Exposed! Chuck-it-in Chuka's shady secret: Labour MP belongs to members-only 'den' where he has his own £300 cognac locker and a bar named after him - so is this what rattled leadership contender?

A few oddities in that report.

‘Members of the Den have tended to be sporting legends, musicians and leaders of industry,’ manager Martin Williams explained last week.


So, why did Chuka's application get granted?

Former DJ Chuka has been to the M Den so often of late he has been given one of 50 coveted electronic entry keys, according to the club’s manager. This key gains entry to the club through a disguised door on the upper floor of the restaurant


That doesn't quite fit with the secrecy that the manager appeared happy to breach..

We want to be discreet and we want people to search for us. We do not advertise, it is word of mouth.

‘We love welcoming Chuka here so much that we’ve even opened a polo-themed pop-up bar here for the summer and named it Chuka.


Love it. And..

it’s so exclusive that even celebrity status does not guarantee access – MasterChef presenters Gregg Wallace and John Torode recently applied for membership but were turned down.


Where did The Mail find that out? Did he tell them? They won't be best pleased.

Well I'm starting to believe you lot. I should lead the Labour Party! I don't have (much) Chapagne in the house. I usually have a job and I joined a Trade Union once, before I went to University. When the (posh) socialist workers, or revolutionary communists came round to my student room canvassing for "votes", I could show them a Union card for a job they never had. They never had an answer for that one!

Was did you study at university?

Think carefully, your career as future leader depends on it.

I don't think schrodinger's cat jokes will go down very well in a commons debate.

I'm afraid you'll have to let the party leader pipe dream go Pinny!

How can a bottle of cognac cost 4,000 pounds? Have they compared it with one from Aldi?

cost £25, but at £50 a nip, it costs the elite £4000.

As for that kind of exclusive restaurant, there used to be loads of them in Soho, £150 for a bottle of cheap plonk you shared with your "waitress".(1970s prices)

For him to resign from the leadership contest, I was expecting them to have a lot more dirt than that.

Maybe this is just the first story.

I told the people at student parties, I was studying History. Mathematicians are not sexy! :blink:

I met a lovely lady at University, in my first week. We got on very well in a sibling way! I was always invited to her parties!

The last "party" I wanted to attend was a load of blokes discussing "solutions to the Wave Equation in cylindrical coordinates". So her parties were good in comparison, and full of chicks! ;)

We had a few beers after graduation!

Someone who feels the need to drink £4000 bottles of cognac at some louche club needs to get a grip - and probably aren't cut out to be PM, or even leader of the labour party. Its just childish showing off, banker style, buying fatuously overpriced bottles of wine when you are too pissed to appreciate it. I can't believe this is the reason he's packed it in - it is a bit twattish, but hardly leadership killing.

....with any gain comes pain......not everyone is up to recognising the pain side of it......at least he is fully aware of what he will be letting himself into....some things in life however appealing they may look are just not worth it. ;)

No need for any more stories now is there - the job has been done. He will not be the new Labour leader.

I'm sort of glad of that! It seem like a sh1t job. :blink:

interesting idea, maybe the real story is being kept in the back pocket in case he tries to mount a bid in a later election

It's their job to dig up stories!

Dirt? Membership of willy-waving clubs is widely associated with ruling classes. Especially the tin-pot kind. Now draw up a Venn Diagram between that and Champagne Socialist and it looks like an ideal fit.

Whatever dirt may be lurking, lurks still.

BTW, I saw "The Den" and wondered what angle HPC had on The Den. :huh:
