I listened with interest to your off stage comments during David Cameron's reply to the Budget Statement in the House of Commons yesterday.
It brought to mind a song I remember first hearing many years ago and so as a heartfelt tribute to your thoughtful contribution to that debate and your contribution to public life in general I would like to dedicate this video to you.
I should warn my own readers that if you feel uncomfortable with the worst that the English language has to offer (and I do mean THE worst) then please don't play this clip and I do mean that.
However for Mr. Balls it all seems oh so very appropriate.
Love, hugs and kisses.
