Having already nodded approvingly at Bad Al's views regarding David Law's Gaygate debacle, CF was interested to learn, via John Rentoul, of Campbell's detestation of a man we all detest, would-be King of Next Labour, Ed 'Blinky' Balls. As Rentoul says, here are the highlights:
26 April 1995: Ed Balls "drivelled on endlessly". Blair said afterwards that he "only wanted grown-ups to attend his meetings".
16 July 1996: Balls was "full of bile" about Blair.
6 November 1996: "Ed Balls spoke drivel, a never-ending collection of words that just ran into each other and became devoid of meaning."
It's a dilemma, isn't it? On the one hand, no-one should believe a fucking word that git Campbell says. On the other hand, it's quite obvious that that's exactly what that other git Balls is like.
Both Labour, both gits.
