Labour MP Chuka Umunna has said that much of the recent criticism towards Diane Abbot has been driven by ‘straightforward racism and misogyny’.
‘There is absolutely no doubt that a large part of the commentary on Diane, not just during the general election but over the years, has been driven by straightforward racism and misogyny, and you just have to look online to see it’.
‘It is disgusting and it has got to stop. Frankly it will put young black women off getting involved in politics’.
