What is Ed Balls thinking?


Not only is the shadow chancellor's sportsmanship currently being called into question, but according to the New Statesman, he's facing pressure from both sides at work.

When that support - and the economic credibility that it brings - is up from grabs, why risk frightening everyone with loose talk of re-engineering the whole of capitalism?"
