Umunna to stand as MP for Cities of London and Westminster
« on: September 06, 2019, 05:22:21 PM »
Helen Thompson has tweeted she is resuming the role of Lib Dem PPC for Streatham.

Ironic how Umunna didn't want to have a by-election when he changed parties (twice) and now doesn't want to stand in Streatham at the next election.

He'll be standing against that charming man Mark Field.

Let's turn Streatham and Cities of London and Westminster red for Labour and show Umunna and Field!

If he gets beaten and loses his status as an MP I'll laugh my bollocks off.

Mr Umunna said: “I worked as a solicitor in the City and West End and I know they are the last places that should be represented by one of Mr Johnson’s MPs who has just voted to enable a no-deal Brexit.

“The City is the centre of international values, while the West End is home to our greatest creative industries. These centres are telling us that Brexit will be bad for them.”

2017 in that constituency:

Conservative / 18,005 / 46.6% / -7.5%
Labour / 14,857 / 38.4% / +11%
Lib Dems / 4,270 / 11.1% / +4.1%

Bring it on.

He's going to guarantee that the Tories keep it by stealing votes from Labour.

Depends on the Tory fall-away but yeah that is pretty much open war by Lib Dems on Labour given its a completely stupid seat to attempt to win. After Peterborough.

Surely Chuka appeals to the 'progressive' Tories more than Labour? Maybe I've been in the CaB bubble too long

In a just world his repellant characteristics would ensure he finished last, even behind that candidate who wants to ''crush the disabled into little tiny bits''

How is that not stealing votes from Labour? Apparently the 4000 gap between Tory and Labour in 2017 was a hard won effort on the part of the Labour candidate. And about 4000 voted for the Libdems. This new development seems  a counter strategy to "anyone but the Tories". And I'm pretty certain it also means that Umunna won't win and hasn't been offered a safe seat by his new friends. All it will do is fuck up Labour.

It is pretty funny that he's new friends haven't offered him a safe seat.

And also that he knows he wouldn't win in Streatham even though there was no need for a by-election because they people there voted for HIM because they love him.

If Umunna splits the anti-Tory vote Field might get back in.

Lib Dems came third in the seat in every election since 1987.

Well what I meant was Tories who don't like the Tory Party going full-Brexit party might vote Lib Dem instead of Tory. Might be far fetched.

Is there any point even talking about it, Westminister seems like the area that's pretty much always gonna be Lib Dem and Labour splitting the vote in a big way from each other surely?

If Chuka didn't run whatever other Lib Dem runs would probably do pretty well in a place like that (which surely is an FBPE stronghold?). If anything it seems a shame they couldn't find someone who isn't likely to receive a lot of resistance from Labour voters in the area.

I had totally presumed that he would have been gifted a safe seat, so this is pretty funny news. He's really fucked it up.

Then he’ll leave the lib dems, join the Tories, and the stitch up will be complete.

I am wondering if he's got some inside track that tells him he has a real shot at this seat. If he gets it, it's something of a wee coup for the little prick, isn't it?

Weren't the Lib Dems doing all women shortlists for a lot of seats this year? Not something I'm against at all, but it's a very lib dem kind of thing to not back down from, the opportunity of being able to brag about being the party with the highest proportion of women.
Can't imagine Chuka had too many options RE: safe seats as a result.
