Shadow foreign secretary Emily Thornberry says: “When I heard Chuka Umunna last year talk about the main lesson to take from the Blair government, is don’t over-promise and under-deliver, I think Chuka had got it all wrong.”
Chuka Umunna, a leading opponent of Brexit, tweeted: “Tabling only 12 hours of debate and votes for 15 amendments shows this government is running scared of the Commons defeating them on the EEA and Customs Union.
Chuka Umunna (means “God is the greatest”) was born in 17 October 1978 to a Nigerian father and English-Irish mother. Chuka Harrison Umunna grew up in Streatham and attended local schools. It was at the Labour conference in October 2012 that it first really hit home.
