Your LabourList MP of the month – for the second time in a row is Chuka Umunna. He was the MP of the month last time we asked you to vote back in November (December was MP of the year) and he’s won you over again this month.
Umunna was instrumental in Labour’s handling of “banker’s bonuses”, and as shadow business secretary, he’s leading on many issues that are crucial to Labour at present – not least Ed Miliband’s “responsible capitalism” agenda. He’s also been a strong, confident and regular media performer since his elevation to the shadow team, and whilst may still be new to the shadow cabinet, here’s much more than just “one to watch”.
Other MPs who ran Umunna close this month included Andy Burnham (your most highly rated shadow cabinet member this month), as well as fellow 2010 intake high flyers Rachel Reeves and Stella Creasy. It seems that LabourList readers are keen on the new generation of Labour MPs but can anyone stop Umunna’s hot streak? Or will someone stop him making it three in a row?
That, LabourList readers, is entirely up to you…
