Diane Abbott Ate My Donation

As revealed in yesterday’s Sun, Diane Abbott took her mind off losing her shadow front-bench job last week by appearing on ITV’s Saturday night gameshow The Chase, alongside celebs Anton du Beke, Denise van Outen, and Matt Le Tissier. She didn’t do too badly, losing in the final round. As it was for charity, host Bradley Walsh generously gave her £1,000 to donate to the Sickle Cell Society. What the cameras didn’t show you however, was that Diane herself pocketed another £5,000 as an appearance fee. A shameless way of doubling the £5,533 a month she earns as an MP.

Quote of the Day

Lucy Allan explains her positive comments about the Brexit Party…

“If EU elections are held, Leave supporting voters will want to vote for Leave supporting candidates… Usual party loyalties will be eclipsed by the Leave v Remain divide. It’s good to see strong candidates in the Leave camp. However, I sincerely hope we leave the EU before these elections are held so that we can move on and not waste time and money on unnecessary EU elections.”
