Balls 1, Osborne Nil

No hangover from the Black and White Ball for George Osborne, he was up bashing bankers at the break of dawn. And what a coincidence he’s up against Balls in the House today in what will no doubt be the first of many ugly brawls. However before they even face each other, Balls has won the day.

Last night Balls claimed Osborne was “all talk and no action” and as if by magic Osborne gave ground. While the extra £800 million levied on those driving growth in the City will blunt Balls’ sword today, what about next week and the week after that? Will Osborne raise a tax a week to avoid standing by his principles?
