Punters Slash Odds, Ed Balls Now Expected to Lose

Right now on Betfair the odds on the Morley and Outwood seat being fought over by Ed Balls (2/5) and Antony Calvert (2/7) slighly favouring the Tory challenger.  Guido understands that Balls is cynically trying to shore up his vote in working class areas of the constituency by taking a knuckle draggingly tough line on immigration in leaflets going through letter boxes.

Antony Calvert has raised thousands online from grassroots Conservatives hoping to defeat the UNITE union backed and widely disliked protege of Gordon Brown.  Many of those hoping for Balls to provide a “Portillo moment” on election night are Labour MPs…

UPDATE : According to, Calvert has raised over £6,000 online in the last 7 days with the average donation just over £30.  The odds have moved even further in against Balls today, he is now 6/4 versus Calvert at 1/2.  Guido did manage to get a few quid on early…

        So the international socialists are adopting the rhetoric and policies of their “hated enemies” the national socialists for political expediency. What utterly cynical manipulation, these people are vermin, without a single principle in their bodies. Power at all costs, power by any means necessary.

            Nothing against OH but is this not just another form of troughing off of someone else?

            Open or not is it not a serious question that any PPC wanting to have the benefit of a privileged job of being a Member of Parliament should at least pay their own deposit and election expenses? Why do PPC’s seek funding from anyone else, this is why parties are dependent on the unions and big business.

          • Disaffected says:

            Today McSlug was corrected by the statistics office because he did not provide accurate immigration figures- well that’s a surprise from a party who wanted to change the face of Britain by mass immigration- Brown won’t let you down. I wonder if he and Darling took the immigration figures into account when spinning the budget figures or the amount to be spent on public services? McSlug also forgot to mention he wants Turkey to join Europe so the limited UK taxpayers can feed a few thousand more on the welfare state. He only wanted to talk about non-EU immigration. How about EU immigration and asylum figures on top of the ones he produced? In 2005 anyone who dared to challenge Liebour were tagged a racist, now McSlug wants a sensible debate limiting, I suggest, the evidence that could be thrown at him. Straw, Blair and Blunkett also instigated mass immigration. Bring back Andy Neather who first let it be known what they were up to and how they were going to spin it to the public. No wonder he does not want his opponents to use evidence agianst him. Liebour wanted to change the face of Britain for their own political ends, not to serve the interests of the country. British jobs for British workers- try telling that to the mass unemployed and how you put them out of work McSlug. Brown won’t let you down.

            Trust Brown’s judgment: Brown robbed everyone’s pension in 1997 and is now wondering what should be done to finance people in their old age- Brown won’t let you down. Brown sold our gold when it was at its lowest price costing the UK £7 billion pounds- Brown won’t let you down. Brown wanted to change the face of Britain by mass immigration- he now understands the cost to the UK- Brown won’t let you down. Brown improperly financed the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, thousands of people lost their lives because Brown did not provide enough money. Brown’s denied this in complete contrast to the evidence of military chiefs. He then realised he did not fund the wars properly and wrote to confirm he was wrong- Brown won’t let you down. Brown is the one who was given a good economy and now it is bankrupt- Brown won’t let you down. Brown still claims for a second home that he does not have, brown won’t let you down. Brown recently told the country- I won’t let you down. He cannot be trusted. Brown has let you down for 13 years, it is time for change, vote him out.

          • It's just a game says:

            Balls is up against the BNP. Morley has the only BNP councillor elected to Leeds City Council. (And whilst we’re on the subject of Leeds City Council, is there a fag paper of a difference between lefty Andrew Carter’s policies and the Labour lot that preceded him? I think not.) Everyone is missing the point – it doesn’t matter whether Labour or Tory wins Morley and Outwood – the UK will get the same Fabian/Marxist/pro-EU policies for another five years.

        Quite so, but the *government* won’t be required to have won their seats, or indeed, any seats. The “continuity” plans over-ride piddling little things like elections to ensure that the people running the country remain the same.

        It’s the right thing to do.

