But the annual celebrations on Twitter show no sign of abating (despite the inevitable backlash). In fact, they even started last night - aka 'Ed Balls Eve':

The excitement was building:

And of course, Australia got in there first:

Happy Ed Balls Day, everyone!

UPDATE: Ed Balls has responded to Ed Balls Day. By saying 'Ed Balls'. Thank you, Sky News (and Ed Balls):
