Ed Balls has had a rather bad week and it now appears that Jim Knight, the schools minister, has been sent to mend fences with the Board of Deputies over Balls’s attack on the admission procedures of Jewish faith schools. This whole row over admissions was concocted by Balls himself but has ended up back-firing dreadfully on him. Maybe the Prime Minister should take his protege in hand and tell him that a period of silence on his part would be most welcome.
