Diane Abbott Talks Up London Mayor Bid

As if Gorgeous George was not bad enough, Diane Abbott is flirting with a run at London mayor. She has been coy about the possibility before, today telling Progress why she would be a choice candidate. For some reason she is against Labour’s plan for a primary, insisting “it doesn’t make any sense”. Obviously not because of how it would affect her bid.

“I wouldn’t rule it out… [London is] much more interested in and much more positive about diversity and multiculturalism. The political consequences of austerity [will be key]. Londoners don’t want a party hack. Big cities never want a party hack. They want someone who’s independent, who will stand up for them.”

Divide and rule…

      Yes, similar to the Peter Principle. I’m feeling intensely enriched in my super diverse multi-cultural shithouse of a Country and look forward to never having to go to Londonistan again.

          Poor girl me.
          Every meeting needs a short walk to and from the car or tube.
          Every walk will have traps.
          A cake shop here a take-away there.
          Next the public will be turning up offering food.
          I can’t resist.

          Remember, remember David Blaine with his hunger stunt. Everyone and everyone came and cheered at him. They included my natural supporters.

          Can I last.

          When the going gets tough I get eating. That is what I like doing. Standing for mayor is just an inconvenience I must take to thoroughly have my cake and eat it.

          So open your mouth and take it.

          Supporters supporters do as you wish and I’ll be pleased.

      A little bit of Rothbard’s Law, too.

      You look to figure out what your greatest strengths are, and what your greatest weaknesses are.

      Unfortunately for you, it turns out your weakest ability is trying to figure out where your strengths are.

      And you end up concentrating in the area of your second-greatest weakness.

      Diane Abbott as a Shadow/Minister for Public Health.

      ‘Nuff said.

      As I did my ‘white flight’ from the capital quite a few years ago and can barely stand to go back the festering, violent, shit-encrusted, multicultural hell-hole, I fully support Ms Abbot in her mayoral quest.

      I think it would be fucking hilarious.

        It would be hilarious to see either of those fat fucks face Dave at PMQs. I tell you what would be funnier still, would be to see the salad-dodger herself, Fatbot, standing – that’s right: standing not sitting on her fat arse – at the despatch box, playing the victim when put in her place by Dave. Up and down, up and down with her spurious and indignant allegations of wacism, sexism, fatism etc.

        Abbot for party leader. How many boxes would she tick FFS?!

    My god woman put down the fork. Choose a salad every now & then.

    Just because the poor bloody taxpayer pays for every mouthful you guzzle down does not mean you have to be an absolute lard arsed glutton.

    Obscene that a Labour MP should consume more than their fair share when many are in poverty & indeed starving around the world.

          At the airport, the Greek immigration officers asked her some questions:

          Greek: Nationality?
          Angela: German

          Greek: Occupation?
          Angela: Nein, I vill be here just for two days, jah.

      SERIOUS POINT ABOUT CONSUMPTION :

      Are we all aware today marks the day when the globe has officially utilised all that it has produced this year and we are only at august .

      which means for the next four and a bit months we will be consuming from next years output etc etc .

      apparently this over consumption has been going on since 1986.

      If the lazy sponging students didn’t think Abbott was worth £1750, why did they book her, and why complain now?
      They shouldn’t expect something for nothing and should pay back the £200 that the taxpayers paid for her train and taxis.

      I wonder if the problem is not that the £1750 was a fee, but that it was the cost of her dinner.

      In my day students would give no platform to r@cists. Makes sense now.

    “Why would London want..”

    Thanks to unfettered immigration, the average Londoner’s IQ is now substantially lower than in many other British cities (although LibLabCon are working to address that, in the wrong way).

    So, when London’s population of dribbling retards see another dribbling retard standing for election, they scurry home and start filling in those postal vote forms. Or wipe their bottoms with them, or maybe both.

    Terrorist channel fined says:

    The broadcasting watchdog Ofcom has fined an Islamic TV channel £85,000, for inciting violence.

    It ruled in December that Noor TV had breached broadcasting codes after a host said it was acceptable or even the duty of a Muslim to murder anyone who disrespected the Pr*phet M*hammed.

    Ofcom said the fine imposed today was so large due to the serious nature of the breaches.

    But it stopped short of revoking the channel’s licence.

    Noor TV, which is owned by Al Ehya Digital Television, broadcasts both in the UK and internationally on Sky.

    The programme in question, Paigham-e-Mustafa, was broadcast on 3 May 2012.

    Presenter Allama M*hammad Farooq Nizami answered questions from viewers around the world about a wide range of issues relating to Islam.

    One caller asked what the punishment was for anyone showing disrespect for Pr*phet M*hammad.

    Nizami answered that “there is no disagreement about this. There is absolutely no doubt about it that the punishment for the person who shows disrespect for the pr*phet is death.”

    He also justified the actions of Mumtaz Qadri – the bodyguard who assassinated the P*njab Governor Salmaan Taseer in 2011, on the grounds that he objected to Mr Taseer’s calls to amend the country’s controversial blasphemy law.

    As well as the fine, the channel was ordered to broadcast a statement of Ofcom’s findings and must not repeat the programme.

    In July, Ofcom fined the TV channel DM Digital £85,000, after it broadcast a speech by an Islamic scholar who said Muslims had “a duty to kill” anyone who insulted the Pr*phet M*hammad.

    Always thought that the bbc pulled a fast one with fatbot and Portillo on TW.

    It gave fatbot, despite her inability to answer a question with any degree of intelligence (unless it was about herself or her ‘community’), a weekly public profile and kept her name in the public eye which would always have a positive effect for her and libore when in the polling booth.

    Whereas the Conservative Portillo for all his wit and constructive answers the cumulative effect of his exposure had no agency at the polling booth as he no longer stood for parliament.

    So quite an imbalanced balance.

Dan Hodges on Team Miliband:

“‘Poisonous’, was the picture painted by one former senior advisor. ‘Dysfunctional,’ said one shadow cabinet member. ‘A bunch of medieval courtiers, not an office,’ said another. The most positive description I could get was ‘It’s a work in progress. They’re learning. Slowly. But they are learning.’”



Nick Clegg says:

Do you want lies with that?
