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?
