Behold the intellectual power of the Labour Front Bench

Ms. Abbott was, until recently, Shadow International Development Minister.

Diane Abbott:

To ask the Secretary of State for International Development, what steps she has taken to assist people in the Indonesian province of Province of Davao del Norte affected by the drought in that province.

Justine Greening:

There is no province called Davao del Norte in Indonesia.

  1. Come on guys, this a question that our Secy of State can answer without hesitation : What steps has she taken to assist people in the Indonesian province of Province of Davao del Norte affected by the drought in that province.

    Answer : None.

  2. Nobody is going to be that surprised to discover that Diane Abbott is thick and idle but even someone as thick and idle as she undoubtedly is should have recognised Spanish elements in Davao del Norte – odd in the context of Indonesia.

    Anyhow, now as shadow (some shadow) minister for gastric bands she will soon find out from which country the nurses hail.

    Is anyone else having difficulty distinguishing between Jeremys? Stalwart of BBC ‘comedy’, Jeremy Hardy and that committed funster and dreyfusard Jeremy Corbyn are becoming interchangeable.

  3. No-one can fail to tell the difference between Jermies Corbyn and Hardy. Corbyn has gained more laughs in his time as Labour leader than Hardy has in his entire career.

  4. Davao del Norte means north of Davao which is the main city in Mindanao in the Philippines. Davao is the city where the new loony president was mayor for a long time.

  5. BluLab can’t boast much even compared to ZaNu.

    May has just announced that nobody should expect immigration controls anytime soon.

    I knew she was colossally stupid but Jesus H…

  6. Perhaps the hippo was set up by a party droid? They obviously know how thick she is.

  7. But..but…but ..Dianne Abbot has a vast intellect! She’s Oxbridge educated!

  8. MC: No-one can fail to tell the difference between Jermies Corbyn and Hardy. Corbyn has gained more laughs in his time as Labour leader than Hardy has in his entire career.

    Ah, but there’s my difficulty: The former isn’t meant to be entertaining but is while the latter is but isn’t.

  9. I’d suggest she be sent on a fact finding mission to the deep South Philippines but she’d probably make good friends with the Islamist and communist insurgents.

  10. I had no idea who she was.
    (interwebs image search. Comes back.)

    She certainly does seem to like pies. No need to stop, necessarily; perhaps she could browse Google maps or read a geography book while eating them.

  11. That did make me chuckle actually – the contention amongst fashionable opinion was that ‘while not every Leave voter was a ‘racist’, all Racists voted ‘Leave” – hilarious thus to find an instant rebuttal to that in that the Uk’s two most high profile racists, Diane Abbott and Lee Jasper both voted to remain!

    Good response by Greening – Abbott is one of the most stupid people ever to have stood in Parliament and is there solely on account of her race (or gender if that’s your perspective) It’s also good to see she takes such a keen interest in recent Global developments – as far as I’m aware the new Filipino President (nicknamed ‘The Punisher’ in the Western Press) made his name promoting vigilante killing groups to tackle rampant drug crime in…….. Davao City….
