The Balls Offensive

With Ed Balls dissing Douglas Alexander on LBC last night, this morning his wife Yvette Cooper has launched another broadside against the embattled election coordinator. As Guido reported earlier in the week, Alexander is under attack internally from the likes of Michael Dugher for not “taking the fight to UKIP”, and today that row has spilled over to the pages of the Mirror:

“Like their plans for NHS charges or millionaire tax cuts, UKIP’s Thatcherite policies are worse than David Cameron’s. Pulling out of Europe won’t help. That risks jobs. Better to get EU reforms – including better controls when countries join.

We mustn’t ignore UKIP … nor must we imitate them – we are challenging all the other parties because they have no answers to help working people.”

Finally it appears at least one faction in Labour has noticed the party ahead of them in the EU polling rather than being obsessed by the one languishing in last place. Looks a lot like a coordinated Balls camp shift…


  1. 1
    Prime Minister David Cameron says:

    Leave Gary Barlow alone!

    Whatever he said, whatever he did, he didn’t mean it.

  2. 2
    Gideon Osborne says:

    I want his taxes back for good.

  3. 3

    Isn’t the job of HM Opposition to oppose the Government versus attacking themselves internally? I’m prepared to admit I might have misunderstood.

    Cool Dude says:

    Labpour fight for working class people
    I have one question to the tories. Why do you hate the working class?
    We cut taxes for the poor and increase them on the rich.

    Ivor Biggun says:

    “Better to get EU reforms” Oh, do fuck off. Denial is what got us into the EU mess.

  7. 7
    Winston says:

    Labour don’t need to attack UKIP directly, they get their friends at the BBC, C4, the Guardian, The Independent and The Mirror to do it for them. Likewise, the Tories have been using their buddies at the Telegraph, The Times, The Mail, Sky and, at times, Guido.

  13. 13
    NBeale says:

    “I don’t think Labour will win the next election as an anti-business party” says Ed B.
    But under Ed M’s leadership Labour is an anti-business party.
    Hence Ed B doesn’t think Labour will win the next election under Ed M’s leadership.

    He’s probably right – but quite brave to say so!

  14. 14
    Labour are cunts says:

    Please tell me you’re just doing a parody of a leftie moron. Labour fight for the working class? Labour who:

    Gave a knighthood to Fred Goodwin for services to banking

    Sold honours for cash

    Raised pensions by 75p a week

    Said they were “perfectly relaxed about people becoming filthy rich”

    Cut taxes on the rich for 13 years except the last 4 weeks before the 2010 election

    Gave billion pound PFI contracts to their cronies which resulted in hospitals being in debt for the next 30 years and being charged £350 to have a lightbulb changed

    Left poor and elderly people to die in their own urine and faeces at Mid Staffs

    Abolished the 10p tax rate

    Reduced the number of energy companies, causing people’s bills to rise

    That Labour you mean?

  15. 15
    Grant Shapps says:

    Us Tories have always known how to spin a good lie for propaganda purposes.

    Ockham's Razor says:

    Balls plays a massive part in ra’pe.

    I can think of three ways to interpret that already. Counting…

  17. 17
    Gerhard says:

    Are Labour capable of going more than a couple of sentences without referring to ‘ordinary working people’, ‘the most vulnerable in society’ or some sort of other meaningless and condescending tag?

    It’s like some sort of terrible bingo game when they get to sit next to Weird Ed at the Christmas party if they’ve said the key phrases more than anyone else.

    The sad thing is that there are some soft twats who listen to these catchphrases and think “yes: there’s someone who’s trying to help me”. Bollocks are they.

    We had 13 years of Liebours answers to the working people, it was a two fingered salute, they taxed, they stole pensions, they did everything they could to destroy working people , even to uncontrolled immigration, making wages drop like a stone while bills rose sky high and taxes higher, 10% to 20% tax on low wage workers, zero contracts, time Liebour and it’s gang of nasties was sent to where it belongs, in a tip with the rest of the rubbish, the only time I will vote Liebour is when I’am dead and they use my name in a postal vote.

    There is no crisis. Ed Balls, Dougie Alexander and myself are all happily locked in fraternal embrace, carrying the Red Flag onwards into battle next week when we expect to defeat the Tories, UKIP, Lib Dems, TUSC, Greens, and start work on a truly socialist Britain.

    unions,voted Labour, wised up not long after
    they were elected in ’97.
    Maybe one day “Cool Dude” will also realise Labour
    is full of stinking hypocrites who don’t give a shit

    When Cool Dude leaves school and starts paying taxes it will dawn on the dozy fellow after his first paycheck that the Labour party, indeed all parties, are drones leeching off the workers. By workers I don’t just mean the working class with jobs.

    He’s so dim that he actually believes rich people pay less tax than the “poor” thanks to the Tories. Even dimmer to believe that the middle class, public school educated elite which comprises the Labour party care about the poor, other than as vote fodder.

    I don’t send my kids to private school. The girl goes to the mill to sweep a loom from 5:30, my boy climbs chimneys to clean them. Good honest work that pays for their rent and food.

    Harry Pollit says:

    The minimmum wage and tax credits are the same thing and the worse thing to happen to non-skilled workers since the slump of 1929. Tax credits are used to fund both low paid jobs and job immigration into this country that then competes for low paid no-skill jobs with the workers already here. They are a disaster.
    Labour had a golden oppotunity in 1997 to start moving the UK economy to a high value high skill model. It decided to borrow easy cash of and waste it and allow the banking sector to rip a new arse hole in the economy. Guess who this hurt most? Your beloved ‘working’ class that Labour was happy to sell down the river.

    You mean if you want to see the working class finally e.t.h.n.i.c.a.l.l.y. c.l.e.a.n.s.e.d and replaced oops sorry enriched with millions of foreigners.

    Perhaps historians will refer to it as the “final solution” to the problem of the english working class not voting for socialism and how annoyed the rich lefties have been made by this.

    I suppose for all concerned we must hope that the descendents of the men who fought hitler and napoleon don’t fight back. If they decide they won’t go quietly into that night and decide they won’t see the indigenous english made extinct without a fight then there will be carnage.

    Err that other party known as the coalition has unemployment at record lows, more women in work than ever before, long term and young person unemployment falling rapidly while reducing taxes and creating sustained growth

    There might be a few thousand Russian troop between Van Rimpuy and his expansion. True he could hoover up the Balkans and give us all the pleasure of dealing with them but can’t see that doing much other than increasing our welfare bill and lowering the cost of labour for picking fruit and veg. But if he thinks he’s rolling the EU show into former Soviet states that is dead in the water. Putin will push and get East Ukraine, then he’ll have a look at those Baltic states, easy to disrupt them and create Russian ethnic unrest in them. The EU will sh_t itself they think Russia is afraid of short term sanctions not a chance.

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
