Arrogant Chuka Umunna: London is “Full of Trash”

Regular Guido readers will be familiar with the theory that Shadow Business Secretary Chuka Umunna is a two faced hypocrite. When the cameras are gone, the former City lawyer is very different from the polished Obama-lite, leader-in-waiting, man-of-the-people image that he tries to cultivate. Well today that image is going to take a mighty dent as Chuka’s 1%er past comes crashing down around him. You bet he wishes he was in his Ibiza pad today…

The Labour MP for Streatham used to be a member of the exclusive, invitation only social networking group ASMALLWORLD, nicknamed ‘Myspace for Millionaires’. While cruising for a safe Labour seat between 2006 and ’08 Umunna secretly used his middle name “Harrison” to organise his jet-set life, flitting between Miami and London nightspots with other members like Tiger Woods, Paris Hilton and Quentin Tarantino. Well we always knew he was a champagne socialist, but it gets worse…

In a rant on the site, under his fake name, lamenting how bad London is, the London MP described London as being “full of trash”. Just last year, under his real name, the London MP told the Standard that he could not “envisage myself moving anywhere else.” If he thinks his constituents are trash, he might want to re-think that one…

UPDATE: Jetrosexual Chuka has said sorry via a spokesperson:

“Though his user account on the site still exists, he has not posted a thread on the site for many years, since long before he was elected as a Member of Parliament. In terms of the post from 2006, these were comments made on a private social network well over half a decade ago. Though light-hearted in tone and context, and made long before he became an MP, Chuka accepts the choice of words used were not appropriate and apologises if any offence may have been caused.”
