Balls’ Second Choice Brownite Fixer
Labour Sources: “Pretty Much a Declaration of War On Ed”

Intriguing news tonight via Paul Waugh: Balls has brought in Gary Follis to be his new Chief of Staff. Before a brief stint in the real world, Follis was SpAd to Nick Brown (Gordon’s Chief Whip and Commander of the “Forces of Hell”). As talk of the Balls’ lasagne plots spread, Guido has to wonder how Miliband feels about “Nick Brown’s boot boy” returning to the fold. It could have been worse though, one exhasperated Labour staffer coughs “it’s the job he wanted to give to Damian. It’s still pretty much a declaration of war on Ed though…”

UPDATE:

While Guido was over at PoliticsHome, laughing at that development, he noticed that the latest chapter in the Aidan Burley Nazi-gate story didn’t take very long to fall apart. Burley was accused by a teenager on Twitter of sleeping during a Holocaust lecture. It turns out that the teacher who organised the trip, on which said teenager conveniently managed to recognise Burley, is a Labour councillor:

“After the lecture, Ms Reeves confronted Dr Smith and Burley and (wrongly) assumed the doctor was a Tory aide. Ms Reeves is then alleged to have told Smith and Burley that she knew Ed Miliband…”

Playing politics on a trip to Auschwitz. Stay classy.

    Burley was playing politics by going on the trip. Doesn’t necessarily mean he didn’t do it. Not sup rising it was an active Labourite that reported it, others wouldn’t recognise him and Tories would keep quiet.

      Seems a bit opportunistic and that Ian Austin is a nasty piece of work just like Watson in the neighbouring W Bromwich constituency.

    The Labour Party is a mess. The Party and its members do not have a clear identity. They have extremely muddled ideas and no grown up policies or strategies to help move the economy or the country forward. Incoherent student politics and the usual pathetic smear campaigns is the best Labour can do at the moment. They are not even a credible opposition. A complete Ballsup!

      That is the first time I’ve seen that photo. But it is 100% consistent with the fucked-up image Brown has of himself. Everything he did while in power was to invoke the image of WWII and Churchill. His rambling speeches would oft-times begin with some kind of ‘As Churchill remarked…’ introduction.

      He was most keen (and still is) to establish himself (like Churchill) as so much more than a mere Prime Minister. A man of letters. A historian. Oh, look, here I am, Prime Minister, but look, look at me, I’m also writing a book on ‘Courage’. Yes ‘Courage’. The ‘Courage’ of men who’d been to war. A book like Churchill might have written. Courage from the First and Second World War. Like Churchill. And look. He wrote a definitive history of WWI and look at me – I wrote a book on ‘Courage’. Just like Churchill.

      Once you’d twigged what was going on in Brown’s fucked-up head it was utterly hilarious to see the Imbecile in action (and remains so), Churchill famously said ‘History will be kind to me – for I intend to write it’. And only this week we hear that Brown was insisting that his biography on the Downing Street website be re-written to make him app*ear competent and not the Viz charicature ‘Spoilt Bastard’ he actually is.

      ‘Ohh, Mummy, mummy, aren’t I clever. Oh, mummy, mummy, look at me.’

      In his mercifully brief tenure as PM he spent all his time visiting great battle sites of the world and falling over himself to insert himself into the narrative of ‘British PM meets with president Obama/President Putin/ President Sarkozy. The present day equivalent of inserting himself into photo opportunities like Churchill at Yalta.

      It really is hilarious. Once you figure it out – go back and listen to anything he says or does anywhere and you’ll see the unmistakable ‘Churchill Complex’.

      ‘Saved the world…’

      ‘Courage’.

      ‘Obama Beach..’

        I was heartened to hear an interview with Maria Miller the Tory employment minister the other day, have a go at the lazy unemployed people on benefits, and correctly identify that mostly it is their fault they do not shift themselves by accepting the first job they are offered so at least to get off the books. At last, after years of labour ministers defending these scrounging gits and paying them our money, we have a minister like Miller and also IDS who is finally willing to take these wankers by the scruff of their necks and demand they do something useful.

