Diane Abbott on masculinity and role of men in society

Male MPs show "every type of patriarchal behaviour" said the shadow public health minister as she spoke about her speech on men to the Demos think-tank.

Diane Abbott claimed society and the economy had changed in ways which challenged issues around masculinity.

She debated her speech and ideas - and whether there should be a minister for men - with Ian Collins from LBC, former Labour pollster Deborah Mattinson and Andrew Neil on the Daily Politics.
