Sweaty Balls and Other Tales

The updated register of Members of Interests provided rich pickings for this week’s Daily Star Sunday column. Chris Huhne is cashing in on his Energy contacts, Nadine’s taking Ashcroft money and Labour have their very own absent earners. Guido’s favourite story of the week was the coming nightmare for Ed Balls:

THE Tories have finally accepted that their cherished plan to redraw parliamentary boundaries, heavily favouring Labour at the moment, is dead in the water. They’ve begun to select candidates for the next election in the old seats. Ed Balls’ patch near Leeds is high up the target list. The Tories were just 1,101 votes short of scalping their nemesis last time round, fewer votes than the UKIP candidate got. If the Tories choose a suitably Eurosceptic candidate and UKIP sits this one out, Balls will have one hell of a fight on his hands.
