Ed Balls' connections with under fire bank Barclays were under being seriously investigated after a picture materialised of him opening one of the bank's leading branches.
Mr Balls commended the bank for ‘changing the face of banking’ at the event in Leeds three years ago.
He has been under mounting pressure for his mismanagement of regulating banks efficiently at the time of the Barclays rate rigging scandal, being
The Shadow Chancellor was once economic adviser to ex-chancellor Gordon Brown who established Labour’s policies over more than a decade.
The photograph of Mr Balls opening the Barclay’s branch appears on his own website entitled ‘Barclays changes the face of banking with ground breaking new branch.’
Chancellor George Osborne claimed he would like to see Mr Balls in the ‘dock’ over the disgrace as he was City minister when the interest rate-fixing went on.
Mr Osborne said: ‘No-one more than me would like to see [shadow chancellor] Ed Balls in the dock.’
He told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme that the former minister should be ‘afraid’ of a banking investigation.
He added: ‘Over the next few months, instead of waiting for a decade after the scandal itself to get some answers.’
Also quick to jump on the story was Tory MP Jesse Norman who said Mr Balls was a ‘critical figure’ in the scandal.
The Government have indicated Mr Balls needs to answer questions on whether he spoke to the Bank of England or to Barclays.
In more tit-for-tat, a spokesman for Mr Balls made it clear that he was Children’s Secretary in 2008 when ‘senior Whitehall figures’ were also supposedly involved.
This whole corrupt affair, at least as so far presented by the mainstream media, is just the tip of a foul and rotten iceberg of corruption involving Cameron, Clegg and Miliband, plus all those who have gone before, Blair included, and proves beyond reasonable doubt who is really pulling the strings.
The LibLabCon is in reality The Bankster Party, and our so-called democracy is, at the very least, an illegal and complex corporate fraud, dressed up as the acceptable face of our national political leadership to the exclusion of all and any genuine representation of our people's true desires and expectations.
A terminally corrupt, unconstitutional, ultra-fascist dictatorship, rotten from the top down.
