    Labour MP Diane Abbott has won what is believed to be her biggest ever majority in Hackney North & Stoke Newington, getting 75 percent of the vote.
    She increased her majority by more than 11,000 to over 35,000.
    Humbled to receive an increased majority of over 35,000 in Hackney North & Stoke Newington.
    A vote for hope and a better Britain.
    Abbott has been repeatedly criticized in recent weeks for a string of car crash media interviews and gaffes.
    She pulled out of two major election events on Tuesday due to illness, amid relentless criticism from the Tories who say she is a weak link in Labour’s team.
    She has been replaced as shadow Home Secretary during a “period of ill health,” the party announced on Wednesday.
    Diane Abbott, under vociferous and relentless attack from virtually the entire British press, just increased her majority by over 11,000.

    Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has confounded his critics by turning a 24 point Conservative lead in the polls into a hung parliament. His startling turnaround has already been hailed as one of Labour’s biggest victories in years.
    Corbyn was laughed at by his own MPs, ridiculed by former Prime Minister David Cameron and vilified by rival Theresa May.
    Since his first election to the Labour leadership in September 2015, the majority of the UK’s press has routinely dismissed the Islington North MP as unelectable, incompetent and unpatriotic.
    Over the past two years he has endured a vote of no confidence, fought a successful re-election campaign, battled rebellions within his own partly and withstood embarrassing leaks to the media.
    Now it looks like the Leader of Her Majesty’s Most Loyal Opposition is the strongest politician in the country with a hitherto unseen momentum behind him.
