Ed Balls today said he “couldn’t give a toss” about speculation he could be axed as shadow Chancellor.
Mr Balls hit back at his critics as a senior Labour MP openly speculated about whether he would continue in the job.
The shadow Chancellor has been in the spotlight following claims about his performance in the Commons last week when replying to George Osborne’s mini-Budget.
Rumours have gathered pace in Westminster that Ed Miliband could replace him before the 2015 general election, possibly with former Chancellor Alistair Darling.
Asked about a TV clip showing Labour MP Chris Evans with his head in his hands during Mr Balls’ statement, he replied: “It looks to me that Mr Evans had been in a nightclub until three in the morning and maybe done a bit too much karaoke and was trying to stay awake
No Mr Balls you where true to your name.
For four years i stood with pride as a liberal Democrat, i worked with some of the most passionate people that i had ever met who’s sole interest was the people they served, all that destroyed by men like this who seem more Tory than Tory,,power is the key to change the sad part is when you become the lap dogs of the Tory right you are no better than them, why keep the brand Liberal alive the Tories have offered silver and like fools my ex leaders took it openly and destroyed what was once an alternative that had pride in it’s beliefs today most cities have lost it’s Liberal Councillors and next year it’s leaders should fall by the way side all consumed by peoples hate for a tarnished brand.
CHANCELLOR of the Exchequer George Osborne’s Autumn Statement was dominated by short-term political considerations and a failure yet again to either address the underlying, structural problems which weaken the health of the British economy or move us to a low-carbon, affordable energy future, says the Green Party. Nothing has been done to prepare for the economic storm on the horizon.
In the Autumn Statement, Osborne insisted that “Britain’s economic plan is working” and that the Coalition Government is overseeing a “responsible recovery.”
In response to the Autumn Statement, Natalie Bennett, Green Party Leader for England and Wales, said:
“Mr Osborne was so keen to claim that this was an Autumn Statement for the long term, yet on this issue, as others, he is clearly a man who protests too much.
“Our current economic position is based on high and growing consumer indebtedness, as households are forced to borrow to cover basic costs, and a government-supported housing bubble. The Chancellor says that the sun is shining. Well that proves he hasn’t looked out the window today, or looked into the lives of millions of Britons who are struggling to pay the bills, in far too many cases forced to resort to extortionate payday lenders or foodbanks to get by.”
“Instead of working to restructure our economy, to rein-in our reckless, fraud-ridden financial sector, to boost manufacturers and the real economy, to create stable, decent-paying jobs that workers can build a life on, Mr Osborne’s focus is instead clearly short-term – to inflate the economy for the mere 18 months to the next General Election.”
Caroline Lucas, Green MP for Brighton Pavilion, said:
“The Autumn statement was yet another missed opportunity to take the action that we need that will genuinely move us to a low-carbon, affordable energy future.
“The Chancellor has done nothing to tackle the root causes of fuel poverty or soaring fuel bills. Instead of watering down energy companies’ obligations, he should have announced a major programme to make all homes super-energy efficient. If funded through recycled carbon taxes, this could bring an estimated nine out of ten homes out of fuel poverty, quadruple carbon savings, and create up to 200,000 jobs across the UK.” 
“The Chancellor has delivered a lavish Christmas gift to fracking companies – giving them tax breaks to support an irresponsible and dangerous dash for gas that will undermine the urgent action we need to reduce our carbon emissions.
“It’s ironic that a Chancellor who talks about going green is quite happy for the UK to continue to fund massive subsidies for both nuclear and fossil fuels. Taking real action to tackle climate change would create jobs, transform the economy, and help us meet our duty to secure a safe and habitable climate for future generations.”
Dr Derek Wall, International Coordinator of the Green Party of England and Wales stated:
‘Nelson Mandela was an inspiring figure, he showed that resistance to injustice is possible and that reconciliation is vital. Our memorial to him must be our resistance to injustice and inequality. Those who fight for justice are often condemned until they win the fight and belatedly are then described as heros, we need to be aware that across the world there are new Mandela’s who will be abused until they succeed in making necessary change.
However Nelson Mandela must also be remembered as a peace maker, advocating reconciliation between former enemies, this is a practical side of his work that we can all learn from. South Africa has made great progress but it is still a society where poverty divides communities, we are aware that from the Marikana massacre to battles against electricity privatisation, the long walk to freedom still has many miles to go. Mandela was never just one man, he was a product of a process iniated by South Africans and international networks for liberation and that process must continue’
‘Send them all back home’: In shocking video, UKIP councillor and key Farage ally launches astonishing racist rant… then tells MoS: ‘I stand by every word’
- Victoria Ayling says all immigrants in Britain should be sent back home
- Tells camera: ‘I just want to send the lot back, but I can’t say that’
- UKIP leader Nigel Farage said her comments were ‘slightly odd’
- Ayling said there is nothing ‘offensive or politically incorrect’ in video
It’s time we spoke of sensible immigration policy but what really hides under UKIPS bed?
What are Labours views on working till we drop? will they change this disgraceful attack by a callous and uncaring Government i don’t think so Perhaps we should be asking the question and forcing the answer.Who wants to work at 70,where do our youth take over if there are less jobs. But i suppose few Conservatives care about pensions.
Well it looks like Labour are having a change around i wonder will Mr Balkind be dropped from Swinton South in May? one Down already his he the next?
