Iain Dale has a delicious anecdote about Dianne Abbott - truly one of the most unpleasant people I have encountered in my twenty years in and around Westmnister.

Wayne David found himself last week in a lift in Portcullis House with Diane Abbott. There was a short silence until...

Wayne: So aren't you going to lobby me, then?

Diane: How long have you been an MP?

Wayne: Nine years.

Diane: And have I ever spoken to you in that time?

Wayne: No.

Diane: So why would I start now?

Stephen,

But you've got to admit that when Diane is on the couch next to Michael, she is lovely and cuddly.They really do make a fabulous couple and British viewers are extemely lucky to be able to hear their insights. If anybody ever says that TV is junk, I always refer them to this unlikely pair. It's also a very good example of how a white toff can get on with a black woman, late at night.

Stephen,

Why do you describe Diane Abbott as " one of the most unpleasant people I have encountered in my twenty years in and around Westmnister."?

Whta has she done to upset you?
