Is Ed Balls a hypocrite?
Two years ago, May 2009, there were rumours Ed Balls and his wife Ms Cooper had taken out a super injunction to stop the media discussing their financial affairs. (guido fawkes)
Shadow Chancellor Ed Balls yesterday attacked celebrities who hide behind injunctions and said:
"I am affronted by the powerful – those who trade on their image – using the law to protect their privacy, by which I mean the exposing of their hypocrisy,’ he said.
He added that MPs should be ‘vigilant against a lurch to privacy against the public interest".
Perhaps Ed Balls can confirm he has never taken out any injunctions?
