Does Anybody Really Like Balls?

It is possible that Ed Balls could come last in the leadership contest behind Diane Abbott and Andy Burnham. If so it would be the final humiliation of the TaliBrown, the cabal of bullying second-raters who ousted three-time election winner Tony Blair to install Gordon Brown, a politician who has never won a competitive election in his life.

With rumours* circulating that following Charlie Whelan’s inability to get Unite to endorse him, he’ll withdraw from the contest, Blinky says ‘I fight on; I fight to win. I’m in it to win it. I am the best person to fight this coalition.’ Good, it will give us a good laugh to see him totally humiliated.

*You first read about Balls withdrawing and supporting David Miliband in return for endorsement for the Shadow Chancellorship on this blog.

Quote of the Day

Peter Mandelson tells Emma Barnett…

“I think that Jeremy Corbyn himself should search his conscience and ask himself whether he’s the best person to lead the Labour Party into the general election with the best chance of success for the party.”
