Tripping Balls

The budget debate has been rather tetchy and laden with low blows and bitchiness. Excellent.

After Jess Norman had to withdraw the suggestion that the Shadow Chancellor must have been hallucinogenic drugs when he wrecked the economy, Ed Balls, (or Edgar according to Ben Brogan) saw an open goal. “I have never been on hallucinogenic drugs, would any of the front bench like to intervene…” Osborne giggled.

Is Balls really to lecture one other people’s university days activities though?

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.”
