London Muslim is delighted that Diane Abbott has just made it onto the ballot as one of the 5 candidates for leader of the Labour Party.
As I said previously the Labour Party still has individuals who are deeply racist and sexist so it is fantastic news that Diane has made it not only because she is black and a female but because she is the best candidate who offers hope to us all.
London Muslim notes how the andriod millipead tried to immediately claim this was all because of him, what a geek and god forbid a Blairite product of the Westminster village like him winning.
I do hope like Marc Wadsworth that the Muslim female MPs who were undecided ie Rushanara Ali and Shabana Mahmood supported Diane, one of the few friends Muslims have in the party and who now needs all Muslims in the Labour and Trade Union Movement to come out in strength and ensure we begin the journey to having our first Black Female PM inshallah.
***Update*** Rushanara Ali did support Diane
