Phillips’ contribution to womanhood was to tell fellow Labour MP Diane Abbott to fuck off during a heated debate at a meeting of the Parliamentary Labour Party (PLP).

Phillip, MP for Birmingham Yardley MP, is upset that the four top jobs in party leader Jeremy Corbyn’s team have gone to men. She wanted a woman to get one or more of them, perhaps a woman like her a woman who in the heat of diplomacy told Ms Abbott what to do. As she says:
