The Labour Party was destroyed forever when they thought it funny to leave this note in the drawer for the new coalition government. "Dear Chief Secretary, I'm afraid there is no money. With kind regards - and good luck! Liam."
Apparently Ed Balls has said it was a joke !
It never made me laugh or anyone else I know come to think of it.
I couldn't give a toss who gets their job.
The Labour Party leadership candidates, apart from dear ol Jezza, are insipid vacuous neo-liberal c***s. this is just more political opportunism with Burnham attempting to prove how hip and down with da yoof he is.
