On Drums Ladies & Gentlemen, Ed Balls…

 

Politics is, someone once unkindly said, “showbiz for ugly people”. This is the increasingly likely future for moderate figures in the Labour Party with a personality and public profile. Walk ons in light entertainment shows; Stella Creasy could become a Radio 2 DJ, Tom Watson a media pundit on music, Chuka a chat show host, Liz Kendall would be perfect for daytime television – you get the idea. Ed’s better on the drums than he was on the deficit… boom tish!

Ed’s Balls on Single Market

Ed Balls claimed on last night’s This Week that “many people on the Leave campaign were saying they wanted to stay in the single market“. He was then unable to name one (because there weren’t any).

Balls Loose on ITV

Glitterballs was showered with TV offers after dad-dancing his way to stardom on Strictly. Today he’s done the dirty on Auntie and announced he will appear as “honorary man” on an ITV Loose Women special tomorrow.

Ayesha Hazarika on the redemption of Ed Balls

“Balls on Strictly is the equivalent of comfort eating for us politicos and our hysteria is masking a rather difficult question. Is this the best that British politics can muster right now?
