Alastair Campbell writes in his diaries that…

“Ed Balls spoke drivel, a never-ending collection of words that just ran into each other and became devoid of meaning.”

      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!

    Why is he speaking in the past tense?

    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.

    The Dodgy Hoover. says:

    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.

    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.

    He still does.

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

Dan Hodges on Team Miliband:

“‘Poisonous’, was the picture painted by one former senior advisor. ‘Dysfunctional,’ said one shadow cabinet member. ‘A bunch of medieval courtiers, not an office,’ said another. The most positive description I could get was ‘It’s a work in progress. They’re learning. Slowly. But they are learning.’”



Nick Clegg says:

Do you want lies with that?
