Chuka Added Obama Reference While At Work

When Chuka was fronted about using a pseudonym to promote himself as Britain’s Barack Obama on Wikipedia back in 2008, he went into face-saving denial mode, claiming “I don’t have any recollection of that log-in or any of the changes. But I can’t say for certain that someone with my campaign did not set up that log-in.” The Telegraph added that “sources close to Mr Umunna said it was possible that one of his campaign team in 2007, when he was trying to be selected to be Labour’s candidate for Streatham in the 2010 general election, set up the page.” But someone was telling porkies…

Today it is revealed that the reference to Chuka being Britain’s Barack Obama was made in January 2008 by IP 83.105.87.81. The IP address of law firm Rochman Landau LLP. As Chuka’s extensive Wikipedia page tells us, that is where he worked in January 2008. He tried to blame a mythical campaign aide and has been caught red handed. There is being two faced and then there is simple dishonesty…

As the Standard reminds us:

“In a 2011 newspaper interview the Streatham MP said of the Obama comparison: “It annoys me a bit. You get lazy journalists and the odd blogger who’ll suggest that I fancy myself as ‘Britain’s Obama’ and that I seek to encourage the comparison. It’s never been something I’ve encouraged.”

Yeah right.
