MP Diane Abbott Photographed Wearing 'Two Odd Shoes' At Polling Station
Hillier posted a photo of herself and Abbott outside a building, both wrapped up warm in coats and big scarves to protect themselves from the elements.
In a now-deleted post, Hillier wrote: "Great to link up with @HackneyAbbott to remind people to #VoteLabour #GeneralElection19 @HackneyLabour @SouthHackneyLab #Laboursisters."
But rather than focusing on any of the politics behind this historic day (or Hillier and Abbott's winter coats), many people found themselves distracted by something else: a pair of shoes.
Specifically, Diane Abbott's shoes, which appear to be an odd pair.
One person tweeted: "So Diane Abbott has emerged from hiding for voting day... with shoes that don't match."
Saying it looked like she was also wearing two left shoes from the different pairs, another added: "The Shadow Home Secretary @HackneyAbbott turning up to vote with TWO LEFT SHOES ON."

Others started to argue that the image could have been doctored in some way. Either way, it seems Abbott probably doesn't give two hoots, as she's since tweeted to encourage people to 'wear what you want' when voting.
Singer Jamelia tweeted to say she wasn't sure what to wear to the polling station as a first time voter, adding that she was only 'kinda' joking.
Always wear what you want.
And always vote Labour :grinning: https://t.co/6P6kEj4l41

Abbott replied to the star, telling Jamelia and others: "Always wear what you want."
She added: "And always vote Labour."
While who you vote for is entirely up to you, I can definitely get behind the first mantra. And if that means wearing two left shoes from two different pairs of shoes, then so be it.
Wear whatever the hell you want - just do make sure you get out there and vote.
