Labour loses it’s chancellor and chooses Balls(up).

Something of a surprise and possibly explaining why Alan Johnson got in a pickle with NI rates a few days ago :

Alan Johnson stands down over claims of a love affair

Alan Johnson resigned as shadow chancellor after fewer than four months in the job amid claims that his marriage had broken down.

Mr Johnson stood down, saying he was finding it “difficult to cope” with his personal crisis while carrying out his front bench duties. One political website last night suggested he had an affair with a civil servant.

His sudden resignation threw Labour into turmoil and represented a severe blow to Ed Miliband, who appointed Mr Johnson to the post in October.

It left the Labour leader facing serious questions over his judgment. Ed Balls, the original favourite for the job, was immediately installed as Mr Johnson’s successor. The Conservatives described his appointment as a return to the discredited Labour economic policies of Gordon Brown.

Should be amusing with Balls getting his dream job after all.
