Blair and Mandy Lay It on Thick For Chuka

The hand of Blair is on Chuka’s shoulder in George Parker’s feature for tomorrow’s FT Weekend magazine. “A close ally of the former Prime Minister” gives him a glowing reference, with Mandy also piling on the praise. Still no escaping that awkward Wikipedia-editing business though:

“So inevitable, indeed, that a Wikipedia entry apparently originating from the wannabe MP’s campaign team – but not written by him, he insists – helpfully drew attention to the “British Obama” way back in 2007, in case anyone might have missed them. When news of this Wiki-doctoring emerged this year, David Cameron taunted Umunna, the MP for Streatham, in the House of Commons: “Can we change our Wikipedia entry? Yes we can.” Umunna, 34, claims to hate the parallels – the construct of “lazy journalists”, he once said – and glowered at Cameron, disgust written across his face. He would not have seen it, but some of those laughing loudest were behind him on the Labour benches.”

Ouch. At least he is very, very sorry about calling Londoners trash:

“Of course it was a stupid thing to say. I wasn’t even a candidate at that point but I’m really sorry and regret what I said. I’ve never pretended to be a saint and to have never said stupid things in the past.”

Other gems include a young Chuka’s voice appearing on the theme tune to Mr Bean when he was a chorister at his local Cathedral and a special mention for a certain parody twitter account. And, for the avoidance of doubt, his name rhymes with cooker…

    so there I was trying to recover from a nasty time with with sciatica , resting in the garden, enjoying the sun and the warm when suddenly, out of the skies come several low flying jets who continue in the sky above me for two more hours – one about 100 ft above the house roof – are we being invaded or what? who gives these bastards the ability to do this? oh I know the unaccountable DoH – bastards

    Chuka Mike Hammer says:

    Streatham: I’ll never go there anymore… well, that’s what it says in the song and that’s what I tell myself every time I wander along its trashy sidewalks, but I always go there some more. Savile Row – to the man who writes the encyclopedia, it’s an avenue in London extending from Vigo Street to the junction of Maddox and Conduit at Hanover Square. When I go there, I don’t see anything but a land of pawnshops and flophouses, peopled by trash and missionaries and God bless the latter.

    I know Chuck will be checking this thread out, so let me just tell him.
    You got caught doing something that will never allow you to become leader of your party with an ounce of integrity, let alone become our first Black PM.
    Hope you think those few little words were worth it you beyond arrogant banker.

    Wrong, I laugh at Chuka because I percieve him to be an hypocritical, bullshitting twat. What’s more, I’d wager most percieve him that way too.

    I personally think Chukka would make s splendid President, sorry, did I say President? I meant Prime Minister.
    He’s certainly a smart and well dressed fellow and by all accounts, as big a hit with the ladies as he is with the more reptilian members of his won party.

B.liarism kills! Time for Labour to purge themselves of the evil, self-serving B.liarites. Once & for all!

    West Country? They don’t count. They talk funny. They pronounce their trailing “R’s” the way most Yanks do. And apparently the way the Guido’s don’t.
    Would you call what most English do “Arrhotica”?

    ” How can this be? the teacher is so advanced that without exerting any energy he is able to draw the 100lb bow effortlessly”

    Now we’re going to have to investigate you thoroughly, just like our US counterparts do when that phraseology has been used.

    Are there any tax evasion matters you would like to confess to before we even start, Mr Umunna? It’ll go easier for you in the long run if you come clean.

    Anyone else she NHS murderer Alan johnson complaining about the Zimmerman case on This week last night?

    As usual because a jury didn’t come up with the verdict the left like Johnson called is a travesty and couldn’t understand how he could be found not guilty.

    Of course not alan, in between killing thousands of people in the NHS and fucking up the economy you clearly have no idea of democracy do you?

    WE can all argue the rights and wrongs of Zimmerman challenging Martin, we can all argue the rights and wrongs f the stand your ground law, but the BOTTOM LINE was the jury had to make a decision based on the evidence put before them and I for one saw nothing that would have allowed anyone to consider a verdict of guilt beyond reasonable doubt, unless Johnson like all lefty mongs assumes any black person killed is always an innocent victim regardless?

    The link below basically outlines why a not guilty verdict was the only one. Alan Johnson is a fucking twat and should stick to killing people in the NHS, something he, Burnham and Labour are expert at.

    It couldn’t be because he’s terribly wealthy and will make it worth their while could it?

    This pair do absolutely nothing, do they? out of the goodness of their heart or for worthwhile charitable ends – mind I suppose they’d claim lining their own pockets is a worthwhile charitable end.

    Odd thing isn’t it about labour? They sold themselves as the party of the people – the only party who had compassion and would look after everyone.

    Then they got into power and decided to wage war on Iraq sending our soldiers to a war front without proper equipment and killing them in large numbers and killed thousands of Iraqi’s.

    They then killed off industry by introducing welfare benefits so generous people didn’t want to work

    And then to make sure their destruction was complete they reduced the NHS to a killing machine with less compassion for the sick and elderly than is found in a russian gulag!

    saw Chucker in Boujis last year sitting next another man in vip lounge with hands on each other’s thighs all smiles. No wonder Mandy and Tone like him, he carries the torch for the gay cabal at the heart of new Labour. There is also a rumour he got done for importuning at a certain London station public convenience so another thing he has in common with Bliar. Obviously I’m not a lefty but this lad just comes across as smug and mouthy, not particularly intellectual. Worst of all he is shamelessly on the make and very pleased with himself – reminds me a bit of actor Ben Stiller – the ego eclipses the talent.

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
