She really is a very bad joke. Horrifying to think she, God forbid, could become a Cabinet Minister

Outside of incompetence (almost unheard of, sadly, to be sacked for that), you have to be some piece of work to get sacked from a teaching post. I'd love the long version...

I am no fan of Diane Abbot and I thought the interview this morning was a disaster. She should have known better how to get out of it relatively unscathed. However, this was her 7th interview of the morning, no doubt before many here had slithered out of their beds.
What irks me with this thread and others to be found on here, is the use of personal insult. Let's have some photos of you slim, lithe, Adonis types who contribute here and we can have a go at you. I won't partake however as I already acknowledge I am over weight and not particularly attractive. I can immediately think of one here who wouldn't take kindly to attacks on their personal life. So, let's leave it out. Concentrate on the politics by all means.

Don't worry everyone, come June 9th or thereabouts, Corbyn will be resigning and Abbott will disappear from the radar for the foreseeable future.

^^^ Wot Kelvin said.
It's easy enough to criticise her stupid politics and her hypocritical life choices.
There is no need to make fun of her appearance.

Well we all know the rumoured reason why she got the job. Maybe she was thinking about big boy Jeremy and was choking on her words.

Nope. Corbyn will restate the fact: he is overwhelmingly the Party's choice. Another contest will reinforce that.

That's if he's not PM by then. The world is in a helluva state at the mo, and the precedents have been set....

Surely the chance of Corbyn being the new PM is negligable. It is tradition to resign if proved that you are not capable of leading your party to government.

I'd love to relate it (it would take several hours to write the necessary essay) but as it is an on-going legal case I'd better not. It is a story of self-delusion tho', which actually ties up well with his belief that Corbyn is going to be the next PM.

I am with CG on the one.

I am really hoping that the polls are correct and Mrs May wins a very healthy majority to enable her to go forward in a direction I am very comfy with however as recent events have shown the polls are getting it spectacularly wrong on just about everything.

I don't think Ladbrooks would see it from your perspective

How to show your affinity with the UK population....and lets not forget, the recent claim to be the "party of the working people"..or words to that effect in this respect...

https://www.theguardian.com/politics...bacon-sandwich

Also, there was a reference to "surrounded by acolytes" in an earlier post thus we can only imagine the trauma which may be induced by her truly democratic decision not to admit a prominent media outlet to one of her " this is all about ME ! ME ! ME !" rallies for the faithful.

And there are those on here who swoon at her every word as well as believe she is the new Messiah....

Sorry about this slight drift CG....

I can think of one other organisation, in part, at one location, closely related to the above, where you can, in fact not only plan ( and announce ! ) your sickness in advance, be incompetent, take time off during your working day, fiddle your leave, refuse to actually do what you are employed to do, ignore the SOP's and make statements, which, anywhere else , when allied to overall poor performance, would have resulted in dismissal for gross misconduct and even more so when this is admitted.

Kelvin.

If this was her 7th interview, surely she should know the details, having presented them in the previous 6.

It was pretty much the most dramatic demonstration of her complete and utter incompetence I think I've seen to date. She even managed to look more stupid than Alex Salmond, when he got well and truly kippered by Andrew Neil last weekend.

It seems pretty clear that she only got the Shadow Home Secretary job because Corbyn used to shag her, just after he'd split up with his first wife.

What worries me is that there are such a bunch of completely incompetent tossers in Labour, the LibDems and the SNP, that there will be no effective Opposition to the next government, and I happen to think that is not a good thing for our form of parliamentary democracy.

I'm not sure if the dissolution honours system comes into play at this election, but I wouldn't put it past Corbyn to nominate her for a peerage as a final insult to democracy.
