Chuka Umunna: “Marxists should have a place in the Labour family”

On 30 January Streatham Labour MP Chuka Umunna published an article in the Independent in which he said:

“The truth is that all of the shades of left – from your Marxists to your centre-left social democrats – should have a place in the Labour family.”

Without taking any responsibility for Umunna (who is on the Blairite wing of the party) or the wider argument in his article, this is a welcome surprise. We hope he means it. We’ll be contacting him to ask for support for expelled comrades’ fight for reinstatement – including in his constituency.
