I've never particularly liked her but being a reasonable individual I reckoned I'd give her a chance. After all it could be me that's obnoxious, not her.
Having listened to her latest offerings on Question Time though, my mind is now made up.
OK, we have other politicians that side swipe questions put to them. Most of them actually. But Ms Abbot seems to have a remarkable capacity to combine each and every one of her 'talents' every time she opens her mouth. She somehow manages to be obtuse, dismissive, smug and arrogant in pretty well every sentence she utters.
Is it just me? Does anyone actually like her? what kind of person would actually be taken in by her, warm to her, vote for her? She's vile.
Career politician who has benefited from tokenism, no better or worse than any of the others I would say. At least we have a society where people from all races, creeds and colours can stick their noses in the trough.
The whole of the Labour party is beginning to give off horrible whiffs. I'm starting to get a bit sick of the "comrade corbyn" shit. They have no one in my view that's fit for a pm job, and have done nothing recently other than strengthen the Tory party support.
She's just a race card player, with nothing else to offer, no ideas, no policies, no clue. The stupid stuff she comes out with just point to the fact that she can only have got to be where she is because of her colour, and a talent for scheming.
