I chose Diane Abbott as ‘a woman who makes London great’. I wrote:
Diane has been the brunt of incredible racism. She has been the subject of sickening comments and the fact that she has survived and continues to serve her constituency is in itself heroic. While not everything she says is well spoken it is a characteristic of the brave that they often say things that controversial or even incorrect, not out of malice but out of their sense of justice. If the size of our valor is to be measured by the size and viciousness of our enemies then Diane Abbott must be judged amongst the most valourous.
