LABOUR’S Shadow chancellor Ed Balls has set fingers tapping on Twitter again, this time by seemingly pledging his allegiance to Nick Clegg. In an interview in New Statesman magazine Balls said he could understand why the Liberal Democrat leader had formed a coalition with the Conservatives, adding that he would not be averse to discussing a similar pact between his party and Clegg’s in 2015. Clegg then tweeted ‘Ed Balls’ - a jokey nod to Balls’s famous faux pas, to which Balls responded ‘I agree with Nick.’
