Back in October Dave gloated that “the good news will keep coming”, today GDP is down 0.3%. Ed Balls won’t let him forget that complacency when he tours the television studios later this morning. Yesterday’s headlines seem pretty far away now…
Shadow Climate Change Secretary Caroline Flint had an unadulterated nightmare on the Daily Politics this afternoon. Here’s what she said before Ed’s ‘no’ shocker:
I can’t tell you what the situation is going to be at the next election, two and half years before when there are these changes going on in Europe.
And after Ed’s PMQs bombshell:
Andrew Neil : So we will go into the 2015 election with the Conservatives promising an in/out referendum and Labour not?
Caroline Flint: As it stands today that is correct.
Roll on the next four years…

The video shows a would-be assassin pointing a pistol at the leader of the moderate Bulgarian-Turkish liberal minority party, the Movement for Rights and Freedoms, Ahmed Dogan, during his speech at a national party conference in Sofia, Bulgaria.
The failed assassin named as Oktai Enimehmedov holds the pistol an inch away from Dogan’s face. Dogan flinches, and Enimehmedov pauses for a second without firing, giving the politician time to push away the gunman’s hand.
Ahmed Dogan was reportedly about to announce that he was stepping down as chief of the party he founded after the fall of communism.
Weirdy beardy LibDem MP Julian Huppert just got hit in the face with this leaflet live on the BBC. Video to follow…
Even the Taiwanese are laughing at Dave’s Big Speech…
