Oh Balls!

[ #38980 ]

First ministerial scalp. But the position of Ed Balls and Yvette Cooper is now untenable. Two ministers, married. So £300,000 a year joint household income, but that's not really enough to maintain a £1e6 property portfolio, is it, so obviously they needed some help from the fees office. Andrew Mackay quit over less than this*. So what happens now? Is it

  1. They resign
  2. Gordon sacks them✝
  3. They stay, and Gordon tries to defend the indefensible

The music still hasn't stopped. How many more days of revolations have the torygraph got in store for us?

*only two homes, and no 2 × double salary (MP, a full time job. Oh, and minister, a full time job).

✝ thanks to Mr oh-shit-I'm-going-to-get-deselected Malik, he already has to have a reshuffle.
