Diane Abbott’s son accused of assault on police officer!


The son of the bumbling shadow Home Secretary Diane Abbott has been charged over alleged attacks on police officers.

Former civil servant James Abbott-Thompson, 28, was arrested on Friday last week after an incident at the Foreign Office, where he used to work.

Police later charged him with two counts of assault by beating an emergency services worker and a public order offence.

Westminster Magistrates Court heard he is accused of spitting at and punching one officer and biting the thumb of another, reports MailOnline.

It is understood the incident started when he asked to speak to someone.

 Met Police spokespersons said: "James Adam Abbott-Thompson, 28, was charged on Sunday December 1 with two counts of assault by beating of an emergency services worker.

He was further charged with an offence under Section 4 of the Public Order Act. He appeared in custody at Westminster Magistrates' Court on Monday, December 2. 

He has granted bail and next appears at City of London Magistrates' Court on February 7.

Once Diane leaves the political stage, maybe James could step up to the mark. He'd be well suited for the modern Labour party. Watch this space!
