Talking Balls Again

Guido returned from a long lunch to find his inbox spammed by Ed Balls who is using his parliamentary, taxpayer-funded, email account to not only promote his overblown Shadow Home Office activities but also recruit sign-ups to the Labour Party email list. Balls is using his leadership bid email list, but he’s definitely not on manoeuvres, despite his promise not to “follow any crap” from his leader. Guido is checking the rules now…

It seems he has been a busy boy, at the same time as spamming, he is tweeting about his campaign to stop police numbers being cut, but it seems conveniently forgot the then Home Secretary Alan Johnson’s confirmation that police numbers would be cut if Labour won the election. Clearly still getting his head round the graveyard brief.

It’s almost as if they are better suited to each others Shadow jobs…
