WANT a takeaway tipple but not sure which to try? Here is our can-do guide. We taste-tested eight tantalising tins after Shadow Home Secretary Diane Abbott was spotted swigging an M&S mojito on a train — and had to carry the can for breaking Transport for London rules. Giulia Crouch lifts the lid on marvellous mixes and those best left on the shelf. M&S Mojito, 250ml, £2.09 I wouldn’t drink this on the Overground or Underground or the 113 to Streatham station. It’s way too sweet. For a mojito you need fresh mint. “Mint flavouring” makes it tastes like toothpaste. Sorry, Diane. Rating: 1/5. Smirnoff & Cranberry Vodka Mixed Drink, 250ml, £1.99 Nothing to complain about here. Vodka cranberry doesn’t suffer from being pre-mixed and canned. It reminds me of drinking at 18 so this is a great trip down memory lane. Rating: 4/5. Gordon's Pink Gin & Tonic, 250ml, £1.99 When I’m sick of drinking beer at a … [Read more...] about We taste test eight cocktails in a can — but safely away from a train unlike Diane Abbott
A WOMAN allegedly assaulted by Julain Assange has made a furious criticism of Diane Abbott. The Shadow Home Secretary was accused of downplaying the allegations against the WikiLeaks founder. Labour frontbencher Abbott said in a televised interview that Assange had been wrenched from the Ecuadorean Embassy over cyber crimes, saying: "It's all about WikiLeaks."

The friend added: "She says it is about him treating people like s***, especially women." Assange spent the last seven years in the sanctuary of the Ecuadorean Embassy after he skipped bail in 2012 to avoid being extradited to Sweden where he faced allegations of raping one woman and sexually assaulting another in 2010. But both Abbott and Labour Leader Jeremy Corbyn said his arrest on Thursday was about politics. In a BBC interview, Abbott said he was targeted because Assange embarrassed the American … [Read more...] about Julian Assange ‘sex assault victim’ blasts Diane Abbott for downplaying allegations against Wikileaks founder
