The Times is carrying an interesting story about Ed Balls allegedly working for Gordon Brown before he became an MP. Apparently, if Balls was working for Brown while being paid to do so by a charity - in this case the Smith Institute - he would have been in breach of electoral law. But the story caught my attention for a different reason; mainly the fact that Balls has only been an MP since 2005. I find this staggering; his smug appearance, snivelling personality and highly punchable face have become such powerful reminders of Labour's attitude to politics that I honestly thought he'd been there from the very beginning.
Labour Bollocks is a blog dedicated to correcting, exposing and deriding the bollocks spouted by this Labour Government. As a Tory, it is true that I find doing this quite delightful. However, since the mainstream media doesn't seem that bothered with close scrutiny of the Government, I felt it necessary to add myself to the growing list of bloggers who carry out this important service. The views expressed on this blog are entirely my own, and do not represent those of the Conservative Party.
