There is one thing I shall miss about him: the fact that, according to in the conventions of headline-speak, his utterances are all reported thus...
Labour not anti-business - Ballsor
Balls - Labour Government will 'balance the books'...and somehow I find myself mentally adding an invisible exclamation mark of disbelief each time. I admit it may be somewhat below the belt to poke fun at a chap's name but you have to agree that there has been a rich vein of satire to be mined here.
Given his previous appearances in this blog, there is, of course, only one possible victory song today...
As Labour takes a drubbing in every counting hall,
Let's raise a toast to seeing Brown's old enforcer fall
And cheer as Morley suffers the unkindest cut of all;
Who'd have believed it? Labour have lost their Balls!
Balls and Cooper had one of my blogs edited, serve him right.ReplyDelete
Demetrius, that definitely sounds like a story worth hearing; do tell (or link)...ReplyDelete

Thanks, Demetrius; I did have a look, but Blogger searches are about as efficient as the Spouse trying to find the mayonnaise in the fridge.ReplyDelete
Couldn't have happened to a nicer fella.ReplyDelete
