Diane Abbott.

So did anyone else know that Diane Abbott MP has been writing articles for various Caribbean newspapers informing their readers that "an apology is the least that the British Government owes the descendants of slaves". Her interpretation of the whole thing is familiar to anyone who has read the distorted interpretations of slaver and abolition by professional race baiters, but it still seems extraordinary for British MPs to sneak off to incite resentment against their country abroad.

If you consider what most British MPs - particularly on the government benches - say, write and think about this country and its (indigenous) inhabitants I'm amazed that Abbott bothered to write further articles smothering her fellow citizens (with the usual exceptions) in vitriol - unless it was for the money of course.
