Diane Abbott abstained from the Article 50 vote tonight, in defiance of Corbyn’s order to vote to trigger. Her team are briefing that she is ill. Yet last night:
Baroness Chakrabarti, Lady Nugee & Comrade Abbott ordering 2 G&Ts & a Laphroaig in The Red Lion #workersunite

And she was tweeting just two hours ago. Hmm…
UPDATE: Nick Robinson asked John McDonnell on Today “How is Diane Abbott by the way? Did she have Brexit flu?” Who hasn’t had a hangover mutate into flu?
UPDATE II: Top trolling by Chris Leslie