        It’s a good start. At least the language is better. I agree, faster action though needed. And unemployed benefit scroungers are only the beginning of it all. We have loads of services and cash that need drastically cutting.

        Take disability scroungers too in their bloody expensive wheelchairs and scooters, and fat people who just can’t be bothered!

    , The Guardian quotes glaciologist Jonathan Bamber:

    The projections for sea level rise by 2100 will not change by much, say 5 centimetres or so, so we are talking about a very small modification.
    Previous studies suggest that sea level could rise as much as 2 metres by 2100.

      WHATTT!!!!!

      Only 5cm? Five fucking cm? Two inches? In a century? The kind of rate that gets wiped off the fucking record by isostatic rebound after the melting of the ice-caps over the last 20,000 years? 20,000 years ago you could walk to fucking Calais from Dover and now we’re supposed to be worried about a 5cm change in sea level (or, for that matter, a 2m rise in sea level).

    Each and every day that goes by we need to remind ourselves of Liam Byrne’s goodbye note when he was booted out of the Treasury in May 2010 – “there’s no money left”.

    Labour’s legacy. NEVER, EVER forget what they did to Britain. “There’s no money left!”.

    “There’s no money left! – Liam Byrne MP”

      With Andrew Niels little tease on con home tommorow , I would have thought everyone would have understood Eds position a little better , some times I just despair at some of the politicans we have , fair enough presentation has had some problems , most of the ammendements were technical wording , and complaints at too much in one go . You would have thought the prospect of future tax cuts from savings would have had most medical professionals rather pleased , never mind some of the more innovative thinking .
      But before M the younger makes out internal markets are not so good , I have witnessed labours reforms on there version of the internal market , and as ever its vertiable ticket office and paperwork pass . I find it hard to believe that one of the most knowledable persons on and around internal NHS markets , is struggling because he doesnt do the media as well as some . Genius may be obstanate , and offer perfect systems , but you cannot say he doesnt understand his subject , I suspect it will be a terrible loss , his langauage is no worse than some of labours beaurcratic speak , see if the ministers appear with vexed minds , sacked for being too clever ! promotion for fitting the slipper , or licking the boot ?
      I do hope it can be resolved for all concerned , even those thinking the plotting will help them .

    with only 3 months to save the NHS , I might offer only 2 months to save M the younger , his speech on bankers in Sheffield went down well then ….. Alas you will find having a new labour labour is a rather tricky affair , useually conducted at Autum conferences , as far as I know he has to resign or wait until conference and more crowd orientated demise …….

    I dont know why they think Ed balls is in with a chance , currently biggest fairy tale teller of the past year , too tarred too trivial

    Al campbell up to his useual methods , get Adam Boulton on next time “stop telling me what to think” …… classic . I had never really thought of Al as fully paid up member of socialist cause , although Mr Hammonds recolections of speaking to shot ministers was interesting .

    I give Ms Kirsty Walk (Paul Mason on package)question of the year award in segment on jobs , so delicately put yet so profound . I was just left thinking what an utter fraud labour were all those years , Marx must have spluttered on that one .

    But while we consider the various paradises of press freedom and wonk political theories , seems as though QE is having a bit of a rub down , The guardians of pure capitalism , have had a good outing , reward success, dont bail out failures . The reason we have QE is because via ruinomics allowing 50% of the UK banking sector to fail , was not considered as bad as the alternative , inflation is rather cruel , In my view the instabilities upon the rather stupid economy labour left us with , would have been a disaster , if pure capitalism had been followed on such losses in Banks , imagine the effect on the city with 50% of its intertrades gone ……. and Dave making his keynote speech on not taxing bicycle wheels , so everyone can have a homemade handcart . QE isnt ideal , but at least dont forget the alternate reality of what 50% of the banking sector going would have meant .

    I am not sure wether Syria have made Lavrov look a fool or Lavrov has made himself one , when Libya chucks out Syrias ambassador , at least shows some understanding of changing from dictatorship . So much for that re set button , must have misunderstood it as time warp button .And so ended the great post Yeltsin , we do good international diplomacy, era
