Diane Abbott got figures wrong in another interview (Stock image)

Friday, May 5, 2017

Diane Abbott has again mixed up her figures during an interview - and Twitter hasn't been slow to express its solidarity.

The shadow home secretary said Labour had suffered a net loss of 50 seats in the local elections, when in fact the party had lost 125 seats.

She claimed the reason for the blunder was because she had seen the figure earlier in the day, and since then it had gone up.

This interview came just days after another interview where she couldn't explain how much Labour's policing policy would cost.

Many on Twitter have been criticising Abbott for her recent mistakes, see the reaction below.
