....that no-one on here has mentioned the Dianne Abbott interview yesterday. To read about it is one thing, but to hear it, well, it is seriously cringeworthy.

It was a bit of a mess, and thats why it has received so much publicity, because people delight in other peoples mistakes. This was, undoubtedly a clumsy live interview by Abbott, but she had the decency to accept she misspoke and corrected (this was not as well publicised, of course). Its a pity as its a reasonably well costed Labour policy, that she had stated on numerous interviews prior to that (even on the same day), but as they were done correctly, they are not noteworthy for the media (mainstream or social media) to pick up on.

Also, nobody mentioned Pells pool closing because the conservatives think child numbers in Lewes will go down. Just because they're not having any sex doesn't mean others aren't.

Pells was a failing school. Even landporters didn't want their kids there.

So you improve it you fool. When you were failing did your parents give up on you or did they try to stop you turning into a douche bag?

A school is only as good as its staff. If its failing then the obvious thing to do is to get the right staff in to sort it out. Not close it. Imagine if that policy was applied to every school, hospital, prison that was under performing.

Problem with DA is that she's perceived as a hypocrite because of her kids education. She also sounds patronising every time she opens her mouth.
Personally I think she's a bit thick.

At the risk of asking the most obvious question, given the importance of the role of Home Secretary in domestic security, immigration etc., does anyone truly think, regardless of personal on these issues themselves or party allegiance, that Diane Abbott has the basic competence, intelligence or skills necessary to hold that office? Honestly, can anyone say they really believe she'd be up to the job? Just curious.

No, Andymac, I think Abbott is her own worst enemy. And to use that mealy-mouted word 'misspoke' is a mistake too. It was used by Hillary Clinton and her gang whenever she was caught lying, which was often.

She, may not be, but was May who oversaw a massive cut in police, is Johnson the best for foreign secretary, is Hunt best for the Nhs considering all he wants to do now privatise it and has written books about that.
I'm hoping that if there is some sort not coalition then someone more competent would get the job...

@ clifford. She wasn't lying. She genuinely just said the wrong thing. Had used the correct numbers many times in other interviews that day.
Wouldn't want her as home secretary. Plenty of other options although a moot point probably.
