New Diane Abbott Maths Fail: Local Elections Special

Diane Abbott is asked by ITN if she knows how Labour are doing in the local elections:

Reporter: Do you know the number of net losses so far for Labour?

Diane Abbott: At the time of doing this interview I think the net losses are about 50.

Reporter: There are actually 125 net losses so far.

Abbott: Well the last time I looked we had net losses of about 100 but obviously this is a moving picture.

Expect Diane to be asked a numbers question every single time she’s near a reporter until June 8…

Quote of the Day

“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.”
