Abbott: “Extraordinary” China Criticised Over Hong Kong

Freed from the shackles of Shadow Cabinet scrutiny, Diane Abbott has been able to go completely off the rails. In a Zoom chat last week entitled “Trump’s War on China”, Abbott joined former MP Emma Dent Coad among others to attack Trump and defend China. Abbott claimed that the PM’s Hong Kong citizenship offer is driven by Anti-Chinese views rather than a will to defend Hong Kong; and China can’t be criticised for crushing freedom because Hongkongers couldn’t vote under the British Empire. Forgetting their 1997 rights of independent courts, burgeoning democracy and extensive protections of civil liberties…

Abbott’s assertions weren’t challenged by any of her fellow Chinese Communist Party appeasing comrades, one of whom – Labour NEC member Rachel Garnham – later called for a statue to be erected of the former Shadow Home Secretary. Chairman Abbott laughed along, approving of the cultural revolution. 破四旧.

Diane Abbott Accuses White People of Playing “Divide and Rule”… Again

Eight years on from Diane’s infamous “white people” Twitter rage, Abbott has again returned to making sweeping racial statements, reiterating her infamous “White people love playing divide and rule” claim. Last month in a private Zoom call discussion with left-wing BAME Labour members – including Faiza Shaheen, Zarah Sultana, Clive Lewis and Bell Ribeiro-Addy – Abbott argued the leaked Labour report proved white people play the divide and rule card:

“We need unity between black, Asian, minority ethnic and Muslim people – we need the maximum public show of unity. Because time after time in the past 32 years I’ve seen efforts of people to organise disrupted by white people playing the ‘divide and rule’ card, and this time we can’t allow that to happen.”

Guido would have thought that logically it is her call for non-white unity that is divisive …

Now Corbyn Joins Abbott and Ribeiro-Addy in Another Zoom Chat for Antisemites

Last week, Keir Starmer was forced to admonish Diane Abbott and Bell Ribeiro-Addy for taking part in a Zoom chat with a number of notorious Labour antisemites, including Jackie Walker and Tony Greenstein. His warning clearly made no difference as Guido can now reveal just a day later Abbott and Ribeiro-Addy – who this time was hosting – held a Zoom festival sharing a platform with notorious Anti-Zionist Chris Williamson supporter Lindsey German. This time the pair were joined by Jeremy Corbyn and Apsana Begum…

German – who is the convenor of Stop the War Coalition – has:

  • Claimed Israel is an “apartheid state and a “racist endeavour
  • Wrote articles denying antisemitism in Labour’s ranks
  • Claimed accusations of antisemitism in Labour are “lies and slander”
  • Claims Chris Williamson’s suspension was “unwarranted” because his remarks were not antisemitic
  • Shared content saying “Zionism is racist”
  • Shared content saying accusations of antisemitism in Labour are simply “smearing of Jeremy Corbyn”

Keir Starmer passed up the opportunity to act the first time Abbott and Ribeiro-Addy shared an online platform with antisemites, will he assert his authority this time?

Former Shadow Ministers Share Virtual Conference Platform With Expelled Over Antisemitism Jackie Walker

Last night two former Shadow Ministers – Bell Ribeiro-Addy and Diane Abbott – were caught attending a Zoom Conference in which antisemitism within the party was denied without challenge from her, Ken Livingstone was defended and former Labour Councillor Jo Bird claimed some party members had died as a result of disciplinary cases. Also in attendance was Jackie Walker, whom even Corbyn found too antisemitic to remain as a Labour member…

The chat, organised by the Labour Representation Committee was watched and photographed by journalist Lee Harpin, who claims at one stage Jo Bird alleged, “BAME disciplinary complaints were ‘deprioritised’ while antisemitism complaints were ‘prioritised’.” Another attendee visible is Tony Greenstein, who was also expelled from Labour for ‘Antisemitic bullying’ and called Israel “Hitler’s bastard offspring“. While Diane’s participation is unsurprising at this stage, is Sir Keir happy for one of his new intake to be sharing a virtual platform with such cranks, in contravention of the pledge to the Board of Deputies he signed?

UPDATE: A Labour spokesman tells The Jewish Chronicle, “This is being made clear to the Labour MPs who attended the call in the strongest possible terms and they are being reminded of their responsibilities and obligations.” That’ll tell ’em…

Diane Brushes off Bercow’s Bullying While Attacking Priti

Abbott has a record of brushing off Bercow bullying accusations, recently claiming the former speaker couldn’t have bullied Sir David Leakey as he had been in the army. Only Diane could possibly attempt to deny allegations of bullying by Bercow, whilst at the same time being on the attack over accusations against Priti Patel. Completely blind to her hypocrisy…

Sophie Ridge asks Diane Abbott, was the Corbyn leadership partly to blame for the 2019 election result?

Well I won in Hackney North and in Hackney North they love Jeremy Corbyn”
