If you have a degree in Economics but you want to do a graduate diploma in Econ, would you do it?

Just to also mention, I am doing it because I feel the pandemic has lowered my grades and I can do better. Then I will probably do a masters later depending on how I do in the Diploma. What do people think?

I am looking at the Birkbeck GDE by the way.

Probably not. The Grad DIploma is essentially half of a bachelor's degree in economics, so you will more or less be repeating the material in your bachelor's. Unless you have a good reason to do so, I don't think doing a grad diploma will help you at all.

A master's will be more or less a grad diploma with a master's dissertation. However, it makes sense to specialise in an area of economics for your master's if you have done a general economics degree for your bachelor's.
