So … Alan Johnson is on his way out because of the news that his ex police protection officer is being probed about how he probed Alan Johnson’s wife, Laura Jane Patient. By all accounts, the experienced Scotland Yard based DC was on the job while he was supposed to be on the job! Tidy. No mention yet about Postman Twat’s alleged infidelity, with an HoC staff member, but I guess it’s only a matter of time before graphic details of his extra marital carnal goings-on start leaking out all over the place. So to speak.
So … as a result we see that Balls has managed to slide his way a little further up the greasy pole of new old New Labour, by accepting Red Ed’s offer to become the Shadow Chancer of the Exchequer. Leaving aside the fact that Balls was McSnotty Brown’s sidekick during the spend, spend spend era, that has left our grandchildren with £1 trillion of debt and bugger all to show for it, that’ll be yet another poacher that’s turned gamekeeper then. I mean who can forget, at the height of the MPs expenses scandal, Ed Balls and Yvette Cooper managing to flip their homes three times. Well, it appears that Red Ed obviously has.
The one positive thing that I can see, to come out of all this, is that Blinky will not rest until he’s managed to oust Mili minor, allowing him to retrieve the mantle of his long time mentor, Gordon ‘I’m still running the show’ Brown … and become Leader of the Labour Party.
Ed Balls really is like Alan B’stard, isn’t he.
That’ll mean the Labour Party will be totally unelectable for fucking years.
