Back to Spin School for Belardinelli

The spinning antics of Ed Balls’ minion Alex Belardinelli are a continual source of amusement in the Guy News room. Sometimes his cavalier attitude to the truth is outdone by a spectacularly poor effort. This morning he was tweeting about “the head of world’s biggest investment fund” saying the government “can and should change course” in a reference to PIMCO – the Pacific Investment Management Company. And who is their European chief? One Andrew Balls. Very much a relation.

Guido would normally say “leave the family out of it”, but it’s Belardinelli that has thrown that rule out of the window. As “Fiscal Gerrymandering” points out in the comments, it’s worth having a look at how Andrew Balls is rated: “Andrew ranks 172nd out of 241 fund managers for one of his bond funds and 68th out of 82 for the other one.” So not only biased, but below par. It must be a family trait…
