Labour Party statement on Diane Abbott Tweet

“We disagree with Diane’s tweet. It is wrong to make sweeping generalisations about any race, creed, or culture. The Labour Party has always campaigned against such behaviour – and so has Diane Abbott.”

Update: Abbott is reported to have apologised:

“I apologise for any offence caused. I understand people have interpreted my comments as making generalisations about white people. I do not believe in doing that.”

Update: Paul Waugh has more from a “Senior Labour Source”:
