GORDON BROWN is ready to promote Ed Balls, his closest political ally, to chancellor this week in a high-stakes gamble to restore Labour’s political fortunes.

According to a top-level leak from Downing Street, the prime minister wants to make the appointment the centrepiece of a sweeping reshuffle on Friday, after the local and European polls. ....

personally i reckon its Ballsh!t

Fair play, while they have completely destroyed the economy and arsed everything up on a massive scale, at least it's vaguely entertaining.

Who'd have thunk it? A journalist thinking a reshuffle was imminent after what looks to be a Labour defeat in the Euro elections....

I'm still to be convinced but have an open mind. He'll be shite anyway.

breakfast meetings to tackle crisis, will read Balls up early as economy does Ed in

begging for money from the Orient, will read Beggar Balls in a China talking shop

if u r asking what that phrase means, its when a former chancellor Howe went on the offensive in a speech after he left the post, sheep savaging or something like that they called it, it helped pushed thatcher out they say

Not applicable. The reason Howe's speech was so effective was that there was something there to attack.

He caused this mess!

As Labour swept to power in the General Election of 1997 he [Ed Balls] continued as an economic adviser to Brown, who was then Chancellor. He then served as chief economic adviser to HM Treasury from 1999 to 2004, in which post he was once named the 'most powerful unelected person in Britain'.[4]

Huzzah!

Lets rid ourselves of this incompetent Chancellor who knows nothing except what he has learnt since gaining office in these exceptionally challenging times and get someone new in who knows what he is doing and hasn't ballsed up any of his previous appointments.

Seriously, I don't think Brown can afford to let Darling off the leash. If you think about what the badger has said to the media already, what might he say if bitter and spurned? Especially if talking up the ruin was no longer in his direct interest...
