    Diane Abbott, another fine performance

    Why on earth does The Labour party put her up for interviews? Her performance on the Today program this morning was a total farce. Refusing to answer simple questions, a total embarrassment.
    It's not the size of the Cannon, it's the power of the shot.

      Please Honky Tonx, please, what you need to understand, what you need to understand is that this is a very delicate situation, it's very delicate, and it needs to be thought through fully, and what I mean by that is that we need to cover every scenario and eventuality, and think through, think through the implications of our actions, and it would be irresponsible Honky Tonx, to rashly state exactly what we would do at this stage, when what we should be doing, what we should be doing, is analysing the whole situation in detail in order to make the most appropriate decisions.

      As opposed to saying exactly what they are doing and then not doing it.

      Or formulating an insensitive response to something that hasn't been proven.

      Yes. I heard that too. She kept banging on about a UN led mission to investigate the latest chemical attack, even when Nick Robinson kept reminding her that the Russians will simply use their veto to prevent any such investigation.

      Being very Pro Left Wing Labour, even I think that Diane Abbott is past her best in terms of media dealings in politics these days; That said, during her time in Politics she has done brilliantly for her constituents over the years. She has also done a lot to change many people's views on ''race issues'' over 30 years and for that we should be eternally grateful.

      She’d be a lot better off avoiding interviews and just going about her business quietly behind the scenes. Her inability to formulate coherent arguments whilst on the telly and radio has undermined much of the good work she does elsewhere.

      She’s made best of her extremely limited abilities.

      But strangely, not in her own constituency ?
