Voted two weeks ago, postal vote.
Even though the result is a foregone conclusion we should all use our vote .

Very strange. Shame that someone so potentially excellent and distinguished...isn't.
I think as has been said earlier she has a recent problem of some sort--illness--or a drink 'problem', her 'symptoms' look very similar to those of Charles Kennedy before he resigned (a great politician).

Charles Kennedy was a great politician, that's the difference.

Not recent but recently been diagnosed.

I am hoping not early onset of dementia. She is diabetic .

No. I am not making any sort of fun. Why would I.

To lose yourself for whatever reason at the pinnacle of what you have spent your life working for is not something to ridicule or denigrate.

Sort yourselves out people.

In a few years or so that could be you suddenly.

Another view from "outside the bubble"

Don’t be fooled by the U.K. election: There’s nothing democratic about Brexit

Brexit may have been envisioned as a means of restoring democracy and sovereignty to the British people, but that is far from what is actually happening.

Bizarre how the latest "House of Cards" series is similar to UK rather than US situation...

And has probably not been eating and drinking properly during the campaign, so her blood-sugar level likely went too far one way or the other.

Google the name of the person. She had a highly-publicised disagreement with Katie Hopkins (the professional shit-stirrer) and KH's followers.

Get a grip! Apart from demonization and possible discrimination, I fail to see why comments on Diane Abbot are continuing. She had a bad campaign, she performed badly, she may well be having a personal crisis.

Whilst she is one of the better known Corbyn supporters and shadow home secretary, she is not in a position of authority. Were Labour to form a government she is not a shoe-in as home secretary and even if she were to be given the post, it is hardly a job for life. Nor does it carry some form of divine authority.

There are bigger issues at stake today than bitching about one candidate...... unless, of course, it's a diversionary tactic.

Interesting story, but no more or less qualified than you or any other person to give an opinion on DA.

Anyone who takes on Hopkins gets a thumbs up from me.

Interesting view from "outside the bubble". Misleading claims and outright lies...... who'd have guessed?

They were only "suggestions", as most Britons now know.
