Tories Demand Balls Doesn’t Use Taxpayers’ Money Sorting Out His Personal Financial Problems

Matt Hancock, George Osborne’s former economic adviser, has written to Ed Balls demanding that he doesn’t use taxpayers’ money to extricate himself from his personal financial mess which has seen him end up in Court over unpaid debts related to damage done to his former constituency office premises.

Best comic line in the letter:

Ed Balls, such an omnishambles…

            Gordon and Balls fucked us all, Gideon and Dave fucked us quite nicely too by providing such a piss weak opposition and refusing to see the light or bring Mcdoom to account, indeed joining in the fantasy accounting and promises that got us into this mess.

    Matthew Hancock, Tory MP for West Suffolk, spent more than £500 on advertising and nearly £1,900 on rent.

    His total of £7,784.03 also included a claim for a sat-nav costing nearly £160 and charges for letterheads and business cards

    The Tory MP for West Suffolk, pressed on, asking what ministers intended to learn from this Swedish model. “

    Any chance of focussing on Osborne’s mortgages shenanigans, which were far more serious than some minor squabbles over a couple of hundred quid for an office. Thought not.

    From the point made in Mr Hancocks’ letter it seems Mr Balls admits to liability regarding damage to the office and fixtures and fittings, the only point that Balls offers in his defence is:”I admit I left the office in a poor state of repair, but I deny the damages amount of money my former landlord is claiming.”

    And that’s a pretty weak defence. Judge Judy would say: “Wait there, Mr Balls… you have just admitted that you damaged the office that you rented and that you broke the terms of your leasing agreement which you must have known contained a stipulation that the premises were left in a good state of repair. Bearing in mind your acknowledgement that you owe your former landlord for repairs to the structure of the office and the replacement of damaged or worn fittings, the only thing we have to do now is to work out exactly how much compensation you do owe…”

    Under the circumstances I feel Balls should at the very least stand down from the role of shadow chancellor until this case is heard.

      You talk as if the already wasted money by the last administration was not real. The AV referendum will be a waste of £91m for sure. But, in common with your much nastier Lefty comrades, you have ignored the order of scale.

      Compare the above figure with the trillion pounds of debt run up by Tony and Gordon, between 1997 and 2010, is like comparing the Mendip Hills to the Himalayas.
