Balls Out in 2015

A name to remember for the run-up to a big 2015 dogfight: the Tories have selected Andrea Jenkyns to take on Ed Balls in Morley and Outwood. The seat was almost the scene of the biggest upset of 2010. Expect Jenkyns’ working class striver credentials to be pushed from now until election day, Jenkyns is a local, comp-educated candidate who runs her own business. Conveniently she says fixing the broken welfare system is her main priority. Balls has a majority of 1,101…

    Doubt they’ll get a swing big enough to do it, but if any Labour MP should be worried about their seat it’s Balls!

    The Right Honourable George Osborne Mp says:

    I think we’ve got a very clear message, a loud and clear message that Britain cannot let up in dealing with its debts, dealing with its problems, cannot let up in making sure that Britain can pay its way in the world.

    Balls and milliband are completely on the wrong side of the welfare debate and their catastrophic miss reading of the public mood is going to lead to a poorer showing in the local elections than they expect but they will win in2015 and the IMF will impose huge cuts in public spending oct 2015 .
    I am afraid balls will survive in may

    Good riddance to this house-flipping man who bullies colleagues and made hundreds of thousands of people out of work thanks to his reckless spending and debt crisis

    Where do we donate?

    I don’t mind backing a Tory – if the target for removal is Ed Balls.

    Mind you wouldn’t UKIP stand a better chance of ousting the b*stard?

    Even if Balls loses, Labour will only move up some old duffer of an MP up the Lords and parachute Balls into his seat.

    I do hope he gets voted out. He invites the most dreadful people round for supper. Ed, Ken, Len, Bob and Chukka. Simply too awful for words they it around droning on and on about how it’s going to be on Number 10. And little Owen, he does my washing up. I can’t wait till he’s old enough for me to have his cherry!

    Breaking news says:

    Are N Korea genuinely seeking a global conflict or is this just sabre rattling?

    The Foreign Office says it has been warned by North Korea that the safety of British diplomats cannot be guaranteed after 10 April in the event of conflict.

    Wonderful though the thought is, there’s no chance of Balls losing his seat in 2015.

    Oh yes, Chris Huhne.

  47. 47
    yeah, right... says:

    Doubt it; Ed will be only too pleased to see the back of Gordon Jr. Has Balls is too disliked among the PLP to cause meaningful trouble on the back benches.

    Thomas Cook says:

    Good time for a ‘jolly’ for Bliar, Brown, Two Balls, Two Jags, Millipede x 2, etc. This unique trip to N Korea will be generously funded by the populace at large and will allow the aforesaid politicians to reap the rewards due to them. The trip will start on 11th April.

    The thought of his seat losing its Balls is more attractive.

    Khoklovskairvlin says:

    If the swing against Balls had been the same as in adjacent seats, such as his wife’s, he would have lost.

    Balls is a scumbag but also looks safe.

    Jenkyns is pissing in the wind if she thinks she could win this.

    Balls will have a majority of around 7K at the next GE.

    But look how the Right treat Harrison with humour and wit. If a Tory MP had done the same the BBC would have run with it 24/7 with a procession of Lefty MPs in their studio screaming and wailing at how disgraceful this was and the MP should be sacked immediately.

    When Dave came out with his ludicrous suggestion that North Korea is a current nuclear threat to the British Isles, I was put in mind of Tony Blair and his equally ludicrous claim that we were 45 minutes from being attacked by Iraq with WMD’s. An insult to our intelligence, scaremongering, contemptible.

    I hope Adrea (if she is media savvy) reads this.

    It’s simple. For the next two years concentrate on the POSTAL VOTES. Get the good people of Morley to commit to you on the postal votes and do nothing else.

    That’s how our friend from Normanton won last time.
