Diane Abbott's £300 Obesity Bill

You cannot help but laugh at this one. KFC-hating fatty food banner Diane Abbott has been paid £300 to give a speech at the National Obesity Forum annual conference. During her speech she said that the government “places too much emphasis on personal responsibility, without acknowledging that many people do not have the social capital or skills to tackle their own obesity”.

The poor are too stupid to look after themselves, eh Diane? Quite why a Shadow Health Minister is charging money to give speeches on, er, health Guido can’t quite work out. Surely she should do it for free…

Quote of the Day

Andrea Leadsom told BBC Radio 4’s Today

“He’s made his views on Brexit on the record, and the problem with that of course is that the chair’s impartiality is absolutely essential. … He’s made his views known on Brexit… it’s a matter for him but nevertheless it’s a challenge and all colleagues need to form their own view of that.”
