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…

Quote of the Day

Trevor Kavanagh’s analysis of the Brexit process…

“Thanks to Mrs May and her useless Chancellor Phil Hammond, this will not come without pain. But we escape with imagination and true British grit or we will be boiled alive.

It means on this centenary Remembrance of our struggle against tyranny, we risk ceding non-military victory in Europe to the undemocratic forces of an unaccountable totalitarian regime.”
