It’s a double instalment of two-faced Chuka today. Last week Chuka played up his man of the people credentials in Manchester his way around Manchester before wooing executives from BAE and EADS. At the time he said he emphasised how he wanted to “reassure” them he had an “open mind”. Now the deal has fallen through the MP for Streatham and Shadow Minister for Arms Dealers is attacking it. At least we know who he puts first.
Meanwhile Chuka has been on a junket to Israel this week, but that’s not how he’s spinning it. Guido’s eyes and ears on the trip get in touch to shed some light:
“How they can call it a delegation to Israel and Palestine is beyond me; the Pali meetings were an ad hoc addition.”
Trying to have it both ways will always backfire Chuka…
