According to tomorrow's New Statesman, that's what the man said:
I hope this happened. Not for any real political reasons, or because I think it'll have any bearing on the next election, but simply because I can't stand Cameron's odious fucking face.
So then, Obama: on the money? Is this a classic pot/kettle case? You decide!
(Aside: Kudos to the New Statesman for their 'Balls lives up to his name' headline on the website. There hasn't been enough exploitation of the Balls surname in the media for my liking.)
