A chasm is growing in Britain, leaving many of us behind. Why haven't we redressed the balance? Labour's Diane Abbott issues a call to arms to end this oppression.
Labour MP for Hackney North and Stoke Newington since 1987, Diane was the first black woman to be elected to the House of Commons, and has been described by the BBC as 'a maverick, a freethinker, willing to rebel against the party machine’. Currently the Shadow Minister for Public Health, she is one of Labour's most prominent front-bench politicians.
