I know that is going to be somewhat contentious because of the hype that this woman has built around her. But I am going to commit to this posting in any case as we live in a democracy and I am entitled to my opinion.
I quite frankly detest her and am embarrassed by the fact that her political candel wick has burned for so long.
She had a privilidged upbringing and education despite her very humbled roots. Not good enough for her, not by far.
She has played the race card so heavily that she has become an irritating Hackneyed cliche ( more of the Hackney thing in a moment)
I don't need to explain to most of you her terribly embarrassing past, but Her most recent fuck ups which are apparently driven by her diabetes should be enough to retire her from any front line team. I also believe that had any middle aged white woman or man that transgressed in the shit mire that she has, should have been enough to force them to consider an alternative career.
Back to the Hackney thing. I was, as they say 'dragged up' in Hackney and went to school in Bethnal Green. Our MP st the time - Mr Brown, had no agenda other than to look after all of his constituents irrespective of colour or creed. Abbott on the other hand has been far to the extreme of this so called positive discrimination that it makes me sick. She is in a very safe seat by virtue of the fact that she is black and emersed herself in a largely black community. She is also openly opposed to what most of us believe to be the proliatariat.
I despise this poor excuse for a politician and can't wait to see her demise; however, sadly that day is far in the distance.
