Dear Chief Secretary to the Treasury,
I'm afraid to tell you there's no money left.

For Ellie

A picture, especially for BevaniteEllie, who you may recall hopes Mr Balls' will win the competition and become leader of the Labour Party.

Here he is, in all his glory - courtesy of the Daily Mail

The picture is, incidentally, captioned "Ed Balls shows off more than a six-pack in skimpy sportswear". The newspaper article correctly refers to him as "Labour heavyweight"

And to think that this man has had the audacity to lecture people about their 'unhealthy' lifestyles.

That's a keg.

Macheath said...

'Ed has...the fire in the belly to lead us...' (Bevanite Ellie, quoted in your previous post)

...and the coal-scuttle as well, by the looks of it.

Fur Elise?

Reminds me of that old joke:
"Diets not working?

No time to exercise?

Want a sure way to lose six pounds of ugly useless flab?

Try our guillotine!"

@ Leg-Iron - 'Party 7', or 'Party 10'?

@ Macheath - Well, the belly is certainly full to overflowing, the 'beneath' looks a bit weird.

@ Chuckles - darn you, I'll be hearing that in my dreams now!

@ DerekP - *chuckle*
