I say! Over in the red corner, there's Chuka Umunna, looking for classier company.

The Labour front-bencher turns out, according to the Sun, to be "a user of he Small World site, dubbed MySpace for Millionaires". The Daily Mail, never one to miss a telling detail, reports that "the invitation-only website, which was founded by Swedish investment banker Erik Wachtmeister, currently features an article about ‘mile-high hook-ups’ on private jets. It has also been described as a hunting ground for ‘sugar daddies’."

‘Is it just me or is there a serious lack of cool places to go in central London at the weekends.
‘Most of the West End haunts seem to be full of trash and C-list wannabes, while other places that should know better opt for the cheesy vibe', Umanna wrote, adding that he had found only one venue with a “cool international crowd”.  I've said it before, and say it again: you get a better class of person in the Labour Party.
