Britain's tabloids mourned Monday after former politician Ed Balls was booted out of a television dance contest, having won hearts with his try-hard attempts to improve his clunky "dad dancing".Balls finally got the chop on the BBC's "Strictly Come Dancing," one of Britain's most popular TV shows, after 10 weeks of pouting, hip thrusts and comically clodhopping efforts.The tubby 49-year-old novice – a former education minister and never the most popular of politicians – had been the surprise star of the show, despite his dodgy dancing.Newspapers lamented Balls' last tango.Even Cameron – whom Balls regularly riled in parliament – tweeted his best wishes.A former lead economics writer for the Financial Times newspaper, Balls was the chief economic adviser to the Treasury, the schools minister and then Labour's finance spokesman in opposition.
