You can tell your friend there with you he'll have to go

There's been a lot of fuss over the past few days about leaked correspondence that appears to implicate Shadow Chancellor Ed Balls in a plot to oust Tony Blair as party leader back in 2005.

My question is: why would anyone feel embarrassed at being involved in such a wholly beneficial and worthwhile enterprise? If they'd been planning to have him assassinated it would be a different matter, but attempting to remove the man who destroyed the Labour Party (and caused it to haemorrhage votes at every election after he became Prime Minister) is something Balls should be trumpeting from the rooftops.
