Diane Abbott is in the running for Labour leadership…9th June 2010….

June 10, 2010

Or is she? Diane simply does not have the potential to lead the opposition, nor can I view her as a Prime Minister. She has little in leadership skills or charisma. Her presence in the Labour race as an issue of ensuring gender is represented is questionable. Let’s face it, Diane is no Obama, she does not have the flair associated with Barack or Cameron . Therefore, figuratively speaking, whether Mr Miliband believes her presence in the race, as the first Black person to stand for Labour leadership, is a great day for diversity, the sheer fact is she will never win this race. Showing willing does not mean that one believes. And being in a race for oneself, not for the whole country is another issue. So one wonders who Diane is in this race for? I am not going to knock Diane, she would be excellent at the side of Miliband or maybe she has it in her to hold a shadow cabinet position but I am afraid this is not a leader that could lead the country. Miliband, on the other hand, is probably the best for the job.


  1. If I was a gambling man I would put my money on Milliband.
    Diane Abbot is not a leader.

  2. What is morally wrong can never be advantageous, even when it enables you to make some gain that you believe to be to your advantage.
