Chukapedia Gives the Game Away

Chuka Umunna has been telling today’s Lobby lunch how he is not quite a socialist, letting slip that he would rather be called a “democratic socialist”. A phrase he is keen on it seems. The pseudonym famously used by “one of his campaign team” to edit his own Wikipedia page was “Socialdemocrat”.

Delicate flower Chuka has been cryptically moaning to his audience about “certain right-wing blogs who don’t even want to hear my voice”. Not true at all, Guido wants to hear him squeal like a little piggy…

      15 minutes is enough Stop being greedy says:

      Democratic socialist could mean letting somebody else represent being a MP today, another tomorrow, another the next day. You have had your lot. Then seeking the limelight. Well there’s plenty of wannabees waiting their turn. Just disappear when a camera appears. Stop being greedy.

      Gooey Blob says:

      I don’t believe Chuka for one minute. If he were a social democrat he would not be at ease with the lurch to the medium-hard left under Miliband.

      So prove it Chuka! Resign from the front bench to speak out for a more Blairite agenda. Then, when Miliband loses heavily in 2020 you can stand for the leadership and get elected. Come on, show us that you’re really centre-left, not self-centred!


      • 81
        Gooey Blob says:

        Oops, I meant to say 2015, not 2020. There’s no way Miliband will still be leader by the end of next year…

          It’s fair to say, there are more similarities in policy between the LibLabCon, than there are differences.

          But that is no suprise when 75% of laws are influenced or set by the European Union.

          With only 25% of policy remaining with which to differentiate betweem the parties it stands to reason there are going to be closer together than they are apart.

          A cosy social democracy if you like.

        Social democracy is the new communism. Pink is now red in tooth and claw but still pretending not to be.

      Nice article, Guido, make Chuka squeal!

      I once met a nice American lady who said “I am a fiscally-aware Democrat”. I burst out laughing, and to be fair, she chuckled too…

        …..You are not free if you are limited in life by disability,e.g. wounded soldiers,industrial accidents,drunk drivers etc….Life on bennies not so attractive!

        Village Idiot says:

        ……A life on bennies is not much freedom when you are disabled,through industrial injury,wounded as a soldier,crippled by a drunk driver or the unfortunate recipient of medical negligence!…..Life must be extremely limiting and offer little in the way of “Freedom”…..just persecution,pain and poverty!!

    Take a look at yourselves, do you even belong in todays Britain, most of you are throwbacks to the 1800’s, I cant believe you get away with this!

    Then again knowing mr (shit)staines background re hang mandela and other Tory youth stupidity its probably him writing half these posts, he never has had the courage of his convictions.

    I’ll be whatever you want me to be,non descript,all things to all men..oh and women,not forgetting gay lesbians and transsexuals of course.(Don’t tell the Muslims I said that).
    Ideology? yes I got a B- in the subject I think.


    • 73
      Seriously, listen to Chuka... says:

      There is rumor that Saint Chuka took time out of his busy political / charitable / philanphropic life to reach out and connect with all people. He had a reversible sex change to identify with the transgender mutants folks, several gay relationships with both men and women, and a few hetero ones as well both as a man and a woman. Chuka also had elective experimental surgery to show solidarity with the NHS in order to become white for a day so as he could experience full diversity.

      Word is that Chuka has plans to learn juggling, how to play the piano, drum, all that other difficult stuff that nice Mr Balls likes to do, and get elected leader and supreme master of the Universe – but that latter point may just be one of Owen Jones’s fabrications.

      Seriously – I listened to Chuka and it changed my life, in many positive ways. Chuka is in tune with the cost of living he has even helped me save money on my Labour party membership fee.

      There was also a woman in a blue dress sitting behind Dave at PMQs yesterday paying not the slightest attention to the proceedings as she was so engrossed in her phone.

      Why do we pay these people?


      • 74
        Dave never had a plot, apart from cash says:

        We need some wallflowers you know

        To give the impression that we loive wimmin rather than just shagging them

        Did you see Guido’s associate Penny Mordaunt wet herself when I notices her yesterday?

      McDonnell is a typical Labour little red rat.
      McDonnell uses pathetic words such as bigot to try to stop voters moving to UKIP while his union, RMT, is anti EU and anti free movement of EU workers in to the UK.
      Two faced hypocrite.

      A bit like an eggy fart then?


      • 43
        Prof Hawkins says:

        Yes,certainly in comparison to the gas giant Abbott which has it’s own moon called ‘Portillo’ which cannot escape Abbotts gravitational pull being so close together on the sofa.


        • 67
          H. Boson says:

          He is usually seen at superior conjunction to the Abbott though the BBC will be doing something about that I’m sure.
          This will not last however as owing to the mass of the Abbott, Portillo appears to orbit within the Roche radius and is therefore subject to tidal forces of said Abbott and therefore doomed.


          • Prof Hawkins says:

            I agree.Portillo to be consumed in a ‘grey hole’ which Abbott no doubt posses by now.


          • H. Boson says:

            Yes, a very sad and tragic end.
            The effect on the great Brillo cloud is still under discussion however it is suspected that once the Portillo is no more, the Abbott will too, go to the wall.

    They are coining it everywhere covering up generalised fraud in the banks, BBC, Press and Parliament, organising industrial scale tax dodging, threatening all and sundry for Russian oligarchs and other rich scum –

    All in the name of the Rule of Law

    If Chuka is a delicate flower

    He must be a cousin of Flower Power

    Do they have the same supplier?

    Or hairdresser?

    Or go to the same rehab centre?

    A democratic socialist?

    Of course, he uses offshore tax dodges to avoid Inheritance Tax and has a second home, sorry villa, on the party island of Ibiza.

    I hear it good authority that if he’s mocked by this blog, he’s hated by many ordinary Labour members.

      Not all will be there in another two years. Miliband will go down with the ship in 2015 and being associated with a second successive defeat ought to be curtains for Balls’ front-bench career. The experienced Johnson saw the writing on the wall long ago and jumped ship. Others may follow.
