Balls Miss-Speak

Ed Balls gave a point blank denial to Brillo that he had ever criticised Darling’s plans to halve the deficit on the Daily Politics. As you can see, the Shadow Chancellor has barely been able contain his glee at the frosty numbers, but he seems to have forgotten exactly what he told Bloomberg in his pitch for job:

“I told Gordon Brown and Alistair Darling in 2009 that – whatever the media clamour at the time – even trying to halve the deficit in four years was a mistake. The pace was too severe to be credible or sustainable.”

Just like he never briefed behind anyone’s back…

    No one is going to care what Balls said in the past, they will care when unemployment hits three million and carries on up. Osborne will try its the fault of the weather, but that won’t cut much ice in the middle of July.

    Thats if the Coalition lasts till July, more likely to be a repeat of the Irish situation with the Libdems running for cover.

    Sir William Waad says:

    The trouble with the ‘everything’s going wrong’ meme is that, when things stop going wrong, you look silly. Labour has no chance of forcing an election unless they can break the Coalition. They have no chance of doing that as long as the LibDems stand so low in the polls. Of course they will seek to take a short-term advantage from bad economic figures but they need a strategy for winning an election in 2014 or 2015.

    Shame you didn’t brief the BBC about those words before he was interviewed, so they could totally ignore it.

    This fits in with Balls’ Masterplan. Outright denial that Labour policy had anything to do with the Bust in 2008, including the risable tri-partite regulatory nightmare, and the re-writing of recent history, to his own advantage, by continually twisted the facts while refusing to enter into debate.

    Balls is a compulsive liar.
    Shame the TV news interviewers appear either badly briefed,complicit or too intimidated to pick him up on it.

  25. 25
    Paul Marks says:

    Mr “Ed” Balls is clearly a liar – but that is not the worst thing about him.

    What is more concerning is his leftist establishment belief that government spending (financed by creating money FROM NOTHING, lending it out to banks and then borrowing it back at higher rates of interest) is “good for the economy”.

    Mr Balls is a full on “Stimulus” man (yes that is as obscene as it sounds – although in a different way). Like Nancy Pelosi in the United States he most likely believes that welfare payments are the “best stimulus of all” because “all the money is spent at once and on consumption……” and on and on.

  26. 26

    No it isn’t. Ed Balls categorically denies that untrue allegation.

    jgm2 says:

    But it’s dead easy to just ignore every question with…

    ‘What the voters in my constituency really want to talk about is……[lie]’

    It’s fucking simple. Brown used to do it too. In fact they all do it. Harman, Blair, Cooper, Straw – they all just invent conversations as a means of ‘getting out the message’ and just totally ignore any direct questions.

    If I were an interviewer they would get away with that just once. Then I wouldn’t bother having them back on the show. Unfortunately it is not the interviewer who gets to decide – or, even if they do, it’s because they’re so far up Labour’s arse that they’re quite happy to be used in that way.

    GORDON : Look at Harman.Yapping on about the economy like she knows anything about it. She shouldn’t be allowed further than two feet from her Aga. Why did we ever let women into our game, Ed?

    ED.: Terrible decision. Look at her now..did she just say Extra Terrestrial Growth theory? Good grief..Brillo will mash her up again..there is no place for women in politics.

    GORDON: Quite. Just a bunch of bigots with a shoe fetish. Harman discovered all she knows about numbers from Foxy bingo. .. I don’t know.. they should all be left to dancing or sewing or something. Politics is no place for a woman.
    I’ve always said that. Just a few for window dressing..rest of ‘em..back bench bullshitters. That Jacqui Smith was alright though. I liked having her about. She bought in that crumble. And she had tic-tacs in her bag. And she looked like a man…

    Having Balls back on the nation’s tv screens will do wonders for the shoe industry – I ran out of my supply to throw at the monitor just after the last election. He is as loathesome now as he was last year. If he could answer a straight question with a straight answer he would at least put some distance between himself and Osb. What he fails to grasp is that the electorate (in broad terms) recognise his role in screwing the economy. A modicum of contrition (at least a skipload) would be a useful start. Every time I see / hear him, he’s just a reminder why I will never vote labour again.

    Clearly many of those things could have been completed with more money thrown at them.

    Anyone know why Dave doesn’t think we need them? I’ve wondered why they don’t get mothballed like they do in the US. (apart from the obvious that we’ve got no deserts.)

    Hard Times Ahead for Dave & Co says:

    The trouble is that people DO believe what Miliband and Balls are saying and will believe them helped along by the left-biased media and BBC …..when they say that Osborne and Cameron have mishandled any chance of a recovery by their cuts being to quick and too deep and they have no plan B to create jobs etc if Plan A fails

    The cuts haven’t even started to bite yet and the UK economy has dropped back…blame the weather if you like but unless the economy picks up in the next quarter there will be a lot of very worried people in the Tory and LibDem party.

    You also have to understand that local councils throughot the country are cutting front line services which most people will notice in their day to day lives(which the Coalition said is not necessary)whilst stating that they have no option becuase of the cuts.A case in point on BBC Midlands Today this lunch time they stated that Birmingham CAB…a front line service is closing in February…it helped 56,000 people last year.It’s grant of £600k from Birmingham Council has been cancelled…they are blaiming central government and it’ll get a lot worse and all Labour has to do is sit back and do nothing…unless things get better they have every chance of be re-elected in 2015 whatever happened in the past when they were in government.People have very short memories…the Coalition’s Honeymoon is over

    Martin Day says:

    Guido Fawkes is very pleased that Ed Balls has become shadow chancellor. He brings great expertise, and will continue the direction of Guido’s economic policy – reducing the deficit while focusing on growth and jobs and putting families first. Here, Guido sets out our alternative.
    After Cameron & Osborne’s reckless gamble, 2011 is a critical year for British economy « Guido Fawkes

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
