Leaked: Diane Abbott’s Question Time Preparation Notes

It’s amazing what you can find in a photocopier in SW1:

Drafted by Abbott’s staffer Gabe Trodd a former government spinner it is incredibly patronising given that Diane has been a TV professional since Gabe was wearing nappies.

Guido particularly enjoyed the preparation for dealing with “Dimbelby” (sic), the “listen to, write down and refer to the names of people that ask questions”, and the advice to at least try and look as if you’re not reading the “lines to take” notes from Labour HQ…

    Are MPs really that thick?

    Or are we for listening to them?

    I can just see her reciting her 100 reasons why Boris has let London down, one after the other, while no one does anything to stop her.

    Andrew Efiong says:

    Aha! Looks like she’s been flushed out as a phoney, needing tips on basic manners from a lackey.

    Gabe Trodd is on the run now. If he can’t handle a photocopier, his career won’t go very far!

    Oh, Gabe, one thing:

    next time, keep your instructions on one page.

    That’s basic.

    jgm2 says:

    She might read up on them but she’s prone to go off message once she gets in there.

    ‘Black women will go to the wall for their kids….’

    A Doctor writes in layman's terms says:

    Rolling eyes upwards is a sign of a proper thicko.

    They are trying to remember what to say or have been coached to say in certain circumstances. It is involuntary, like blushing, so she is unable to hide her dimness by doing homework. In fact, too much studying only makes the reflex action worse, depending on the persons level of idiocy, which with Abott, is high.

    Come off it.
    The whole of question time is one rehearsed farce with a bussed in audience.
    The questions have all been bandied about by the participants beforehand.
    That Abbott has to have a prepared list of Labour directives does come as a bit of a shock, since they will probably have been changed by the time she goes on air.
    “Lets hear from the stooge with his hand up at the back”

    Save them from what? Or for what?

    I used to love the circus as a kid. Lions and tigers and elephants and seals and stuff that you wouldn’t see in Birmingham. Now all they have are fucking horses and dogs. I can look out the fucking window and see horses and dogs. And rabbits [… stand by…] and dead rabbits.

    The last time I saw a proper circus – one with lions and tigers was, ironically for Diane, in the Caribbean. Kids loved it.

    Fucking bedwetters. Make my piss boil.

    The problem with Diane is that she’s thick. But she doesn’t realise it. She can’t keep to the script because she thinks that an intellectual giant such as herself should be able to mix it with Brillo and Portillo. So she goes off message and reveals herself as an idiot.

    Fucking classic watching Brillo stick the boot in once he got fed up of her.

    At least Harman knows she’s an idiot so she sticks to the script.

    Have you read the B-BBC site? There is an interesting post on there in which a prospective audience member was asked to submit Q’s which including the French Election and St George’s day question.

    Two points – space was found for this person on the already full event (might be a genuine reserve), but the fact that these two topics appear on the Trodd list (particularly the St George’s day one), makes me wonder if Abbott was tipped off by the BBC (production co).

    Seems like the BBC might be too close to Labour !!!

    Parallel universe.

    Dear Caroline,
    We did invite you on to the Today program for tomorrow to talk about how not having enough green energy subsidy has led to a blood shortage in the capitol.

    However, we have now decided you’re nothing but a deluded Marxist who treats your beliefs as if they were a religion and you refuse to allow either truth or reality to intervene in your totally unrealistic, poverty inducing, harmful agenda.

    Therefore we have decided to withdraw your invitation as we are having Nigel Farage on instead to talk about how it would be better if no more UK money was sent to the IMf to prop up the failed Euro.

    We feel that his impressions better reflect the general opinions of our viewers and conform better to BBC policies and guidelines than your rather harebrained, expensive, collectivised eco-friends of the earth left overs from the ancient ecology hippy movement.

    In the early eighties I was canvassed outside a polling station by a young, slim and sexy Diane Abbot. Just shows to go, if the prudent young man wants to know what he’s marrying he should take a good look at his future mother in law.

    If a white MP had said something similar about white mums there would have been non-stop BBC outrage and her career would have been finished.

    Diane Abbott – racist.
    BBC – double standards
    Labour Party – hypocrisy

    Dimbletwit should be removed from the panel;he does nothing to control them when they interrupt the co-panellist who is answering the question & last night there were 3 of them all speaking/shouting at the same time.Dimble did nothing with the result that it was impossible to hear what was being said by any of them.

    One would think that a professional politician would have an opinion on all of these matters without having to be prompted first. That’s what they are paid for.

    “Rolling eyes upwards is a sign of a proper thicko. ”

    I thought it was an indicator that psychologists and interrogators look for because it’s a tell-tale that the eye-roller is lying.

    Anyway – back to QT. There was a pretty young Afro-Caribbean lady in the audience who slapped both Abbott and the equally loathsome Toynbee down a treat on the Newham Council issue. It was a delight in an otherwise boring show (not even Farage managed to bring some life to it on this occasion) and it’s well worth a trip to iPlayer to watch, from about three-quarters of an hour in for about seven minutes. The look on Toynbee’s boat race when the “final solution” was thrown back at her had me in raptures.

    Mike Hunt says:

    Labour were head and shoulders up Murdochs arse – they were so in love with him it defied belief – right up until he switched support from Labour to the Tories. Then, as we now know from the Leveson Enquiry, it was “You’ve declared war on my government so I’m declaring war on you,” like a spoiled bully-boy petulant child who’s had his ball taken away.

    She is not my favourite politician. I always think she looks very slovenly, as though she is speaking from a reclining position because she hasn’t the energy to look alert. Perhaps her script writer feels the same, given nature of his advice to her.

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
