Barbara Ellen writes "MPs are in no position to sneer" in the Observer - referring to Diane's rant at Esther Rantzen last week:
"It rather looked as though Abbott's definition of "diverse" was her, and any other MPs, who had come up through similar channels, and therefore "knew what they were talking about". Indeed, Esther was a red herring here. One got the feeling that if you scratched Abbot's attitude to the likes of Rantzen, it might all too quickly extend to ordinary members of the public also "not knowing what they're talking about". Now there's a dangerous attitude for dangerous times.
