Ed Balls secures enough support to enter Labour Leadership race

The former Schools Sectary, Ed Balls has secured enough parliamentary nominations to enter the official race to succeed Gordon Brown as Labour Leader. Unsurprisingly he has secured the support of his wife, the former Work & Pensions Secretary, Yvette Cooper, the former Housing Minister, John Healey and the former Welfare Reform Minister, Lord Knight, who will also run Mr Balls's Leadership Campaign.
