During last night’s episode of "This Week" – http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/programmes/bbc_parliament/7352891.stm with Andrew Neil, Michael Portillo and Diane Abbott, the Cheeky Girls were brought on as guests.
Andrew Neil asked Ms Abbott a question on the economy, at which point she deflected the question by asking "I’d rather know what the Cheeky Girls think about the economy?"
What a cheap shot from a clearly embittered lady. Later on she asked the Cheeky Girls "what do you think are the differences between Gordon Brown and President Ceaucescu?"
What is wrong with her? Was this a feeble attempt to appear intellectually superior to a couple of slim, attractive young women?
Thank goodness the girls didn’t respond by asking Ms Abbott to stand up and sing a pop song. After the realignment of Freeview frequencies this week blew up thousand of top boxes, Ms Abbott performing might just have blown up the TVs as well…
