I don’t know whether to despise Diane Abbott just that little bit more or whether to pity her for her evident stupidity.
Not content with insulting one fifth of the world’s population, she’s also said that taxi drivers are racist!
A spokesman for the Licensed Taxi Drivers Association, Steve McNamara, said:
We find it amazing that in this day and age someone in Diane Abbott’s position can try to resurrect the stereotypes from the 1960s. At worst she is racist and at best she is stupid in making comments like that. Either way, she should go.
She might have trouble getting a cab in the future and it won’t be because she’s black, it will be because she is stupid. I certainly won’t be stopping for her.
You can always rely on a cabbie to tell it how it is and I would so love to see her flag down a black cab and be told to get stuffed!

Sad to hear that Bob Holness has died. A generation will remember him fondly from Blackbusters
