Professor Ed Balls Teaching at King’s College London

In news that was buried at the end of last month with the announcement of England’s new lockdown, former Shadow Chancellor and Strictly star Ed Balls has taken up a position as Professor of Political Economy at King’s College London. The politician turned reality star had only been an irregular visiting professor since 2015…

In a King’s press release, Balls said:

“I have greatly enjoyed my six years at King’s teaching economics graduate students and Treasury officials and am delighted to have been asked to join the full faculty in this new part-time role.”

The move brings Balls’ career somewhat full circle. Before entering politics, he was a teaching fellow at Harvard University. Guido wonders if he’ll start teaching ballroom dancing on the side..
