According to Barry Gardiner MP, Diane Abbott MP for Hackney North and Stoke Newington has a “long term condition”. She has been asked to step down as shadow Home Secretary. Given the announcement from her party attributing her stepping down to health problems it would be fit and proper for her to make a statement about her health.
Ms Abbott tweeted yesterday:
Touched by all the messages of support. Still standing! Will rejoin the fray soon. Vote Labour!
