    Diane Abbot's video description of some of the vile comments she has received is truly disturbing.

    Diane Abbott can be a bit scatty at times but I have huge respect for her and what she has achieved considering she has had to endure some of the most horrendous racial and sexual abuse since she was first elected to Parliament. It was really disgusting how Theresa May in one of her TV debates singled out Ms Abbott for criticism for no particular reason other than trying to tap into the same reasons that motivated people to abuse and troll Ms Abbott over the years.
