Ed Balls has been summoned to appear in court for non payment of bills. Apparently he left his constituency office in such a state that it had to be professionally cleaned. Reports state that he has offered to pay the landlord part of the money but the offer was declined; the landlord sounds pretty cheesed off!
Of course it is difficult not to point out that this is not the first time that Balls has left an office in a mess. He really doesn't appear to be very good at sums either personally or professionally.
The point of this post however, is that this man is the Shadow Chancellor of the Exchequer. Has he no pride? Even if he believes that the landlord is out of order he left the mess and so he should pay. The very fact that he is quibbling over a few hundred pounds suggests that he is a bit short of cash. Should we really have a man touting for the position of Chancellor of the Exchequer who cannot manage his own finances?
The point that I don't get is that Alan Johnson was clearly useless even before his wife played away, even Ed Miliband's brother won't serve with him, Ed himself and wee Dougie Alexander and Jim Murphy couldn't recognise a British army uniform and Yvette Cooper is married to Ed Balls!
These are the elite socialists who want people to elect them to run the country! They succeed Gordon Brown and Tony Blair who were supported by people like Peter Mandelson and John Prescott. All of them have track records for misdemeanour as long as their arms and all of them are elite socialists. I won't go on but the message is obvious...the opposition front bench is without doubt the weakest in the history of our nation.
