Female MP abuse 'puts women off politics' says Diane Abbott per BBC News

This BBC report informs us about one side of the incident last week:

'Women may be deterred from entering politics because of abuse suffered by female MPs, Diane Abbott says.

The shadow home secretary said she was speaking out about her own experiences after recently receiving a series of threats and insults.

Last week Brexit secretary David Davis was branded "sexist" for reportedly sending a text saying he would not hug Ms Abbott because he was "not blind".

His spokeswoman said he was "very sorry" for any offence caused.'

Oddly the pro Labour Party BBC don't find the space to report that prior to David Davis sending that text there was an incident in the House of Commons when David Davis congratulated Diane Abbott for supporting the Government bill on Article 50 only to be told to "fuck off" by the 'honourable lady'.

I suppose that the BBC don't want to sully the reputation of the pure of heart and mouth Diane Abbott...
