Amber Rudd, During a Jeremy Vine interview on BBC Radio 2 today discussing online and verbal abuse that MP’s received ‘clumsily’ called Diane Abbott “Coloured”.
Abbott has responded in her usual Woe betide me manner and called the comments “offensive and revealing choice of words”
The term “coloured”, is an outdated, offensive and revealing choice of words.

Now, im sure people of this parish will agree that this is all over blown and that offence is taken and not given. Should Amber apologise? I mean how does calling someone “coloured” differ from the ultra-PC “people of colour”?
Obviously becasue we live in the snowflake generation, where you cant fart without someone running behind you with air-freshener Amber Apologised:
Mortified at my clumsy language and sorry to @HackneyAbbott. My point stands: that no one should suffer abuse because of their race or gender.
