Dianne Abbott in the Sunday Times.

Not entirely sure why, but I've long had a bit of a soft spot for Diane, but there were a couple of big tells in her 'life in the day of' piece in the mag:

"My better [de-stessing mechanism] is listening to dance and soul music'. Living in Hackney, you can have it on loud and nobody's bothered" I doubt it - from my experience of London, people are no more enthusiastic about noise than anywhere else, but there is a fear of what will happen if you complain to the /wrong/ person.

And the this - "Even when I'm retired and on the beach in Jamaica with a toy boy...". Try recasting the genders of those involved and just imagine how hot the water for any male MP to make such a comment would be.

At least Tony Blair spends his Caribbean holidays with a fat old hypocritical harridan.
In fact if we reverse genders just the role Ms Abbott has in mind for her toy boy. And both at the expense of the British taxpayer.
