I don't agree with much of what Diane Abbott says but the way she is abused and insulted in the media makes me cringe.

It quite clearly IS because she's a black woman, they wouldn't dare if she was a white man.

If you think she gets stick "quite clearly because she's a black woman", that says a great deal about how you (want to) view the world.

She holds a very senior position in British politics, yet displays none of the attributes you'd expect (and demand) of someone who's attained that standing.

That and only that is why she gets the attention and derogatory treatment - if I didn't know better, I'd find it difficult to believe she was a backbencher, let alone in the shadow cabinet.

It clearly has nothing to do with her race and gender from my (and most other neutral people's) perspective.

I agree - some of the abuse she gets is due to her colour. HOWEVER a lot of the abuse is because she's a racist, incompetent fking cretin who's been promoted way above her competency level.

Go on social media and look at the abuse May gets.
Quite!

Obviously zarjaz1991 has also never had a look at what people say about Farage and Trump online.

You’re wrong, for me anyway. I don’t see a black person. I see a senior MP who is a moron. And how dare you suggest such a thing when she makes overt racist comments again white people. Open your eyes

No doubt she does get some abuse due to her colour. Not on this thread. I agree on the rest

The main point is that people were mistaken about the polling figures, that's all. The line of questioning or perceived bias was nothing to do with race.

A white man wouldn't be in that position. They'd have been sacked, voted out or never attained the position in the first place for being clearly mentally challenged.
This - a gazillion times.

I am happy to ridicule Diane Abbot for her displays of incompetence relating to simple facts and her ability to logically argue a case. Those should be core skills for anyone in politics let alone someone who aspires to one of the highest offices in the land. She is not fit do do her job. It has nothing to do with her skin colour or gender.

Boris is also a complete muppet and I have no respect for home either. He is obviously intelligent but a very poor communicator and would appear to be self-serving and disloyal. I don’t like those attribute in a politician either and it is nothing to do with skin colour or gender.

It is a handy thing to have as a politician having Black Skin, you can use it to blame others for your own abilities. Abbott has never shied from using it when it suites her and now is an example.

On QT she was utterly incompetent, she had no idea of a policy except to say whatever the Tories come up with is bad. She tried to speak down to people questioning her views and when they reacted to her comments negatively, it is now claimed it is because she is Black.

She is inept pure and simple and get called out for that and that alone. Farage, JRM, Gove all get stick no worse than she does for being posh.

Personally I would say she gets more slack than she should do because she's a black woman.

She is stupid, hypocritical, and racist and yet may well be home secretary in the next few years.

I can only think Labour her have kept her to use as a shield because every time she opens her mouth she deflects the attention from the other idiots in her party.
She is a horrible woman

Looking forward to her controlling the police, MI5, and immigration services and their budgets.

Watched QT the other night....her 'performance' was possibly the worst I have witnessed...

Rory Stewart couldn't help but grin at her answers, such that they were...

How she got to be an MP is totally beyond any comprehension...
