Diane Abbott: 'Trident is a huge amount of money to spend defending us from the Tory press'

Great debate last night from the five prospective Labour leadership candidates organised by the New Statesman (which is part of the same group as Press Gazette).

They weren’t asked any questions about media issues – such as libel, IFNCs etc, but there was one great apparently ad-libbed line from Diane Abbott explaining one of the reasons why she would scrap the Trident nuclear weapons system: “It’s a huge amount of money to spend to defend us from the Tory press”.
