Really, what has she "accomplished" that is any different to any other member of the shadow cabinet? or any other member of the Cabinet, you know the one that actually has to make decisions that runs the country, 

By your definition she is no different to any other MP is she not?

 

Do you think she was/is an effective shadow HS? if so, how.

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.

I'm sure the fact she went to a Grammar school helped.

.....and her son went to Trinity, Cambridge and read Law. But he did attend a fee paying school.

How long until Labour start opposing the Tories?

 

Why on earth did they decide on a contest that takes months - leaving Corbyn in charge when he'd be far more useful on his allotment. The General Election didn't take as long.

At least another 2 generations? If at all!

Quite an amusing story.  Yorkshire Tea getting flak, abuse and threats of boycotts because the chancellor shared a pic of him with a massive bag of them.

 

For balance, Corbyn was pictured with them in 2017, but I don't recall any Tories threatening to boycott the brand.

Long Bailey this morning:

 

Quote

The Conservatives are not the party of aspiration, they’re the party of privilege, funded by those who want to protect their privilege.

 

Until we kick big money out of politics, our political system will be rigged in favour of the obscenely wealthy.

Also this morning:

I wonder why they don't say where they are getting their money from, it makes it appear they have something to hide

Perhaps if they hadn't had an interminable campaign (which has helped the Tories get off scot free so far) they wouldn't need much money.

 

Am surprised that the Corbynistas didn't right a rule on disclosure - or would they have said only donations from Unite are allowed?

Thanks for the reply, but totally irrelevant to what I was asking.
