This moron should just accept his career selling people out unofficially off what little notoriety he's accumulated instead of selling them out officially.

Chuka completely sh*fted himself when he turned on his party leader. 
Watch out Lib Dems - he'll probably do it again someday.

Chuka believes in the people having their say. Except for the people in his constituency. They can F#

The Lib Dems under Tim Farron talked not about a "People's Vote", but a "first referendum on the deal". As such, any second referendum, in order to be democratically legitimate, should be between the Withdrawal Agreement and no deal, with Remain firmly off the ballot (that question was settled three years ago).

Of course, the Lb Dems will never go for that because, despite their protestations, a "People's Vote" is not a neutral solution to parliamentary deadlock, but a biased effort by Remainers to overturn the result, and as such a second referendum is only advocated by hardline Remainers. If they cared about democracy, 'Remain' wouldn't be on the second ballot.

By the way, I remember Chuka Umunna on the BBC on the morning of 24th June 2016 saying to David Dimbleby that Brexit must happen even if Leave wins "by just one vote"...
What first attracted you to the electorally successful Illiberal Anti-Democrats from the hopeless failure CUK Party?

Chuka Umanna: a comedy act which keeps on giving. His ego readily observable from space; his intellect and political integrity yet to be seen.
I think Chuka is right. The Labour party is anti semetic and racist, he is making a wise choice in leaving to join the liberals.

He will join any party he thinks will stop us leaving the EU, he is not giving up on that EU future employment and huge second pension .
Busy constituents of Umunna can buy an app now that tracks which party he's in.

I can no longer trust this guy chuka Umanna.
He pretends he care about this country but the truth is he only cares about his own career.
3 parties in 6months?

Genuine question, answers please. If Chucka changed to the monster raving looney party, would they have their first member of Parliament ?
Ding Dong
He'll be on the Tory front bench shortly !!
