I watched Chukka last week on the Brussels Broadcasting Corp speaking vehemently and irrationally why we must stay in the EU. Methought he did protest too much.
Look at it from the point of view of Labours political elite under Corbyn. They are out of office for the next 4 and a half years. Then in the 2020election they will be wiped out so not only no ministerial positions but they might well lose their seats. For an ambitious metropolitanista like Chukka thats a long time in the wildernes but if we are in the EU then his chums in Brussels can secure him a lucrative number to fill in time until 2025. But if we are not in the EU that avenue is closed. Disaster for Chukka and his political ambitions. He might have to start working for a living along with hundreds of other ex Spads.
Incidentally why was the holiday loving Bevan ever given the job of running the UK environment agency. Here is his CV according to Crick
Someone some where must have liked him.
