whilst not wanting to minimise  the abuse,  i  would bet the abuse she has received isn't a tenth of that received by Dianne Abbott

It's true that someone was jailed a few years ago for threatening to kill Diane and burn down her house, and that Angela obviously won't attract the thinly veiled racism, but she (Angela) does tick a couple of other boxes for that demographic - teenage mum, not particularly well educated.

On bereavement leave, and also avoiding public appearances because of an increasing volume of abuse and death threats.

why do you deem it unpleasant?

Because its clearly an unpleasant thing to say.

 

Belittling problems of people you don't know isn't a very nice thing to do.

 

Why did you think that it was an OK thing to say?

Yes, I think the number of death threats has increased since then, though we all know that MPs have been getting this kind of thing for years.

Its clearly unpleasant in YOUR opinion......how exactly have i belittled problems of people i dont know?

did you not read the part where i said ....."whilst not wanting to minimise  the abuse"....

here read it again but a bit slower....."whilst not wanting to minimise  the abuse"....

i am really struggling to understand your logic on this...

You know those people who say "no offence but..."

 

And then go on to be offensive?

 

That's what you've just done.

Thank you. It’s just the cynic in me that thinks since she said what she said, she had been put on the back burner

I guess its just me, is it right to put a 23 year old student up for a very responsible job?

Would you vote in a 23 year old as your MP?

I was just using that as an example, because its a job with a similar ammount of responsibility and pay.

What is your answer?
