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…