          The fact that Dave is a distant relative of the Queen will be a massive disadvantage to them if there is a hung Parliament. The Monarchy being hellbent on self preservation will do anything to avoid being partisan towards Dave. in short they will overcompensate by allowing brown anything he asks for. The alternative is Labour will turn on the Monarchy and accuse it for standing up for its blood kin. i appreciate he is a fifth cousin twice removed, but it is a degree of relationship which is documented and in the public domain.

          The only way to forestall this problem is for all parties to immediately demand that the Cabinet Office, The Palace and NO10 immediately publish the guidelines they will be operating under!

          • Mitch says:

            The Queen will behave perfectly, as always. She will not be involved in any controversy. Cameron is the leader of one of the major parties. He will get his chance if he deserves it, relative or not.

            Sir, I was going to call you out, for having referred to our Dear Queen in a most un-becoming way. However, from the rest of your post, I think that, given a little education from someone like me, in more courtierly ways, you could be an asset: anyone who thinks that popping a few bullets in some Labour M.P.s’ heads is a good idea, is, by definition, a good bloke.

      • 94
        Mr Ned says:

        OK according to the newspapers:

        According to (conveniently) newly “discovered” laws, Minister’s of state could remain ministers of state in a coalition Government IF a hung Parliament fails to create a new Government.

        So, IF the tories win most seats in a hung Parliament, but do not give in to all the SNP’s Lib-Dem’s, Plied Cumry’s socialist and corporatist demands, then they will all refuse to form a Government with Cameron. If this situation is not remedied in a few weeks, then Brown’s old cabinet stays in power (even if The Ministers in it have lost their seats in the election) for the good of the nation and the economy and to support the value of the pound.

        This, of course, ignores the fact that Brown’s government has seen the pound devalued by 30% already.

        The laws also are there to prevent the Queen from shutting Parliament and calling a fresh election.

        This also allows for the civil-contingencies act to be enacted as an extra measure if Gordon Brown believes it to be required too.

        This is NOT a charter for the stabilisation of Government. It is a fascist dictator’s charter. This is leading us down into a totalitarian dictatorship akin to a banana republic.

        Anyone for Civil War???

The senior Civil service is no longer impartial and will not insist on fairplay. Daves kinship to the Queen will count against him. The whole situation is a nightmare!

          • This country doesn’t work that way

            Ever opened a history book? Yes, it does work that way. We’ve been in a brief coupla hundred years of stability, more or less. But this is a volatile place. We fight vicious bloody wars over issue of principle, succession, detailed treaty. We’re not pissy pushovers, we’re not dull drones, we’re not sodding SHEEP.

            This is the England of Cromwell, Kipling, Churchill and Orwell, not Blinky fucking Balls and Dale Winton. Brown is seriously misjudging this country – Dave too. All those bastards are pushing their luck.

            As far as I know, the Queen will ask the party with the largest number of seats to try to form a Government. If they don’t manage to stitch up a deal, she’ll then be obliged to ask the next largest party to see if they can form a Government. But I honestly don’t think it’s going to come to that, unless the Tories screw up magnificently during the campaign.

      What larks,Pip ! What larks ! says:

      As a Minister Balls would indeed still be a Minister whether he was elected or not. Ministers and Prime Ministers are servants of the Crown and can continue in office(as would the Labour Government) until dismissed by HMQ or if the Prime Minister hands in his seals of office to the Queen.It is tradition in modern times that firstly the Prime Minister must be a member of the commons(not Lords) and that they should command a majority in The House with or without support from other parties and only if defeated on their Queens Speech which is effectively a Vote of Confidence must they resign and the Queen would then send for the leader of the opposition and offer him an opportunity to try and form an administration.If he failed the Queen would then endeavour to get all parties to form a coalition interim government for a set time limit say 12 months max and then grant another dissolution. She would not immediately grant a Dissolution should parties be unable to agree amongst themselves but would detrmine it not in the national interest to do so and would command that they endeavour to try again for consensus.If they could not obtain a consensus then SHE would grant a Dissolution but in that event….God help us all

        Yup, we’re having this dumped on you….

