Black voters deserting Diane: Lib Dems

Lib Dem Hackney North candidate Keith Angus claims that Clegg-o-mania is stealing black voters - specifically Afro-Caribbeans - away from Diane Abbott.

In a post today he wrote: "There has been a shift in sentiment along these lines for a while. But not like this. The most interesting shift I’ve noticed is among Afro-Caribbean people. It’s fair to say that Diane Abbott’s vote among the Afro-Caribbean community was strong. But that now seems to be falling away."

Hopefully Diane will provide her observations from the front line too.

  1. It is sad to see that Diane is losing her votes amongst the Afro-Caribbean people, even though she was the first Black MP. There maybe several reasons for the decline in votes for Diane but i think one of the major issues maybe the loss in public interest, if people's interest are not represented then its only natural for them to look towards someone else who will.
