Balls Up – The Flip Just Flopped

Ed balls, Gordon’s annointed amongst us, claimed after weeks of alleging that the Tories had a “secret agenda” to cut £35 billion, that by 2008 a Conservative government would be spending £15 billion a year more than Labour. The flip just flopped. The Tories will seize on this to blunt the Labour attack. Guido has this handy diagram for Ed to refer to as he revises and modifys his statement. Bet he is feeling a little endogenous now, eh? Best you ‘do a Letwin’ and disappear for the rest of the campaign.
