Tell public where Labour would cut says ex-Minister

At least one former Labour Government Minister is prepared to stand up and point out where her party is getting it wrong. According to today's Daily Telegraph, Labour’s former Communities Secretary, Hazel Blears told the BBC Politics Show that her party should be “explicit” about the cuts it planned to make.

She said: “I think we could be pretty explicit about where we had plans to cut. We said we would cut the deficit by half in four years, and I think we should absolutely stick to that and be clearer about what that means.

“The public expects us to at least give a broad direction – but I think they are worried that we haven’t been as clear as we ought to be.”

She knows that without that sort of detail Labour will continue to lack credibility on the economy. Does Ed Balls know that though?
Would this be Ed -Deficit? What deficit? - Balls?
