say, it asks a posturing, little privileged socialist (the offspring of a labour peer) what HE’S take on what the Prime Minister said!!!!
    Who gives a fuck what the liboore party thinks of what he said, why don’t they let the people hear what he said and form their own opinion.
    Then they could sack the affected prattling nonce, we don’t need him, and save us all some money.

    I realise that Labour lost 100 seats at the last election, but the party still has more than enough MPs of sufficient calibre to keep Abbott out of the shadow cabinet. Like Balls, she is one of those MPs who loses her party votes whenever she appears on television.

    If Miliband were not so weak he would have sacked her by now.

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
