Whether Michael Crick has "outed" Chuka Umuna on Channel 4 News

On Channel 4 News earlier this evening Michael Crick reported on Chuka Umuna in Swindon.

And in a very pointed reference said he was the wearer of large "swish" watches.

Not Swiss watches, but "swish" watches.

"Swish" is a word which has two meanings.

An innocuous British meaning and a very different American meaning.

It reminded me of when the slimy Matthew Parris "outed" Peter Mandelson on Newsnight in 1998.

Which made me wonder whether Michael Crick has "outed" Chuka Umuna on Channel 4 News.

And if he has, does this mean that Michael Crick is playing some kind of covert role in the Labour leadership contest?
