Omnisham-balls: Ed Balls Fluffs Autumn Statement

A full house of criticism for Ed Balls dire response to the Autumn Statement. He fluffed his first line and it was all downhill from there…

He had an open goal, all he had to do was keep it simple…


  1. 1
    WVM says:

    A total omnishambles from Balls!

  2. 2
    Kebab Time says:

    It was shocking!

  3. 3
    Blinky has to make a formal apology says:

  4. 4
    Steve Miliband says:

    Time for Ed to call for an enquiry

  5. 5
    Dennis McShane's Shed says:

    Woeful – sounded like he was pissed. Normally he spouts shit in a vaguely competent manner but not today.

    Bye bye Ed.

  6. 6
    8illy 8owden, the world's greatist umplre says:

    BBC Sports Personality of the Year: Stephen Maguire.

    Watch the video – amazing honesty.

  7. 7
    Schnorbitz - the greatest Labour leader since Michael Foot! says:

    Too far too fast… er, no, er… not fast enough… er… Millie Dowler, Millie Dowler, Millie Dowler…

  8. 8
    Moussa Koussa Mark 3 says:

    LOL….Gideon has just told us all that the economy is more fu*cked that he thought, yet your are more concerned with Ed Balls performance…LOL

  9. 9
    Call me Dave says:

    You are as much a hune as blinkey

  10. 10
    Steve Miliband says:

    Was expecting deficit to be rising, therefore change of script

  11. 11
    Check Facts First says:

    Anyone see the look on Ed`s wife`s face? If looks could kill! It was terrible. The two Eds had a really bad day today. Ed M at PMQs and Ed B in response to the Autumn Statement.

    Favourite moment from today's PMQs says:

  13. 13
    Mike Hunt says:

    What a total Cunt!

  14. 14
    Steve Miliband says:

    Just curious about labour’s plan

  15. 15
    Geoff Hoon says:

    I remember the days when you could write Hunt and my name would come up. Boo-hoo.

  16. 16
    DaveyC says:

    Agreed. Balls making a dick of himself always enjoyable, but the real story here is Gideon’s complete failure to get the economy sorted. He should be resigning, not jeering the opposition.

  17. 17

    Because ….. Balls should have had a good ride on the back of the economic figures.

    Instead, he had a car crash!

    And I should know.

  18. 18
    Blinkey B'tard says:

    Has he been using bath salts? They lead to paranoia.

  19. 19
    Stephanie Flanders says:

    She is a bitch

  20. 20
    I don't nee d no doctor says:

    It seems that the tweets from the media are trying to stick up for Balls. Just shows the bias from the left wing media, especially Kathy Newman of channel 4. No wonder she wears Red so often.

  21. 21
    Flanders and Eds says:

    His ex girlfiend Steph is on the BBC now trying to help him out.

  22. 22
    Nom Dom Nom 2 says:

    Not really, just 2 sides of the same worthless coin

  23. 23
    Yvette Cooper says:

    I’ll have you know I am one of the most sincere bitches in politics.

  24. 24
    George Gideon Oliver Osborne says:

    I am predicting that the sale of Royal baby memorabilia will turn around the economy.

  25. 25
    Power Crazed Balls says:

    I am so hyped up Guido

    That I score own goals without knowing why

    Do you think I should change my dope?

    Should I ask Baldwin which white stuff to take?

  26. 26
    Kent Walton says:

    Good afternoon grappling fans. Blinky v Gideon. Hardly battle of the titans. Just a submission or a death from boredom to decide the winner in this exchange.

  27. 27
    Tax is theft says:

    Nice of D. Miliband to slum it in the HoC.

  28. 28
    Moussa Koussa Mark 3 says:

    Tittering on a TRIPLE DIP !!!!

    Keep on obsessing about Balls… shows how daft you really are.

  29. 29
    Who Want's Some?! says:

    Jesus, this lot play at a 6th form debating society while the country goes on the slide into an ominishitpit! They must have buggered the brains out of each other judging by this performance. Expect no solutions here I’m afraid, soon be time to dig up the cached arms and comms equipment and live off the land!

  30. 30
    WVM says:

    Yes I was very shocked to say the least, my new F5 key is obviously working well.
    Maybe it’s time for a upgrade 8illy?

  31. 31
    Feeling better now? says:

    Hoon. What a hoon?

  32. 32
    I don't nee d no doctor says:

    Balls was absolutely dire. How and why does he keep his job.

  33. 33

    Don’t people know about Ed Ball’s ingrowing eyelash to anus problem?
    That is why he blinks so much you heartless bastards.

  34. 34

    Fecking part time Blairite bastard.

    Well said, give that man a cigar.

  42. 42
    Engineer says:

    I think it may be slowly dawning on Balls that he’s got it all fundamentally wrong.

  43. 43
    Tom Watson says:

    Having been part of the Mcbride mafia, he knows where the bodies are buried.

  44. 44

  51. 51

    Its not an obsession, its reality. Balls and Miliband do more damage to the country every time they open their gobs.

    Ever the professional.

  58. 58
    Fracking Marvelous says:

    Good to see that george is pressing ahead with shale gas.

    Frackining is what turned around the US econonomy by turning it from an importer of energy to an exporter. It will be good for our economy too but I fear that these massive benefits will not be seen until after the next election. The new government should have hit the ground running and promoted fracking as soon as it was elected, probably those pesky Liberals were the fly in the ointment.

    Another point worth considering that Fracking in the US is not a Federal operation and is privately controlled and unfortunately George is setting up a new government quango to oversee it in the UK.

  59. 59
    Engineer says:

    Two years to sort out an economic omnishambles that was several decades in the making? Sorting this out will take a decade, and full recovery about two generations; that’s provided we don’t go back to Labour’s usual tax, borrow and spend ways.

    The thing about Balls is, he would make exactly the same criticism of the Government whether the debt was rising or falling, which perhaps explains his confusion.

  68. 68

    Skinner should retire and let a younger person have his job. Its not about the money, is it Skinner?

    Dame Joan Ruddock queries investment in green energy and wants the UK to meet the 2030 de-carbonisation target.
    I wonder if those living in Lewisham and Deptford agree that this is the biggest problem facing them and whether it is worth wasting an opportunity to question the chancellor regarding the Nation’s finances.

    I want you to know that we at the Harvard Faculty have recently told Milliband and Balls to come to their senses

    We cannot have our reputation destroyed by “Plan B’ers B for B a n k r u p t” as Cameron so rightly said

    We reminded Ed Milliband that he taught here for e few months and that he must not tarnish our reputation

    I just said he was stupid, but in a roundabout way.

    Johnny Ball says:

    The real madness is that we could reduce our carbon emmissions by 75% almost overnight if we used gas to generate our leccy. On the other hand windmills only produce 2% of our energy (when the wind is blowing) and it has cost a fortune and decades to achieve this.

    Interesting to listen to Johnny Ball explaining all this on Sky News, I suppose he is on the BBC Black list these days. Even coal genheration is 3 x more efficient than it was just a decade ago, nowt to do with carbon capture and all to do with turbine technolgy. He also pointed out that wind turbine blades do not spin fast enough to escape the effects of gravity which makes them very prone to mechanical failure.
