LOOKED AT OBJECTIVELY...:

Ed Balls has seen the light on marriage: The angels will be dancing over Ed Balls's Damascene conversion to the cause of holy matrimony (George Pitcher, 28 Dec 2009, Daily Telegraph)

There is more joy in heaven, it must be acknowledged, over one lost sinner who repents than over 99 righteous people. So the angels will be dancing over Ed Balls's Damascene conversion to the cause of holy matrimony. After more than a decade of constructing the fiscal architecture to discriminate against married couples, Mr Balls has seen the light and come out in support of marriage.

Announcing a green paper next month, the Schools Secretary says he now wants to live a new life, bolstering "stable parental relationships" and "changing the direction and face of policy". That's intriguing, because he's changing the direction and face of the policies that his own Government, and very substantially he himself, has put in place.


...one could conclude that the upper classes war on marriage is designed to keep the lower classes down.
