  1. Chuka Umunna is expected to want to run to be LibDem leader within 12 months

    He will have changed their name a dozen times in that period, and his own at least three times.

  2. He’ll need to become leader in the less than that if he wants it – all the current signs suggest an autumn election in which on current numbers he is unlikely to retain his seat… I can’t say my heart will bleed for him.

    If the Lib Dems do have him as leader, all I can say is they are much more stupid than I ever thought possible, although in fairness it’s not as if the field of potential candidates is particularly large or brilliant!

  3. To even accept him shows a distinct lack of political insight. Their recent rise in the polls has really fried their brains. Once Brexit is done & dusted they’ll be back to the usual single digit support, and Chuckie will be as yesterday’s Big Mac carton.

  4. Their recent rise in the polls has really fried their brains.

    I’m tempted to ask “What brains?”, but at every single mid-term by-election that I can recall over the last 50 years, the Liberal (Democrat)s have done quite well. Their instant response is “return to your constituencies and prepare for government”. The triumph of hope over experience.

  5. Is this the same Chuka Umunna who once pulled out of a previous Labour leadership contest because he couldn’t take the pressure?

  6. Animatronic LinkedIn profile Chukka Umbongo is the British Jesus Hussein Obama, and if you don’t believe me, just look up the Wikipedia page he edited.

  7. Nothing but good news .The resurgent centre needs every man on deck if we are to beat the closet racists and Stalinists currently controlling the dead beat constitution that is strangling the country .
    Chukka is of course hated by the far left , he has brains ambition and would like to do good where he can .. what a wanker eh.

    Jeepers when he could be spending his time blaming darkies for the price of cheese rehabilitating protectionism and making us poor

    Double wanker

  8. Yeah what was him quitting all about in the end? Did anyone get to the bottom of it? There were some rumours at the time but never seemed conclusive.

  9. He’s a choker.

    He choked in the Labour election which elected Corbyn and he has choked with his new party.

    He will amount to nothing. So yeah, probably running that party is 18 months.

  10. Steve,

    “Animatronic LinkedIn profile Chukka Umbongo is the British Jesus Hussein Obama, and if you don’t believe me, just look up the Wikipedia page he edited.”

    Oh God, that’s stuck with me now. He’s just like the sort of person I get sending me LinkedIn requests about “improving my business performance”.

  11. He’s left it too late. He needed to have defected before the leadership contest opened, not after it closed. It’s going to be Jo or Ed, and neither of them are going to stand down within a year, and neither of them are a Chris Huhne.

  12. Tractor Gent,

    “Once Brexit is done & dusted they’ll be back to the usual single digit support, and Chuckie will be as yesterday’s Big Mac carton.”

    I’m not so sure. Much of their support is about Brexit, but I also think Corbyn is losing Labour voters from the more moderate end of Labour support. And Corbyn is trying to kick the moderates out of Labour.

    Against that, the Lib Dems are not in strong 2nd place in many seats, so a lot of those turning to them will essentially be doing so as a protest vote. The Lib Dems have historically been able to poll mid-teens while remaining a protest option, so single-figures don’t inevitably beckon, but to sustain mid-high 20s, low 30s kind of territory strikes me as unlikely. Lots of voters feel gravely tempted to protest, but when faced with a ballot paper, would rather mark their cross for a meaningful (if not pleasant) choice.

  14. Mr in G, and to think I correspond with you.

    Mind you, I’m on first name terms with at least well-known characters of varying degrees of unsavouriness.

    Stones and glass houses…

  15. Well I guess your rogues are serial killers and child molesters, I can’t see you stooping as low as politicians.

    To make things worse, I strongly suspect link 2 to Mz Abbott is Baron Mandelson of Foy and of Hartlepool.

  16. Chuka Umpalooma

    Weekend Humour / Satire – whatever it’s amusing, but sadly too true

    Just home to find the postman has left me a small padded envelope.

    Inside, a life-size Rory Stewart. No instructions, and no obvious use. Mounted on a stick, it might do for a bird scarer; or, with a suitable model toadstool, an admirable garden gnome. If I was keen on modelling The Lord of the Rings, it would make an ideal young Gollum. But I’m not.

    You can’t put him in the recycling – there’s already a huge excess of useless crypto-Blairite politicians – and I can’t send him back, since we have no idea where he suddenly sprang from. Perhaps he could be Jo Brand’s plus one next time the Star Wars franchise is casting Jabba the Hutt. Fold neatly, slip in envelope, and place in box for charity shop.”

    : )

  17. “Is this the same Chuka Umunna who once pulled out of a previous Labour leadership contest because he couldn’t take the pressure?”

    Yes. He’d probably ran out of moisturiser…

  18. Jesus, BiG, Mandy’s disgusting.

    Both of mine are pols. One a charming reprobate you wouldn’t trust as far as you could throw, the other ascheming, malevolent shrew.

  19. If he had any ability he would have arranged to bring tiggers with him and a condition would be that he gets elected leader, now. He didn’t so he doesn’t. But we knew that. He didn’t even want to be leader of the tiggers.

  20. Facepainter–Chukka –or Upchukka as he should better be known–is a false traitorous and deceitful SOS. Like Camoron , a worthy hier to the immorality of Bliar just without even the tiny glimmer of talent as a liar/conman that C’moron had.

    Eg–Twitter has on it the tweet that your new EU hound tapped out in 2014 saying he was Labour’s man and would NEVER wear the yellow rosette. “And that is a Chukkapromise”.

    You are the lowest scum on this planet Face–and Upchukka is the lying stooge for you.

  21. M’Lud,

    That doesn’t narrow it down very much.

    In fact, it doesn’t narrow it down at all.

  22. Like the joke about running from a lion, he doesn’t need talent, he just needs to be less rubbish than the competition.

    Is that hard?

  23. His name is Chuka fucking Umunna, for chrissake. The only way he could lose the LibDem race would be if a Muslim drag queen jumped into the race.
