Ed Balls Lies He Had No Role in Co-Op Britannia Merger… But Claimed Credit for Deal in 2010

In his interview on Channel 4 News last Night Ed Balls told Cathy Newman:

“I had no role at all in the Co-op bank’s merger with Britannia… That’s a Tory smear, it’s entirely untrue.”

Yet in this blogpost written in September 2010, Balls claimed credit for the deal:

“I was also able to give the Treasury’s support for a new Private Members Bill that led to the creation of the first ever ‘super-mutual’ bringing Britannia Building Society and the Co-op Bank together in the interests of customers, rather than the banking elite.”

Look into Blinky Balls’ eyes as he deceives the nation…
