Ed Balls


Recommended Posts

To be fair. The other Ed was on telly last week with the same liebour groupthink message. Be in no doubt, these goons have made a pact to destroy whatever they left of this country.

By contrast - outside the Eurozone and with long-term real interest rates at 0.8% for both 10 year and 30 year bonds – Britain faces no difficulty servicing its debts.

What he seems to be saying is, this is a golden oppurtunity to borrow even more money at even lower costs because while rates are low, debt is cheap.

Isnt that what homebuyers thought? That worked out well. I mean, its completely out of the question rates might have to rise and we'll still be dependant on debt.

I guess £70bn+ (ie nearly a fifth of tax take) just to service our debts isnt high enough, eh, Ed.

How can anyone consider this guy PM material. He's not even mortgage applicant material.

A quote that i posted last night from Labour PM James Callaghan

We used to think that you could spend your way out of a recession and increase employment by cutting taxes and boosting government spending. I tell you in all candour that that option no longer exists, and in so far as it ever did exist, it only worked on each occasion since the war by injecting a bigger dose of inflation into the economy, followed by a higher level of unemployment as the next step.

Ed seems to be in denial, every time I see him come under pressure from questioners saying "but these are the policies that got us into this mess" he collapses like the air going out of a balloon. A real political lightweight.

Yes, even the guardian comments are overwhelmingly negative.

Its almost laughable that in trying to get away from 'new labour' the 3 men argurably most tied to it are the three shortlisted to win the leadership.

I think I get to vote in the labour leadership campaign because I'm in the NUT.

Assuming my vote doesn't get pilfered in some kind of nightmarish union block vote scam, I'm going to vote for Ed Balls. Not because I like him or his politics - I despise both of them with a passion I can't even begin to put into words. Rather, the thinking is that the man is so slimy and utterly unelectable he will ruin the Labour party for a generation. This would have to be a bit of a result as far as I'm concerned.

Balls, Osbourne, ken Clarke, Shirley Williams, Tony Blair - whoever you vote for(party) - they are stuffed with Bilderbergers - influencing/giving orders for our governance!

These people do not work in the 'interests' of the population of the UK - they have their OWN agendas!
