Two-Faced Chuka Falls Out With Own Party, Again

Two-faced Chuka Umunna has managed to make himself even more unpopular with his own party. Emails leaked to Guido reveal that Chuka backed out of a meeting organised by Labour MPs to discuss human rights in Colombia when he refused to agree to their line condemning the situation in the country. He offered the feeble excuse of having to attend a trade union event instead, of all things to present an award for human rights. As one exasperated Labour aide exclaimed to colleagues in the heated email exchange:

“It is just ironic that he cannot agree to a position in opposition to the Colombia Free Trade Agreement on the grounds of Human Rights and cannot meet MPs to talk about this because he is presenting an award at the Human Rights Awards!!”

Chuka taking a tough line on human rights in public and doing the opposite in private? Surely not…

      Chuka Enters the Political Radar Cover. says:

      So someone in Labour is briefing against Chuka and using a popular political blog as the conduit for their treachery.

      This can only be good news for Chuka and a feather in hid cap.

        UKIP, the finale solution says:

        Pity he wont be visiting the relatives of the thousands of white farmers murdered by blacks, he wont be making any human rights sermons to the ANC about ethnic cleansing, he will be sucking up to the corrupt thugs of the ANC and trying to squeeze out some good publicity shots for his stooge media while reaching for the foreign aid chequebook. Of course he will have to play 2nd fiddle to the 3rd worlds tin pot dictators but thats a small price to pay to shine up his image.

        The best bit from above LoL

        Naturally, since Mandela’s passing on Thursday, people around the world have started using “Madiba” as well. It’s surely meant as a show of love and admiration for the great man and his achievements. But, deliberately or not, that habit can feel at times a bit like appropriation – an attempt to imply some connection to Mandela’s life, and perhaps a degree of ownership over his legacy. It doesn’t help that non-South Africans who use “Madiba” are often white Westerners who have little or no connection to his country or his struggle against apartheid, but nonetheless argue that Mandela would surely share their political views. Nor does it help that the habit seems most common in the United States and Britain, two countries that worked against Mandela in the 1970s and ’80s and widely embraced him as a hero only after he was released from prison in 1990.

          Saint Marxist-Madiba of Bombing and Flaming Necklaces says:

          Yes, I know that SA is now the murder, rape and AID’s capital of the world.

          Unemployment and poverty, are higher than when the ANC took power.

          EVERY member of my family is now a multi-millionaire.

          The ANC has an openly racist policy towards non-black South Africans.

          I was a lifelong terrorist, trained in Algeria and Ethiopia, by fellow communist’s.

          And that I ordered the murder of at least 50,000 Inkatha party members because they looked likely to win in Natal, which meant the ANC would not form the government, is entirely overlooked.

          Yet here today, I have been elevated to sainthood, by the Global Elite and re-invented as a kindly old man, who would never harm a fly.

    What about our human rights. The right to privacy.

    When Google invaded all our privacy with their streetview cars looking over walls. The argument was that it was a one time event. It would always be out of date. So the stupid dim backward inhabitants of the ICO said they would allow it.

    Now Google has made it possible for user input. Anyone with an Android phone can now contribute. Every day, every where, any position, at any level of magnification.

    So how will the ICO control our privacy now? How will we know we have been targeted. Will we need a new law to combat harassment by exposure. Since harassment via the courts is impossible it would have to be via the police.

    Once the ability to photograph and publicise private property was allowed, it just a matter of degree as to what is acceptable.

    There is a law to stop fences higher than 2m but no law to stop photographing over them. Wake up to the voters. They are the ones that are suffering the thefts.

    In the end it is a database searchable and containing facts about private property. So why do the government not force Google to filter the images and box out all private land. Simply because Google supplies what the government wants. They do evil.

      I wonder if Brown is going to get a fare paying passenger removed from First Class, so that he can upgrade himself and commandeer his seat.

      This is what one flight attendant had to say about him:

      Rude and dismissive. No manners. Came down to speak to him and John Smith on the way to New York – just looked at me and turned away……And they’d both been upgraded as well. (John Smith and Gordon Brown that is)

      They will be whisked from the airport to their high security hotels and embassy residences in blacked out limousines, oblivious to the suffering and poverty of the “newly liberated”Rainbow Nation, the violence, the drugs, the rapes and murders will not impinge into their cosy world of self delusion and blind stupidity.

    On the subject of Obama (well, the UK's answer to him anyway)... says:

    how is it that Obama can go to Mandela’s memorial service but he couldn’t find anyone in his administration to attend Thatcher’s funeral? Thatcher helped the overthrow of communism and the Yanks couldn’t even show some gratitude.

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
