The only question you need to ask is ... Do you want to see Diane Abbott as Home Secretary on Friday.

I don't. And if Corbyn wins I am 100% sure he won't name Abbott as Home Secretary when he forms the cabinet. So it is a non-issue and scare tactic.

Here is a good up to date online tool to help undecided voters choose who to vote for:

Or any of Boris and his group of clowns negotiating Brexit.

Keir Starmer is by far the best qualified and skilled to negotiate a good deal across all parties. If the Tories do win, then I hope May (or whoever usurps her) can be mature enough to bring Starmer into their team to go to Brussels.

Way to dismiss someone who is ill, Shade. Real big of you.

Has nasty politics and society sunk so slow that someone suffering will ill health and well-being is a source for mocking and abuse?

Why so? Caring about other people makes one a prat? See my above question about how low discourse has sunk in this country.

Just for those who'd rather believe the Mail and right-wing memes ahead of Jeremy Corbyn, it transpires Abbott has been diagnosed with a serious long-term condition:

I didn't realise being a pain in the arse and an embarrassment to the party was an illness.

And you still mock someone diagnosed with a long-term condition.

I take it that's an open invite for RNF members to come and point and laugh if you or a relative get a similar diagnoses.

The scum of society really is rising to the surface today. This transcends party politics. This is a serving MP, who has been diagnosed with a serious condition. Time to stop the abuse.

I haven't seen a doctors note. Convenient timing.

Ultimately, I couldn't actually care less about whether she is/Labour are faking it or not. Ultimately, I've lost all interest in politics as it's a waste of time.

She's definitely ill. I've heard on good authority that she's requested nine days of sick leave this week, already.

Stuck in lift with Corbyn and Abbott. She can't work out what floor number, he won't press the button.

Yeah, and Philip Hammond does really well on the numbers front too; he's the f#!$ Chancellor of the Exchequer (well, until Saturday when Amber Rudd takes the reigns).

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h-Vc_g1j8Sk

But I note he doesn't have to put up with the vitriolic, racist abuse a long-standing MP, hard-working parliamentarian of the year has to suffer - no wonder Diane Abbott is ill.

Any reasonable person would be with that stuff thrown at them. Mainly fed by the press that purports to be acting in our interests, but is really simply the mouthpiece for a handful for billionaires, most of whom can't even be arsed to live in the country they profess to being so proud of. No wonder press reform and regulation is not on Theresa May's agenda - but curbing the basic liberties of the many is.

P.S Whilst she is a strong campaigner and orator, Diane Abbott wouldn't Home Secretary in a Labour Govt - Yvette Cooper would be.
Corbyn erred by appointing her to the Shadow role in the first place. But then May appointed Boris, Liam Fox and Andrea Ledsom - and they actually have seats at the Cabinet table.

That is the depths the UK has sent to Artemis. The Press stole our democracy long ago, and encourage a society where abuse and bullying is seen as funny.

The front page of the Sun today was a nadir of journalism - they don't even have the pretence that we live in a democracy.

In the interest of balance, lets not skirt over the fact that Diane Abbot has made several racist statements in the past.

Just had an LD canvasser (first one from any party in this election) calling on how I was going to vote. The problem with the liberal candidate is that although she is a local lass, her married name is Pörksen and so many won't vote for her because they think she is German!

Tories are taking the Berwick seat for granted. The sitting MP is so confident on winning, she is canvassing in Tynemouth & North Shields as they think they can win there.

Not so long ago Tynemouth was a Tory seat up to 1997. The MP was Neville Trotter.

I know, since 1952 or something. That was before all us metropolitan educated millennials moved out there. General rule at the Coast in North Tyneside is the more Southern and Scottish accents you here and the fewer vans you see, the stronger the Labour vote, and vice versa. Tories haven't realised that yet so are pissing in the wind.
