Diane Abbott is deluded to defend Socialist Venezuelan leaders who have utterly betrayed their own people

DELUDED Diane Abbott once claimed that Venezuela showed the world “another way” to run an economy.

It certainly has.

The Marxist regime’s GDP has collapsed by a third in four years as billions made from oil reserves were squandered.

Under a socialist leadership praised by Abbott for protecting the poor, minimum wages have crashed 75 per cent.

Food is so hard to come by that the average Venezuelan now weighs 19lb less than five years ago.

This economic catastrophe has dwarfed any other in US, Western European or Latin American history.

The Sun on Sunday today reveals that the Venezuelans paid for her trip to observe president Hugo Chavez’s election victory in 2012.

Abbott said polls in the South American country were “less liable” to fraud than in Britain.

That claim has blown up in her face as the country has been torn apart by election corruption.

More than 100 protesters have died but the silence of Abbott has been deafening.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn remains equally mute about the beatings and killings ordered by current President Nicolas Maduro, his political friend.

Corbyn and Abbott are dyed-in-the-wool socialists and apologists for leaders who have utterly betrayed their people.

Bound by dangerous ideology and foolish economic illiteracy, they must never be allowed the keys to Downing Street.


No repeat of Charlie pain

AMID the countless claims and counter-claims in court it was easy to forget the very personal human tragedy of tiny Charlie Gard.

But no one could fail to be moved by reading the heartbreaking details of his final hours with his shattered parents.

Connie and Chris have been crystal clear that they do not blame the doctors and nurses who cared for Charlie and eased his final moments.

But it is plain that they do blame faceless hospital managers for freezing them out over Charlie’s treatment.

They won’t be the last parents to turn to the courts for help over a gravely ill child.

Maitlis must be new Neil

NO ONE exposed the weakness and shiftiness of politicians better during the last General Election than Andrew Neil.

He had Jeremy Corbyn floundering on Trident and Theresa May squirming uncomfortably on social care.

But his departure gives BBC bosses the perfect moment to show some commitment to equal opportunity.

They should give the job to Emily Maitlis. And make sure she gets the same money.
