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.

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

          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.

    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.

    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.

    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…….

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.

Rob Colvile reviews Russell Brand’s new book:

“Oddly, the person I feel sorriest for isn’t Brand himself – although he certainly comes across as a rather pitiable figure, projecting his own brokenness on to the world around him – but Johann Hari. Drummed out of Fleet Street for plagiarism, the former Independent columnist has washed up as “my mate Johann, who’s been doing research for this book”. For a genuinely talented polemicist, it would have been a humbling experience to have to treat this sub-undergraduate dross as the scintillating wisdom of a philosopher-king.”



Mycroft says:

Have you read the last bit of Animal Farm?

You know where the animals are looking through the Farmhouse window?

My TV screen was that window at lunch-time today.

Be careful, the sudden self-congratulatory tone, the slightly pudgy outline of indulgence and you become exactly what you should despise.

The jolly face of the Quisling Cameron poses for your camera has mesmerised and deceived you, you who were once not so deceived.

You were no firebrand, you were a damp squib in my opinion, sorry.

You need a damned good kick up the ahse!
