Yellow: Chuma Umunna.

The MP who said he wouldn’t be seen dead in a yellow rosette has joined the Liberal Democrats.

This is the second change of party affiliation for Chuka Umunna within six months, as the former Labour MP for Streatham continues his quest to find a political party that can accommodate his personal ambition.

The simple fact is: He won’t find one.

This latest flirtation with the Lib Dems is happening because he saw them doing well in the European Parliament elections and thought they must be enjoying a revival; they aren’t.

The brief bounce happened because the Lib Dems positioned themselves as the ‘Party of Remain’ in elections that weren’t about Brexit at all, but which were presented as such to fool the voters.

People don’t live in ‘Remain’ or ‘Leave’ constituencies – they vote for the party whose policies reflect their own thinking, as Labour’s win in Peterborough demonstrates.

And Mr Umunna, once touted as a possible future head of the Labour Party, back in its New Labour days, will end his career as nothing more than a footnote.
