did not see this one coming. Good for her. The Boys have nothing to say about Reading Pride, or Diane Abbott's visit to it, or her becoming a patron of it, so clearly she went there without their endorsement. Does not seem anyway that the Reading boys had a presence there. They endorsed Ed Miliband I believe. Perhaps because, like Mr Salter, he faced both ways on the Iraq war. I went to the first Reading Pride, towards the end of my time in Reading, and the Boys were not there then, though the Conservatives were. I had a terrific time. I'm glad the event is so successful and glad Diane Abbott is its first-ever patron - would be intrigued to know who she knows there. May it continue to flourish.
