In a piece by Ash Sarkar in the Guardian with a lot of sound points this is but one…

The Independent Group for Change tried, and failed, to dominate media-tised politics by doing a passable impressions of politicians they had seen elsewhere.

Glad to see you’re a convert to the cult of Ash, WBS.

She’s the biz, and a sign of hope in herself.

The party formerly known as Change UK was meant to be Umunna’s En Marche!: an electoral vehicle whose acronym sounded a bit like his first name, capable of reviving the centre ground through sheer will alone. Unfortunately for Umunna, the centre ground was still occupied by its prior tenants. There’s no substitute for knowing where your voters are when they’re not on Twitter. What’s more, he had learned the wrong lesson from Emmanuel Macron. Had Umunna been paying attention, he would have been schooled in what happens when centrist illusions make contact with reality. The defining social forces of our time – nationalism, inequality, an ageing population – are not so forgiving of flights of political fancy as the commentariat can be to a beguiling posho on the telly.

Ouch!
