The Telegraph this morning claims that: 'Balls, like Brown, has a Rolls-Royce brain'.

I strongly suspect you could have said the same thing about Stalin and Mao. You could certainly have said it about Robespierre. It entirely misses the point.

Both Brown and Balls are profoundly weird. They may be clever. But they are also undeniably emotionally stunted. Neither possesses an ounce of charm or any other characteristic that makes people likeable. They bear an uncanny resemblance to Edward Heath.

Dimly aware of this defect, they compensate by assuming a goggle-eyed, bullying insistence that only they know best.

It is precisely no surprise that two such obviously dislikeable people should have allied.
