Diane Abbott row overshadows Labour’s health policy

Political Editor

Krishnan Guru-Murthy: ‘You might argue we are seeing this week who both Labour and the Tories don’t mind upsetting. For Labour it seems to be the left, with many of them angry at how Diane Abbott is being treated, even though Keir Starmer still claims no decision has been made on whether she can stand again.
