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…

      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.

        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?

    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.

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