Although Ken Livingstone has done his best to steal Ed Balls’s thunder today, it’s important to take a moment and remember what April 28 is really all about. Today marks the 5th anniversary of Ed Balls day — the day the former shadow chancellor accidentally tweeted his own name.

Five years on and a lot has changed for Balls — and Labour. Happily, now he is no longer an MP — let alone a shadow Cabinet member — Balls seems to have a lot more time on his hands, which would explain why he has made himself a cake to mark the occasion.
