A taste of their own medicine

My friends, you'd need a heart of stone not to laugh at poor Chukka Umunna's plight. It seems his Liberal Democrat opponent, Chris Nicholson, is trying to make out the aspirant Labour MP comes from a “wealthy, privileged family background" and Chukka's getting all indignant about it posting open letters on his website.

Well I may be wrong, but I don't seem to remember Chukka decrying these tactics when they were used with disastrous consequences for his own party in Crewe.

Anyone? Anyone? Umunna? Anyone?

Mind you, you needn't fear that this Compass follower - you know, that group offering A Vision for the Democratic Left - is anything less than tough on crime. He is particularly proud of his grandfather's work as a British High Court judge, work in which he "earned a reputation for handing down particularly tough sentences to convicted rapists".

The hang 'em and flog 'em democratic left remains a force with which to be reckoned.
