Well, the old thread seems to be languishing in moderator-land, so here's a new one...

Abbott has claimed that since 2010 the Tories have 'hugely increased youth unemployment'

https://twitter.com/HackneyAbbott/status/862950493...

Facts on youth unemployment:
2010 - 19.1%
2017 - 12.6%

Oh no, not the wigglies?

Damn Americans - they're taking over the Internet.

I look on red wigglies as a sign of defiance and independence for PROPER English.

She could have argued that the 2017 figures include 'zero hours contracts' and gig-type jobs.

Give some respect to how she makes herself look idiotic in the hope that corbin looks somewhat reasonable alongside her. You just dont get that kind of self-sacrifice from a tory.
