Mr Umunna posted his intention to stand for the leadership of the Labour Party on his Facebook page – so Vox Political has posted a response there, as follows:
“Chuka, you’re a member of Blue Labour, with some very poor ideas about the benefit system; you’re supported by Peter Mandelson, one of the architects of neoliberal New Labour; and you recently said a Labour government would invite Michael Heseltine – MICHAEL HESELTINE – to become an advisor.
“You would turn the Labour Party into exactly what the SNP and its supporters called us – Red Tories.
“On no account should you become the leader of the Labour Party. If you did, it would not be the Labour Party any more.”
Does anybody think Umunna would do anything other than turn Labour into a pale imitation of the Conservative Party? Shouldn’t Labour be kicking his kind of politician out, rather than promoting them?
