Labour’s top mathematician has been accused of editing the wikipedia entry for Nicola Sturgeon, after his name was spotted in several places on her page.
The shadow chancellor admitted to perusing her slot, but only to find out if she’d said anything nice about him.
“I was reading her entry, trying to find out if she likes me, when I suddenly found myself in a ‘text altering’ situation”, said Balls.
“Obviously, this was in between some routine searches for my own name in Google, and I think somewhere along the line, that search engine screwed up.”
Edits to a Wikipedia page that described Nick Clegg as ‘funny, bright, and full of testosterone’ have been tracked to a government PC, his.
The changes which included lines saying he was ‘well respected within the coalition’ and ‘an honest man, true to his word’ have now been corrected, but questions are being asked into who made the incorrect statements.
“I know they have tracked the changes back to my computer, but I promise it wasn’t me,” Nick Clegg told reporters.

Pietersen surprised all by writing an entire paragraph
The England cricket team have come back from the brink and recorded a 6-0 Ashes victory thanks to a superb team effort in editing Wikipedia. Captain Alistair Cook said the emphatic victory should silence all the knockers who thought the team couldn’t tie their own shoelaces, let alone competently operate a laptop computer.
England coach Andy Flower said he was proud of the boys, especially Kevin Pietersen who hadn’t previously written anything longer than a tweet. And the backroom staff also played their part with Geoff Boycott’s Nan encouraging the team to concentrate on ‘lines and length’ when editing the Ashes 2013-14 Wikipedia entry.
