Balls’s Bungled Pledge

Yesterday Ed Balls made a big song and dance about signing a pledge that all interns should be paid the minimum wage. He even released a video of him and one of his own office interns discussing it. Except that’s not quite what he said:

“It’s really important if you are interning or volunteering in a House of Commons office that you get properly paid.”

Interns and volunteers.

So what about his very own voluptuous volunteer Ellie “Stilettos” Gellard, Twitter queen and cursed backer of Gordon? Gellard has been strutting around with a pass, on the Balls campaign, yet apparently isn’t taking a penny?

A volunteer you might say… So it’s fine that all interns and volunteers must be paid, just not Ed’s campaign staff. Or if she is being paid, why hasn’t it been declared?

    She doesn’t need to be paid, she’s a rich Daddy’s Girl rah. She’d wipe her arse with a £20 note, although ironically Balls would probably pay to see that

    Well, it looks more and more likely that one of the Labour’s ‘Chuckle Bros’ will become the next Great Dear Leader of the “Newer Numpity Marxist-Leninist Labour Party of Great Britain.

    Ed Balls(up) looks like he may be faded out into the background. Too much baggage attachments with the Auld Yin, Gordy McRuin!!

    Citizens will rejoice in the streets at my victory in the coming general election, vis-a-vis the modernisation of britain, the labour track record being ipso facto one to be proud of in the international arena combating racism and improving the UK through immigration and anti-intolerance legislation.

    Citizens will welcome me into their cities as I embark on a nationwide tour to promote our vision for a modernised Britain at the heart of Europe, Keynesian policies ensuring that every person has their human right to a job and everybody including undocumented citizens from abroad get their human right of free NHS care.

    Ed Balls and Ellie Gellard a couple of troughing, publicity seeking hoons. Ofcourse the troughing silly little girl is getting paid. You don’t think she is sucking Ballsy dick for nothing do you. Every whore has her price. Enjoy it while it last Ellie doll. Balls the little dick is out in his arse soon.

    Of course she is getting paid every hΦΦre has her price. Do you expect Ms Gellard to suck Ballsy dyk for nothing?
    Enjoy it while it lasts Ellie doll. Ed Balls will be out on his ear in the next week or two.
    What dim biint could think Balls would ever be a good leader. Poor Ellie, looks like you are going to have to find someone else to latch onto to satisfy your insatiable craving for publicity.

    They are correct in that if the referendum if held on May 5th it will give an unbalanced result. The Scots and Welsh are more likely to vote as they will be voting anyway that day to choose their own Governments (their vote on May 6th was to decide who should govern England as unlike them, we aren’t allowed to decide for ourselves) The referendum should be moved to another day so everyone across the UK who wants to vote for AV will have to go out specially and some ‘won’t be there anyway’. This would be fairer. Nuliebore will scupper it anyway (hopefully) even though they were willing to force it through without a referendum to get into bed with the Lib Dems – hypocrites that they are. By the way does anyone know if non-English MPs were allowed to vote on the Acadamies bill which affects England only?

    I thought that one purchased keys from Eaton, and went to Eton to learn how to rule the UK effortlessly and of right.

    Wavie Davie - vote for no change says:

    Dopey Tory die-hards on here trying desperately to convince us that their glorious leader’s sucking up to Turkey yesterday is some fiendishly clever plan to break up the EU.

    Surely Guido is being distracted by Ellie’s looks and the (disturbing) thought that she might be getting her wabs out for Blinky. The real question is: “how is Sally Bercow being paid for her help on the campaign?”. Wine and cock, I should imagine.

    Nah, he ticks two of the three key boxes: homosexual and lefty, so he’s pretty safe. Convert to Islam and he’d be fireproof.

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured.

They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
