Those on this forum who criticized Diane should reflect on the following.
She has been re-elected as MP for Hackey with 75% of the vote.
Her majority was the largest achieved by a Labour MP ever!
Clearly her constituents know a good thing when they see it.
Well done Diane. Your Politics are NOT mine, but you have my respect.
I hope you make a speedy recovery from your illness.
Geoff.

At the risk of being labelled a racist ( I like to live dangerously) it is not surprising as at least 75% of the voters in Hackney are the same colour as D.A.

Most who voted for Mrs May in Maidenhead were whites - they aren't racist either.
But just as savvy as the voters in Hackney!

99% of voters in Hackney would vote for a Donkey if it has a Labour rosette on it.

I lived in Hackney for a while and totally agree. They are also unlikely to vote for a Tory, particularly a white one
which was the option they had!

She is a very intelligent lady; but the illness she looks like she is suffering from according to some of my medical contacts; appears to be the early signs of dimentia, which would explain her recent gaffs. I hope they are wrong for her sake! :pint

That would explain things. If true I wish her all the best for the future and hope her illness can be kept under control.

No we are not. I would vote for a black candidate if I thought they were the right one to represent me. For example, if I were in America, and had the choice of Obama or Trump, then there would be no competition at all for me. Obama every time!

I would think Abbott is just about fully well again, now she has been re-elected. Thankfully the socialists didn't get in despite Corbyns totally empty promises of freebies for everyone, but if they had and she had become Home Secretary then she would have deported from the UK all the white racists. All 50+ million of them. :crylaughin

Has there been any analyst on those elected by religion rather than colour?

I heard Dianne Abbott is to be honoured for services to the Tory party.

It appears that the lady has Type 2 Diabetes and that was the cause of her confusions!


Diane Abbott has revealed her type 2 diabetes affected her performance during the general election campaign.
The Labour MP was replaced as shadow home secretary because of ill health just 48 hours before polling day, having appeared in a series of 'car-crash' broadcast interviews.
Ms Abbott, 63, told the Guardian "everything went crazy" during the campaign and her diabetes had been "out of control".

After she floundered over the funding of extra police officers during one radio interview, she said her brother had contacted her and "gave me a lecture about eating and having glucose tablets".
But she said she was now managing the condition and felt ready to get back to work.
It is the first time she has spoken about the condition since receiving the diagnosis two years ago.

Ms Abbott told the Guardian: "The first time I became aware that I was a target of a national campaign was when people in marginals in the north were WhatsApping me to say there were ad vans talking about me, with a picture of me and Jeremy on," she said.
"Then there were these targeted Facebook ads. There was one which was a mashup ad which made it sound as if I supported al Qaida. We did contemplate taking legal action."

Explaining the deterioration in her health, the 63-year-old Hackney North and Stoke Newington MP said: "During the election campaign, everything went crazy - and the diabetes was out of control, the blood sugar was out of control."

She said her brother had raised concerns after seeing her struggling: "He said 'that is not Diane', because ever since I've been a child I've had a great memory for figures, and he said he knew it was my blood sugar and gave me a lecture about eating and having glucose tablets."
She added: "It is a condition you can manage. I am doing that now and I feel ready to get back to work."
Theresa May also suffers from diabetes. The Prime Minsiter has the type 1 form of the condition, which means she has to inject herself with insulin four times a day.
