Ed Balls to announce candidacy tomorrow

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Excellent, Balls has decided to go for it, 4 months of war guaranteed in Labour Party. He must have been taking blinking lessons in the last few days......
  2. Lets hope he wins and makes the balls of the labour party :lol:

    Speaking of which how many balls jokes can the arrse users come up with :lol:
  3. AFAIK - Whilst David Milliband is the bookies' favourite, Ed Balls is the unions' choice. So yes, hopefully, plenty of infighting to follow...
  4. Balls to Balls!!!
  5. I only became aware of his 'Personality' during the election.

    F ing Mental.
  6. If he wins he becomes "Wonderbollock"


    I claim copyright on that cnut also.
  7. Balls + Millibands = Meat & two Veg
  8. And a banana....

    Ed Balls Campaign Diary*

    One down, four to go. I knew Cruddas would crack when I sent Chris Leslie round with the file. A little show and tell of CCTV footage and old Jon soon looked into his heart and realised he didn’t want to stand after all. That little girl Burnham is next.

    Sick to the back teeth of creeping around the brain-dead lobby fodder the PLP have been left with. After having to listen to Harman drone on all day the last thing you want to do is spend the night pressing the flesh in the Strangers bar with that lot. Not sure how many nights I can keep it up – nobody bought me a beer.

    To make matters worse got home, sans ministerial car, what do I get? No dinner and that four-eyed prick Crick on Newsnight claiming that I might not be able to get enough signatures for my nomination. What the hell does he know? It’s not like anyone has ever answered the phone to him. That f****r has been on my case for too long.

    On the up side, I did grease up to Bercow and he was re-elected, worth it to get that drunk he married to back me on Twitter. Had lunch with Stan Greenberg, he said he has a plan for tacking to the left now Cruddas is out of the way, though he’s got some explaining to do after telling me it would be a breeze in Morley.

    The big announcement is planned for tomorrow. I will be leader.
  9. Balls was a complete twat as Education sec. My wife goes into fits of rage at the mere mention of Balls (not mine I should add) because of his policies towards Home Education and special needs

    Seriously though, I'm happy for either of the two Millibands, or Balls to win.

    I know the electorate can be a bit thick, but surely . . . . .

    DOH! :oops:
  13. Ed Balls is a jumped up mediocrity. He'll do nicely.
  14. Chris Leslie. There's a name from the past. He was the MP for Shipley in a protest vote to get rid of Marcus Fox.
    I was a director of a local company. Our girl Friday for the firm, Rachel, went school with Chris Leslie. Rachel NEVER swore, but the mention of Chris Leslie had a string of expletives come out of her mouth rarely seen on ARRSE. He was a total cnut even at school.
  15. There's been a rather cynical suggestion that everybody joins the Labour Party for a pound (yes, they are that desperate), nominates some previously-agreed upon vile, bigoted, unelectable monstrosity like Harman (and the Tories are supposed to be the nasty party?) for party leader, resigns their membership and sits back with some popcorn to watch the inevitable train wreck.
