Labour Corby Candidate’s Balls-Up

Smiles all round in Corby as Ed Balls stepped out into the sun to support Labour candidate Andy Sawford this morning. The slightly forced expression on the shadow chancellor’s face got Guido thinking: it turns out that back in 2009 Sawford wrote a damning article for the Guardian accusing the government of presiding over a shambolic response to the infamous Baby P case. The minister in question was then Education Secretary Ed Balls.

Take the government’s botched response to the Baby P case, which has made matters worse and put more children at risk. While the government was throwing red meat to the tabloids, and contributing to the hounding of social workers, it has only served to undermine an incredibly important profession.”

All neatly forgotten today. They’ll make a politician out of him yet…

    Yet like evryone else seems to be running scared of a potentially far bigger story of criminallity here.

    The Dark Dealings of Miranda says:

    In 1999, an international investigation of child pornographers and p*edophiles run by Britain’s National Criminal Intelligence Service, codenamed Operation Ore, resulted in 7,250 suspects being identified in the United Kingdom alone. Some 1850 people were criminally charged in the case and there were 1451 convictions. Almost 500 people were interviewed “under caution” by police, meaning they were suspects. Some 900 individuals remain under investigation. In early 2003, British police began to close in on some top suspects in the Operation Ore investigation, including senior members of Blair’s government.

    However, Blair issued a D-Notice, resulting in a gag order on the press from publishing any details of the investigation. Blair cited the impending war in Iraq as a reason for the D-Notice. Police also discovered links between British Labour government p*edophile suspects and the trafficking of children for purposes of prostitution from Belgium and Portugal, including young boys from the Casa Pia orphanage in Portugal.

    Yes, Ed Balls, at times, comes across as a complete numbnuts arse breath. And it got me thinking, he is a well educated man, must have some common, so is he playing games with us, let alone those cretins better known as the media?

    I do think, as we all do, in what way what Balls is doing directed, from himself, and no doubt Yvette, at times. Politics is all confusing, but I have a good view from my fence Balls, and I think you are doing a good job of confusion, keeping your cards close to your chest, only showing Prezza and Ed what you are holding.

    A song or two for you Balls – I like you mate, I can see where you are standing, from on top of my fence, looking both ways,

    since you are a Norfolk lad, Balls, ey, I’ve done my homework, from Cymru/Wales,

    and the comfusion bit, via Leeds,

    and might as well post red rose lancs, welsh diplomatically, lancs in early 1980s

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 will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
