Balls Flees Crash Scene
Police Probing Ed Balls Car Smash Dash

Ed Balls has picked up another trick from his political father Gordon Brown – going missing, Macavity style, from the scene of a crime. The Shadow Chancellor hit another car in Morley on April 5 but sped off in his Peugeot 306 without contacting the owner or leaving his insurance details. He was only caught by CCTV.

The Yorkshire Post reports that the police have launched an investigation. According to West Yorkshire Police:

We received a report on Sunday, April 6, of a fail-to-stop collision on Commercial Street, Morley, which is reported to have happened the day before on Saturday, April 5. Damage was caused to the front offside wing of a parked black Peugeot 306. Enquiries are ongoing.”

Of course this is not the first time Balls has got into trouble behind the wheel. He claims:

“As soon as I was made aware of what had happened, I took full responsibility for any damage caused.”

Not a mantra he applies to the economy, sadly.

        Al Beeb currently doing their best to denigrate the undoubted good news of these latest figures, which show a trend not just the spike Al Beeb keep referring to. They give much prominence to Ed Bollox’ bollocks about ‘flatlining’ and Milipede Junior’s ‘cost-of-living crisis’ and are emphasising the (only!) 1.4% rise in average earnings excluding bonuses, not the headline 1.7% increase. Nothing about Mad Gordo crashing our economy.

        Traitors all at Al Beeb!

          Same suit ten minutes later on Sky showed with a normal skin tone. Al Beeb clearly find a northern Tory female businesswoman an item of scorn or is it some bulldykes attempt at a jealous slap.

      Education – good, radical reforms.
      social care – being merged with healthcare, an improvement
      fire service – needs reform, too many moonlighters
      post office – the sale Labour couldn’t achieve
      environment – looks lovely and green out there
      highways – new roads
      local councils – Council Tax capped, big win
      the media – doing well but BBC needs cutting back
      energy – bills falling, Osbo’s cut taxes
      planning – Labour blocked Pickles’s reforms
      justice – big reforms to legal aid and compensation putting ambo chasers out of biz
      health – increased spending, see Labour in Wales for failure
      political process – Labour lost referendum on PR
      pensions – triple lock
      employment – record number of jobs, wages rising above inflation

      Looks good to me!

    This may be of interest.

    Section 170(2) of the Road Traffic act 1988 provides that the driver of the motor vehicle must stop and, if required to do so by any person having reasonable grounds for so requiring, give his name and address, the name and address of the owner of the vehicle and the identification marks of the vehicle. The duty to stop means to stop sufficiently long enough to exchange the particulars above: Lee v Knapp [1966] 3 All ER 961
