Politician Ed Balls said his stammer got the better of him

A major politician criticised for making stumbles during a big speech has said he was affected by his stammer.

Ed Balls, the Shadow Chancellor, seemed unsure and confused when he was responding to the government's latest tax and spending plans - the Autumn Statement - on Wednesday.

Politicians on the government's side shouted and laughed at him.

But he's been defending himself, saying the hesitation was down to his stammer and he had nothing to be sorry about.

Mr Balls said: "Sometimes my stammer gets the better of me in the first minute or two, when I speak, especially when I have the Prime Minister and the Chancellor and 300 Conservative MPs yelling at me."

Unquote...

My understanding is that his speech impediment is not simply stammering, but leering and lying at the same time.

I'm surprised that every politician and general dodgy character doesn't have a stammer.......

Brown was also well known to suffer a stammer very badly when lying, a fact well documented after requiring his mobile phone to be waterproofed down to 30 atmospheres following discussions to a medical practitioner in Portugal in 2007.

I'd be more afraid of the likes of Osborne & his ilk they can lie without a stammer .
