It means, he’s not telling you who paid for his holiday. 
 

Let’s hope that the “thick “ Labour Party don’t let him get away with his deception

Are you paid too much? When I was younger. Now I have no idea what that might mean.

I see the Beeb is reporting that Diane Abbott will quit the Front Bench under the new leader.

A bit disappointing for us Tories, she gave us a great deal of  pleasure, not least with her Maths !

It’s just that Diane Abbott does. She has a  History degree from Newnham  College. At the time, she was quite a rarity at Cambridge. Working class black girls simply didn’t get to go there at the time.

 

I find all the Abbott bashing in the media and on social media, rather distasteful.

Oh don't be so petty, she is an embarrassment to the Labour Party, and has finally realised that she is better off away from the front bench.

So what?  All that reinforces is that degrees aren't worth the paper they're written on!

 

And besides her 2.2 (snigger), what bearing does it have on her ability to count or do her job in the shadow cabinet?

I have a degree but it doesn't automatically mean I'm qualified or skilled to be an MP.

Why do you think she was an embarrassment to anyone? Given her accomplishments I'd say everyone should be proud that we have people like her among us.

What's going on with her charity?

 

Diane Abbott Foundation spent nearly £30,000 on awards ceremony, accounts reveal

Diane Abbott spent virtually all her education charity’s annual budget on an awards ceremony event in Parliament that cost nearly £30,000, the organisation’s accounts have revealed.

What happened after that is a bit of a mystery.

 

The 'Events' section on the charity's website doesn't appear to have been updated since June 2019; while on the home page there's a video link to a 2014 awards ceremony.

 

Abbott has just filed the papers at Companies House for the year ending 2018 — and it does not make for pretty reading.

 

There were no donations, no sponsors and no awards ceremony that year. The charity reportedly lost £866 and was kept afloat by one of its directors.
