Chancellor Blinky

Can you imagine Ed Balls as Chancellor? He certainly can and if the papers are to be believed it is he who Darling reckons is briefing against him. Ed is possibly the only minister who the public, if they know him, detest even more than the Gordon Brown.

He is universally disliked by MPs, journalists, party activists and civil servants alike.

In a lot of boozers he’d be the fourth most interesting man in British politics.”
