Balls Threatens to Throw Toys Out of Labour Pram

ballsEd Balls was never going to stay silent on the growing speculation about a humiliating sacking at the hands ruthless Ed Miliband. Dangerous subversive chatter over the Shadow Chancellor’s future has goaded the Balls spin machine into lashing out. As ever Kevin Maguire was the grateful recipient of the poison:

“Allies of the shadow chancellor whisper that he’d take his bat and balls away and retire to the back benches rather than swallow demotion to another portfolio.”

A pretty unsubtle threat from Ed. Read: Balls is not going to go quietly.

      I agree, anybody thinking of voting labour will take one look at the 2 geniuses called Ed and vote for anybody but them !

        Even Gordon was not mad enough to make Balls chancellor, which reveals Miliband as weak/stupid or more crazy than Brown

          Take it like I meant it says:

          Every time Balls opens his mouth, it’s clear he would make a first class prime minister, should the Isle of Dogs ever seek full independence.

        What sane person would possibly contemplate this inept clown running the British Economy? Come a general election he will be a massive vote loser for Labour.
        So lets hope that Millipede keeps him.

        Not only that, he also provides great entertainment value. The parliamentarian who it is easiest to laugh at. So let’s hope Millipede keeps him.

        Actually I feel sorry for him. Imagine what it must be like being married to Yvette.

    Maybe Red Ed will replace him with brother Dave who, according to the Telegraph, is looking to return to front-line politics.

    Milliband could really rub it in if he sacked Mr Balls and replaced him with Mrs Balls.

    He’d probably have to sack her before the election and put someone slightly more grown up in the role. But hell, it would be funny sowing that strife in to the Balls household.

    David Milliband says:

    Ed you know me taking your job is the right thing for the country.
    Look no hard feelings eh, have a banana.

    If @Ed_Miliband does sack @EdBallsMP and he goes to the back bench as he has threatened, Conservative MPs will play “spot the Balls contest” at PMQs

    Check Facts First says:

    He`ll do what his misses tells him to do. After all little Yvette wants a job in cabinet and Mr Balls falling out big time with Ed isn`t going to help is it. Be a bit of a laugh though with Ed and David sitting next to each other with David constantly out performing Ed. Maybe David will get to lead the party after all. The Tories are having a good start to 2013, now it is Labour`s turn to be on the back foot.

      It turns out that Yvette is a jock she was born in Inverness

      Cooper's chance is only if Miliband loses in 2015 says:

      Yvette will be too old for leader by 2025…as Ed Miliband will want to serve two terms as PM or at very least stand down in 2023. He wouldn’t want o be a one term PM like Cameron

      • 53
        Solly says:

        “Ed Miliband will want to serve two terms as PM”

        Hahahaha! I want to win the lottery this evening. Fuck all chance of it happening.

    Balls to go to backbenches..is THAT a promise says:

    Problem for Miliband Junior is that I can’t see older brother David as an ex-Foreign Secretary accepting anything less than Shadow Chancellor….anything else would smack too much of a humiliation after already losing the leadership to “Little Bro”

    The other problem is that if Balls carried through with his threat he would be a focus for trouble on the backbenches as he still actually thinks he is potential leadership material…….

      He may be tempted by some “big” party role such as 2015 Election Campaign Supremo with beefed up Shadow Cabinet & Party position covering several key areas such as Economy; Business; Welfare etc…all key areas in 2015

      Please Yvette, can you explain what a strivers tax is. The nearest explanation I can come up with is employers NI contribs.

      Raving Loon says:

      Removing benefits is not a tax, you numbskull. Their is no “right” to someone else’s money, so removing what was never yours in the first place is not a tax. And what is the point in taxing someone, only to give it back to them in benefits?

      • 58
        V1le Labour ruined my Country says:

        This is not a benefit it is welfare, the whole Country became addicted to welfare as part of the Labour domination plan.

    I don’t know what the British public have done wrong to deserve such a bunch of half sharp bunch of Politicians from all three parties. We the public need to vote each and every one of them out by voting for anyone other than this bunch of mediocre expense grabbers, no one could be worse so there is nothing to lose.
    All of the main Parties have been responsible for this Country being over run by immigrants (cannot blame them,after all Britain is the only Country that works against it’s own citizens in immigrants favour and giving them benefit utopia) Most of our Politicians have committed treason and one day will be brought to justice for doing so.

      Labour removed the crime of treason from the statute books (a certain Mr Straw), but in no way does that imply the possibility of any body being held culpable somewhere down the line. -:)

    I was very close to Gordon Brown
    And that’s guaranteed to let me down

    My majority hangs by a thread
    The whole party wants me dead
    And I’ll shoot you in the back
    Unless you’re a grovelling Hack

    But the truth is worse than that
    Despite being an odious tw@t
    It’s simply far from super
    Ed Milliband loves Yvette Cooper

    Pah Ed Miliband thinks Balls is da shizzle. They both deserve to drown together at the next election.

    With a little bit of luck the fat blinky fucker will lose his seat and end up on the dole too. Only a 1100 majority remember…

    Ed Balls hasn’t got a “bat and ball” to take away, it’s a silly metaphor given that Ed Millithing is in charge.

    You’d better watch out, you’d better not cry. You’d better not pout, I’m telling you why … no one gives a shit

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
