Ed Davey: Ed Balls ate my homework

This morning someone tweeted a link to an interview Ed Davey gave when he joined the cabinet in 2012.

As well as telling the story of his extraordinary bravery in rescuing a woman from the tracks at Clapham Junction, it gives us an insight into Ed's schooldays.

He was head boy at the private Nottingham High School and one of his near contemporaries there was Ed Balls (whose father was a great campaigner for comprehensive education).

Ed Davey recalls:
"Ed Balls was in the year below me. I lent him my O-level history notes and he never gave them back."
