L’Obama Anglais: “Already A Legend”Nothing Lost in Translation from Wikipedia

l'obama-anglais

Despite studying for a year at the University of Dijon in France, Chuka Ummuna spent thousands taking a translator on an official trip to Paris. He will view that as money well spent. In an article which will no doubt upset the golden one, the Le Monde newspaper has headlined him as “L’Obama Anglais” – the English Obama – and in a glowing profile says he looks like a Conservative MP wearing “suits custom-made in Savile Row” and “reciting Shakespearean sonnets without accent.” The paper tips Chuka to make it to 10 Downing Street and become Britain’s first black PM, apparently he won’t mind all the teasing from Guido because, according to Le Monde at least, “Chuka Umunna does not care. Already a legend, he longs to write a new page in British history.” A large number of his fellow Labour MPs already think he is more myth than legend.

Quote of the Day

Emily Thornberry tells Labour activists some home truths…

“…we must all acknowledge, that there are sickening individuals on the fringes of our movement, who use our legitimate support for Palestine as a cloak and a cover for their despicable hatred of Jewish people, and their desire to see Israel destroyed.”
