Diane Abbott is renowned for giving car crash interviews, but last Friday she provided the absolute worst.  Speaking to Cathy Newman on Times Radio, Abbott was simply asked to name one policy of Jeremy Corbyn's she'd have liked Keir Starmer to retain.  What followed was almost one minute of stuttering, slurring, incomprehensible speech after which Newman was none the wiser.

As there is no accompanying video footage to the clip, so we've laid over some imagery for your viewing displeasure.

Was she drunk, stoned, suffering a stroke or something else?  The interview was reportedly recorded on Friday night, so the first option appears the most likely.
