The replacement of Alan Johnson with Ed Balls

The first question that Ed Miliband and indeed all Labour apologists should be asked in every interview this week is this:
If, as so many Labour figures are saying, Ed Balls is so superior to Alan Johnson as Shadow Chancellor then why did Ed Miliband appoint Alan Johnson to the role first? Should Ed Balls now be referred to as Ed 'second choice' Balls?

Listening to BBC 5Live, it seems that now he has resigned the BBC now seem able to report the criticisms of Alan Johnson's recent mistakes, shame they felt they had to keep them quiet previously.
