Alastair Campbell writes in his diaries that…

      Ed Balls says:

      Fret not, I am flame-proof.

      I can also leap tall buildings and fly … and I will be Leader!

    The Morris Marina a nasty log laid by British Leyland says:

    “…a never-ending collection of words that just ran into each other and became devoid of meaning….”

    That could be one of the twats crappy novels or the dodgy dossier.

    Rendition, Torture & War Apologist David Miliband. says:

    It is Campbell’s fault because he gets drunk then dictates to Balls what he should write & say. Drunkeness explains why the WMD’s Dossier was Dodgy.

    Byrnsweord says:

    Probably the only sensible Alastair Campbell quote I’ve ever read.

    Rendition, Torture & War Apologist David Miliband. says:

    Dodgy Dossier

  7. 8
    Super Ted Balls says:

    A bit like the drivel in the Dodgy Dossier.

    He also revealed the Pope’s closet catholicism, Dollly Parton’s penchant for sleeping on her spine, and that Tony Blair wasn’t really a socialist.

    Pot calling the kettle black?!

    Frank, Duchess of Birkenhead says:

    Has Campbell ever read any of his own drivel?. Let he amongst you without sin cast the first stone

    Lord Bumwatch of Bumbledon says:

    Seems a nice boy! Leave him alone soup maker!

    obangobang says:

    Why is he speaking in the past tense?

  13. 15
    John Cipher says:

    Live your novels? Give the man a break, at least Balls is beginning to suspect he’s a knob.

  14. 16
    Lord Bumwatch of Bumbledon says:

    Several years ago, before he was an MP, I heard Balls address the Urban Commission. The soup maker is right -all the buzz words and read from his overhead!
    A total waste of space and driven off in a big black car with chauffeur!

    Bit slow isn’t he . The rest of the world….nay universe figured this out years ago but all that booze and pill popping fucked his brain cell up.

  16. 20
    The Ragged Trousered Philanthropist says:

    Yep booze & pills turns you into a daftee. Campbell should seek the help of professional unless he plans on profiting from his nuttiness.

    Balls + Genius*= Not

    Peter Mandelson says:

    I like the reverse: having shit put into my mouth.

  19. 23
    Ed Ball Bearings says:

    How very dare you. I have a double first in drivel. That’s why I rose to the position of propagandist in the Nazi Labour party. Campbell do not mock my drivel, it is your own drivel you should focus on. Dodgy dossier! I did not support the Iraq war! I have to think up drivel for my reasons why.

  21. 25
    Peter Mandelson says:

    You’re either in Guido or you’re behind him and in him.

    Labour Pride Forever says:

    Gordon will be PM again in a few months.

    Throbber says:

    He still does.

    If that bug-eyed loon Edward Balls is Liebour’s chosen one – will the term “Balls up”enter the parliamentary lexicon?

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
