You cant beat the champagne socialists for a good slosh of hypocrisy 😉

I was thinking the same thing a couple of weeks ago. Unfortunately for him, I suspect the headline punsters and investigative hacks would have a bit of a field day.
But Labour isn’t exactly brimming over with fresh talent, is it?

there are plans afoot to clean up the lobbying industry in the uk
“As anticipated, the government’s plans for transparency regulations for the influence industry have lobbyists’ fingerprints all over them. The proposals lack both breadth and depth: they would reveal on only a tiny proportion of the industry, and then no meaningful information. The lobbying industry has triumphed here. This is what they want; a partial system of minimal disclosure.

I predict…This guy
As leader of the Labour Party ? ….you having a laugh ? ?
For a start he’s black …… we don’t do black political party leaders in Britain. Besides, the Labour party isn’t that open minded……all applicants must be middle class and white – vulgar working class and dark candidates need not apply.
Secondly, he’s got 18 months experience as an MP …… 18 months job experience and you think he can lead a party ? !
And thirdly, he would represent zero improvement on Ed Milliband. The geezer is a walking talking incarnated version of the Guardian. Expect nothing more from him than muddled waffling fence-sitting bollox…….“we’re just like the Tories but so much nicer”. The unelected bishops in the House of Lords, and a handful of LibDem peers, are doing a better job of challenging the government than that useless herbert.Posted 6 years ago
