Here is a short course on how to commit Political murder 101 by Andrew Neil, a bit of research, a piece of paper and a pen can cause so much damage

What a hypocrite and self centered woman......

I wouldnt vote for her as my labour MP let alone LEADER they had to rig it for her to enter..
she is the token woman token black token single mother if only she was disabled and gay would have been a brilliant candidate.

Dear Mxyztlk

Diane Abbott functions quite well on a certain level, once you take her out of her comfort zone; it is entirely a different matter.

The Andrew Neil interview was a disaster for her politically but it was the type of questions she needed to answer.

No comment means no confidence.

I would add there is nothing wrong with ‘protest’ politics but in her position she has also has to provide solutions.

I like her appearances on This Week with Andrew Neil and Michael Portillo; they fit well together on a certain level of light entertainment.

I actually changed my mind about Portillo, once he left politics; it was the making of him.

I think that Diane Abbott’s decision to stand for the Labour leadership may mean that her time on This Week is drawing to a close.

In politics everything you say and do can and will be used against you, even by people in your own party and the press, she is finding that out.

Yours sincerely

Andrew Neil done another snider on his programme against her. You think she can survive George.
