    It's official.

    Balls has declared himself as a candidate for the Labour leadership.

    Let the dirty tactics begin..........

    We can only hope, pray, and beseech the Almighty that Mr B replaces Mr B as Labour Leader. I say this, of course, as someone who loathes them both.

    As for the real 'Balls up' - I'm waiting for the first leaked youtube Ed Balls / Mrs Balls (Yvette Cooper MP) 'edcational' video to come out. That'd be one for a very specialised market indeed......
  5. Here's hoping for a nice undignified campaign with lots of revelations, bitching and wounded reputations.

    Some good old fashioned politicking.
  6. ....and Burnham tomorrow apparently. Plus some old hard left socialist no-hoper has thrown his flat cap into the ring. We've got to have at least one woman otherwise Harriet will throw a track. Could be fun!

    Fight, fight, fight, fight!!
  7. His campaign manager is Sarah McCarthey-Fry .... the woman who just lost her seat by over 7000 votes :D
  8. It won't be over until the wishes of the Prince of Darkness are known.
  9. S_F,

    The new BNP poster boy.
    Just look into his kind and caring eyes.

  10. My son's girlfriend remarked on the more than passing resemblance that Herr Balls has to Nick Griffin...

    For myself, I am amused that the public school and Oxford educated Balls feels it necessary to affect a 'mockney' accent to pretend that he is working class and has come up the hard way, instead of the traditional New Liarbour route of 'never had a proper job'.
  11. I hope he wins because he is so awful and repellent that I doubt anyone would vote Labour, excepting maybe his wife, 'llech' and 'Sven/Whet' and one or two other lame-brains.
  12. He was terrible on PM last night, Eddie Mair had him on the ropes simply by asking if there were any policies of Gordon Brown's that he'd disagreed with.
  13. Ed Balls Campaign Diary*

    Yvette still isn’t talking to me, I think she might be getting it in the ear from the sisterhood about not running. She refused to support me at the launch, she says she is “still thinking about who to support for leader”. Even Sarah went on about how much she loved Gordon. All I ever hear is “please let go of my arm.” Did you see the people I had to stand next to at the launch? F**k me, these are the people I have to listen to. Think it went pretty OK, didn’t use surgical glue on the eyelids and didn’t blink or stutter. Therapist called to congratulate me, proof Gordon’s old pills work even past their sell-by-date.

    As ever that Murdoch-bitch Burley gave me a hard time on Sky – it was all “Gordon this, Brown that, you’ve got a tiny majority blah blah blah.” She’s just some bigoted old woman.

    On the train back from the launch I had to listen to He-Who-Shall-Not-Be-Named slagging me off on BBC Radio Leeds. He zeroed in on my line that the bunch of salad dodging chavs I have to represent voted BNP, Stan said that was a killer line. The cheeky fact-checking f****r said he was backing me and urging me on to victory. Nicola says ignore him and stay calm.

    Talking of bloggers, it seems that Sion hasn’t f***ed up the Labour-Uncut project yet, early days yet. It was much easier setting up our own blog rather than having to suck up to Straw’s toking son or Draper’s old intern – who seems to be in Miliband major’s pocket anyway. What with Kerry McCarthy now backing me, it looks like the Twitternets will be mine.

    I will be Leader. I will.
  14. Dianne Abbot has decided to stand thereby ticking two of the PC boxes.

    Roll up, roll up - anyone else want a go!
