Nick Clegg Is Making Eyes At Ed Balls By Tweeting “Ed Balls”

The Liberal Democrat leader likes a side order of lols with his coalition planning.

1. The Deputy Prime Minister just tweeted “Ed Balls”.

2. You remember – Ed Balls day? The Labour shadow chancellor who tweeted his own name by accident and became a meme?

4. Clegg extended the, er, Twitter olive branch of peace following an interview Ed Balls gave to the New Statesman.

Balls told the magazine that he could work in coalition with Nick Clegg after the 2015 general election.

He explained that Labour is “fighting hard for a majority” but is happy to “deal with the situation as we find it” if another hung parliament requires a Labour-Lib Dem coalition.

This would involve dealing with Nick Clegg.

Which seems to tickle the Lib Dem leader, judging by his proclamation.

5. Or, as Nick Clegg’s spokesman told BuzzFeed:

It’s a little joke for Twitter after Ed Balls was nice about Nick in his interview today.

6. This is how coalition governments are planned in 2014.

7. UPDATE: This shows no signs of stopping anytime soon.
