Documentary on Radio 4 at 11 this morning about the rormation of Change UK. Should at least be funnier than Radio 4's comedy output.

Every time I hear the name 'Change UK' I  keep imagining that their theme song should be 'A Change Would Do You Good' by Sheryl Crow. An alternative-'tinged' MOR pop rock single that was released in June 1997 just after Blair came in (and was inescapably playlisted to fuck for several years after on Virgin radio ) so appropriate for the era and vibe they're vainly trying to resurrect.

They put so much effort in to it, like my little boy straining on his potty.

it was very funny to hear Soubry say how disappointed she was in Ummuna. "he'd have made a great prime minister" - what, if he wasn't such a terrible, unprincipled politician?

That hasn't been a handicap for several PM's to date. Umunna is too insipid an individual to be a contender.

Soubry clearly had a massive crush on Chuka. This fact is quite funny.

Christ, the Lib Dems really will take anyone (meaning the latest defection to them. I didn't realise there was another page).

Meanwhile I've just had a look at the Change UK The Independent Group for Change's website. They've clearly given up as the last news item was from the end of July.

Any of them with an iota of sense has jumped ship to the Lib Dems for all the good it will do them. Most of them will just be deselected and cast into the former-MP abyss (of high paid consulting roles for NGOs and large businesses).
