Giving evidence to MPs on the Children, Schools and Families Committee, Mr Balls tried to describe the cover of a departmental paper which carried a picture of a rainbow. But MPs dissolved in laughter when he added: "Isn't it red, yellow, pink and green, purple and orange and blue?"
Mr Balls admitted he had taken his guide from the children's song I Can Sing a Rainbow which lists the colours in the wrong order - as well as adding pink.
