Ellie (and Guido) Want #Balls4Leader

Remember Ellie Gellard (pictured) launching Gordon’s manifesto? She is hoping to repeat her campaign success all over again and is leading the online Twitter campaign to make Ed Balls the next leader of the Labour Party. It is going well, punters on the Political Smarkets betting exchange give him a 10% chance of winning. Ellie tweeted yesterday asking for messages of support for Blinky:

If you’re supporting @EdBallsMP and would like to tell us why, email me: ellie@edballs4labour.org

So Guido sent his own message of support and proudly added a #Balls4Leader twibbon to his own Twitter profile.

Dearest Ellie,

I think over the years Ed has shown the attributes, personality and judgement that would, if he were to become leader, guarantee Labour will remain in opposition. So Ed and I share the same goal, his victory over all other candidates for Labour leader.

Regards,

Guido

Guido would urge co-conspirators to show their support and add the twibbon to their Twitter profile. Ed can count on a lot of cross party support for his campaign to become Labour leader.

Many in CCHQ and Cowley Street have their fingers crossed that the Labour politician who polls the worst with the public could lead the opposition…

Quote of the Day

Peter Hain says of Ed Balls immigration plans…

“It’s a basic article of faith of the European Union, the free movement of labour and free trade… It’s in the Treaty of Rome.  So the chances of changing that are about the same as the chances of going on holiday to Mars.”

Quote of the Day

Tory MP Nick Boles says what everyone thinks…

“There is a timidity and lack of ambition about Mrs May’s Government which means it constantly disappoints. Time to raise your game, Prime Minister.”
