    MP Diane Abbott in Twitter Race Row (BBC News)

    MP Diane Abbott in Twitter race row



    Shadow Health Minister Diane Abbott is at the centre of a Twitter row over claims she made racist comments.

    Responding to criticism of the term "black community leaders" she wrote: ''White people love playing 'divide & rule' We should not play their game''.

    Tory MP Nadhim Zahawi says Labour leader Ed Miliband should sack her for "inciting hatred against white people".

    Ms Abbott, the first black woman to be elected as an MP, later wrote her remark had been "taken out of context".

    She was reacting on Twitter to a conversation about media coverage in the wake of the Stephen Lawrence murder trial to a woman who wrote: "I do wish everyone would stop saying 'the black community' though. Which one?"

    'Intolerable'
    The Hackney North and Stoke Newington MP, who stood for Labour leader in the 2010 contest, remarked that "Ethnic communities that show more public solidarity & unity than black people do much better".

    She added: "White people love playing 'divide & rule'. We should not play their game" followed by "#tacticasoldascolonialism" - a way Twitter users flag up keywords and topics.

    Conservative MP Nadhim Zahawi told BBC Radio 5live her comments were "intolerable".

    "This is racism," he said.

    "If this was a white member of Parliament saying that all black people want to do bad things to us he would have resigned within the hour or be sacked.

    "For a shadow minister to hold these sort of views is intolerable, it is wrong, she needs to go."

    Ms Abbott updated her page on Twitter later to say: "Tweet taken out of context. Refers to nature of 19th Century European colonialism. Bit much to get into 140 characters."

    What's worse is that it's Nadhim Zahawi sticking up for us. Zahawi is a Kurd from Iraq, yet he defends us whilst we don't do anything. It's really disappointing that we put our tail between our legs and walk away for not wishing to be labeled as racists.

    It's really disappointing that we put our tail between our legs and walk away for not wishing to be labeled as racists.
    Further to this, I've just had the unpleasant experience of watching the Sky News press review and some ugly, butch-looking White woman was telling us all that Whites should just 'take it on the chin' and accept it as payback for the way we've treated blacks in the past

    Even when asked if it was fair that blacks could get away with saying stuff that Whites couldn't, she persisted with her line that we 'deserved it' and should learn to accept such criticism. Meanwhile, the bloke with her just sat nodding his head obediently and, when asked, tried to dismiss the whole thing as a non-event whilst they both agreed that these things are only racist when Whites do them!

    Although being aware of it for years, this is the first time I've ever heard this view expressed so brazenly in public and it marks a whole new stage in the oppression of whites in the UK. The cat is now well and truly out of the bag and the twisted logic involved here (according to this pair of wafflers) is that Whites are the 'ruling class' so you cannot compare black racism with White racism

    They then showed a clip of Diane Abbott being interviewed but as soon as she was asked a difficult question her mobile phone conveniently rang and, after excusing herself, she walked away from the cameras and never returned!

    I'm sure this will all be appearing on YouTube in the near future and will post it as soon as it becomes available.

    Today's Twitter storm is the latest in a number of blunders made by the MP who positioned herself as an anti-racism campaigner, once claiming that Britain had 'invented racism'.

    In 2010 Abbott called David Cameron and Nick Clegg 'two posh white boys', sparking claims of racism on the BBC's internet message boards. One wrote: 'I am sure that if a posh white person sat on this programme and mentioned a colour comment like that, there would be uproar.'
    The same year, she was criticised over remarks she made on BBC's This Week over her decision to send her son James to a private school. Andrew Neil quoted her saying that 'West Indian mums will go to the wall for their children'.
    Mr Neil responded by asking: 'So black mums love their kids more than white mums, do they?'

    Furious Abbott said: 'I have said everything I am going to say about where I send my son to school.'

    Previously, Abbott face accusations of racism suggesting that the 'blonde blue-eyed Finnish girls' working in her local hospital were unsuitable as nurses because they had 'never met a black person before'.

    Abbott has positioned herself as an anti-racism campaigner and once claimed that Britain had 'invented racism'.

    The latest row follows a previous race controversy on the same show, fronted by Andrew Neil, last year, after he compared Abbott to a chocolate HobNob biscuit.

    Well Mrs. Abbott, you can go spread your anti-white propaganda elsewhere. Maybe back in the West Indies.

    As for the Finnish girls, what the heck were they thinking when they left for England? Finland is basically, in my opinion, white paradise. That's really the only colour you see there, and is very well socially and economically developed.

    Just another example, as if any more were needed, of the appalling double standards that exist in the UK. If it had been a White politician who had said these things about blacks, he would have been hounded out of politics long ago.

    A few years ago I was unfortunate enough to actually see and hear Abbott in the flesh. She was out in the street in Hackney, surrounded by her supporters, and was shouting her mouth off about how blacks were disadvantaged etc. etc. She was obnoxious then and she is even more obnoxious now.

    But only Whites can be racist!

    This is not the first time she has indulged in this behaviour:

    This obese, haughty negress racist has an inadequate IQ for her position.

    I can live with that - it's not her fault if she's thick.
    But what I find cringingly embarrassing is when she sits on that couch with the Spanish bisexual Michael Denzil Xavier Portillo and giggles at the news reports on the Week in Politics on BBC2.

    Her crass, purile conclusions regarding the issues of the day lay her naivety and bigotry out for all to see.

    If she was a white MP she would have been hounded out of office years ago.

    Look at her and listen to her - shameless scummy MP, loving her newly-found middle-class environment.