        Main article: Enabling Act (Nazi Germany)

        In the United Kingdom
        Although there was never an enabling act in the United Kingdom resembling the one in Nazi Germany, the idea of an enabling act has been advocated by prominent British politicians.

        In the 1930s, both Sir Stafford Cripps and Clement Attlee advocated an enabling act to allow a future Labour government to pass socialist legislation which would not be amended by normal parliamentary procedures and the House of Lords. According to Cripps, his “Planning and Enabling Act” would not be able to be repealed, and the orders made by the government using the act would not be allowed discussion in Parliament.[1] Cripps also suggested measures against the monarchy, but quickly dropped the idea.[2]

          Bagehot's grandad says:

          One parliament does not bind another.

          ‘Enabling’ legislation may be invoked to ease the passage of laws through parliament, but should it seek to perpetuate itself by the repeal of the Parliament Acts re. Elections, then it’s into civil war country.

          Parliament was effectively born out of civil war and the assumption by ‘force majeure’ of the royal prerogative (sovereignty in the English and Welsh case, with the later addition of Scotland and eventually Ireland to the settlement).

Most of the non payers were Labour voters who as usual wanted something for nothing! If the Conservatives had had any guts they would have toughed it out instead they sacked their leader. Country has been crap ever since!!

          • Snotrocket says:

            Yes, 115, the Poll Tax was very popular amongst those who would actually pay. But labour and the SWP managed to mobilise the great unwashed and the uninfomed. But, and this is worse, Maggie was being advised by the toe-rag Hesseltine – who later stabbed her in the back – and he persuaded her to let him change things to Council Tax. And there, for those who need the fucking history lesson, was born the 17.5% VAT: the extra 2.5% was the sop to buy off the supporters of the PT.
            All that was ever worng, if I may continue the history lesson, was that a great idea was screwed up, mainly by civil servants with an axe to grind, during implementation. That was a cock-up.
            Fortunately, Hezza never profited from his back-stabbing.

          It was not a lie, I have always told the truth and will not let you down. Immigration is at an all time low and the statistics prove conclusively that there has been a 0% rise since we came to power.

          We are resolute in defense of our borders, why sometimes we deport the same person 3 or 4 times. Who else would do that? Certainly not the do nothing Tories, that`s for sure.

        Total Fabrication and Lies says:

        Brown’s statement “Controlled Immigration for a fairer Britain” needs to be scrutinised. It is valueless and without any effect on the REAL immigration problem and pressure created on jobs,housing,health services and education.

        It is not a matter of controlling the number of Bangladeshi Balti chefs,The REAL problem is the massive influx into the UK from the new accession states of the EU…principally Poland;Rumania;Lthuania etc. These quotas cannot be controlled under the EU free movement laws within its boundaries. The majority of EU states with the exception of UK arranged transistional arrangemnts on immigration into its country from the eastern european states on the date they acceded to the EU.For whatever reason Labour did not(ignoring the allegations regarding Labour wishing to swap the UK for party political purposes with immigrants)

        The fact is that Brown can pontificate as much as he likes and trumpet on about controlling immigration.He can’t control what the real problem is and effectively he is once again taking the electorate for fools.His promises/policies are worthless

Whilst there has been a massive influx from Eastern Europe. Most of these people are at least prepared to work. I doubt you could say the same for many of the former “refugees” who now have free right of movement and have set up shop in Britain thanks to the insane welfare policies. Oh and they are also able to take advantage of the EU family member visa like this chap….

      Most of the population under 35 have no idea of British history other than they believe that Thatcher was akin to Hitler or where palaces like Mozambique are in relation to the UK. We have bred a generation of thick;pleasure seeking;irresponsible morons. Do you honestly think that they will even comprehend or actually dissect Brown’s claims especially when the media such as Sky and BBC are feeding them a drip drip of lies and obfustications ?

Pretty soon we shall all have to change the DABs we’ve already bought. Why can’t the government just butt out of these sorts of schemes and allow the market to figure it out? Rather like Blue Ray is being determined.

        Let’s face it, governments, especially this one, always manage to cock-up IT programs. Then again, perhaps they have ulterior motives for moving from FM…
