Labour lacked credible economic policy

Alistair Darling is all over the media this morning with his revelations of life behind the scenes of Gordon Brown's Government. There are a lot choice anecdootes, many of which have already been aired in Andrew Rawnsley's excellent book: 'The end of the party'.

However, the most damning admission in interviews today is that Labour did not have a credible economic policy in 2010. The clear implication is that this is still the case.

Given the political evisceration of Ed Balls in the book and his position as Shadow Chancellor, one gets the impression that Darling's opinion will remain unchanged on Labour's lack of economic competence for some time to come.
