BILDEBERGER BALLS STAKES HIS CLAIM FOR LEADERSHIP OF LABOUR PARTY
Brown is doomed, that's for sure.
But how can the UK not be governed by a Bilderberger? The answer is simple; it can't. That's why Mandelson was parachuted in last August with the agreement of Bilderberger Brown (allegedly Mandelson's enemy) and Bilderberger Barosso of the EU.
Balls will become leader, and soon. His Bilderberg credentials, and his willingness to foster the greed in The City that has led us into this financial mess, will I believe guarantee this.
Maybe Cameron's anti-EU politics will lead to his downfall and Balls will save the EU.
We'll have to wait and see.
The EU is essential to the rapidly unfolding agenda. If Ireland votes YES then there are only a few people who can stop the EU and one of them is Cameron. If he becomes PM then we could be in for some fun!

In an interview with The Daily Telegraph, the Schools Secretary suggests that James Purnell, a leading Blairite who walked out of the Cabinet last month, had suffered a “midlife crisis”.
The strength of the remarks about a fellow Labour MP is unusual and, in the context of the Norwich by-election defeat, will be seen as a direct shot across the bows of a potential challenger to replace Mr Brown.
Asked about Mr Purnell’s decision to quit, Mr Balls says it is a matter for the former minister to explain.
But speaking of the need for the party unity he adds: “There are times when individuals in their early 40s have crises. They buy motorbikes or go off and travel round the world and have a gap year. Sometimes people do that. I don’t think for political parties to have those kinds of moments is very sensible, especially when you are at your moment of greatest clarity and vision.”
Mr Balls can hardly hide his disdain for Mr Purnell’s latest career move, joining a Left-wing think tank.
He says now is not the time “to be going off to think tanks to find out what your identity really is”.
In a reference to Cabinet colleagues such as David Miliband, who did not follow Mr Purnell out, Mr Balls says: “A lot of people looked into themselves… and said, 'What’s the right thing to do?’ They made decisions which were right for them, right for the country and right for the Labour Party.”
