Labour lovers reunited: Jeremy Corbyn and Diane Abbott in first public embrace since their 1970s
fling was revealed
It was the Labour love affair which stunned Westminster and raised questions about the relations at the top of the party. Days after Jeremy Corbyn gave fellow Left-wing MP Diane Abbott a frontbench job it emerged they enjoyed a 1970s ‘fling’ including a motorbike tour of Communist East Germany. Today the pair made their first public appearance since the revelations, embracing on stage at the Labour conference as Ms Abbott made her debut as a shadow cabinet minister.
