Diane Abbott - from a working class family, daughter of a welder and a nurse, she became one of the first-ever black MP’s elected in Britain. And she’s the longest serving black MP in the country, serving her community for 32 years.
She has consistently voted in favour of women’s rights and LGBTQ rights. She’s consistently voted to raise disability and carer benefits, and consistently voted in favour of jobs and opportunities for young people.
She's the founder of the Schools And The Black Child initiative, which raises educational achievement among black children. She’s worked to raise minority representation in parliament. She set up a cross-party committee to investigate youth gun crime, and she’s the chair of the All Party Parliamentary British-Caribbean Group.
She receives more hate mail, death threats and rape threats than any other MP. Half of all hate mail sent to female MP’s is sent to Diane Abbott.
Despite that she’s served her community for 32 years. In her last election she won her constituency by a majority of over 75%. SEVENTY-FIVE PERCENT!
She can drink where she ###### likes, mate.
