Wasn't this acknowledged as a mistake at the time?

I believe Aboot to be a repulsive racist idiot, but even i was embarrassed listening to her befool herself.

Although, anything that prevents Labour gaining power can't be all bad.

In her defense, she followed with saying they'd fund the 10,000 officers with £8,000,000. So they'd be on £8k ...

Why does Corbyn let her represent the party so much in the media? She constantly makes them look stupid.

That was the second go. They settled on £300 million. Poor Diane, she was only out by 3 orders of magnitude. That's essentially economic competence from the Labour party.

Perhaps Labour need education reform, so they can learn basic maths.

The problem for Labour is that BOTH the media narrative and the public perception is that they are not just unfit to govern but actually laughable.

Diane Abbott's interview, from someone who aspires to be Home Secretary, and therefore in charge of our police, just reinforces this damning narrative. No-one is surprised, we all expect such incompetence from Labour.

It is over. There is nothing to be done. May is going to win a landslide majority and Labour will continue to rip its throat out.

A catastrophic defeat will help the left. They hold a lot of the safe seats. It is the right who are going to hurt most in the surviving rump.

More left wing lunacy as the Corbynistas blame the media or Blair for THIS defeat. The right trying to take back control.

Will we ever see a Labour Government again?

LOL.

Lets hope Corbyn is the last nail in the Labour coffin, we may get a party that actually represents the British working class out of the ashes.

Labour is pretty much the only party that represents working class voters esp in the north or liberal middle class voters. Tories represent the privileged.
Nah, mate, they represent middle class, metropolitan, multicultural London luvvies.

If you think Jeremy Corbyn is held in anything other than contempt by 80% of the electorate, including most of the northern working class you obviously can't read polling data.

And have never met any actual working class northerners.

That's the point, the people who want to vote labour can't because there are so many idiots in the party.

This just highlights one of the major problems, how do you vote for someone who's incapable of performing basic arithmetic, and is quite literally plucking numbers out of the air?

You can't vote for someone you have no faith in just because of the colour, or at least you shouldn't.

I don't understand. Those who tolerated the labour party under Blair, don't want to tolerate anything under Corbyn. People are now turning their backs as Labour is trying to seek its principles.
Yes, Corbyn has been disappointing, and his leadership not great. Yes, the labour party aren't the best at handling the media. The same can be said of many labour MP's like Abbott. However, this would be a stupid reason for supporting May and allowing her to destroy what remains left of British decency.
And beneath Abbott's mistake with the numbers, there lies a policy that actually makes sense.
I didn't ever suggest voting for May. I can't stand the woman, and quite frankly, I'm disgusted she's in power.

But I really can't bring myself to vote labour, with the state they're in. I'll likely vote green or independent.

Labour's numbers do make sense. Abbot just fumbled it :facepalm:

"The shadow home secretary stumbled but reversing cuts to capital gains tax would pay for 10,000 extra officers"

https://www.theguardian.com/politics...ers-make-sense

Also John MacDonald has generally gotten economists to help guide labour policy on the economy.
