Diane Abbott's car crash interview with LBC caused waves of both hilarity and agony as people listened to it.
During the interview, the Shadow Home Secretary struggled to come up with a final cost for Labour's policy to put 10,000 more police officers on the street - at one time, claiming that each one would cost £30 per year.
This is how Twitter responded.

Spoiler: It isn't good news for Labour.
There's no need for any Conservative party election broadcasts - they can just replay Diane Abbott's LBC interview in every PEB slot.— David Vick (@DavidVick5) May 2, 2017
