What a difference a year makes?

"Ed (Balls) will challenge Slasher Osborne and his mistaken programme of austerity that isn’t working. He is aggressive, smart, passionate and a battler with a big advantage over the coalition – a really good understanding of economics.

He will quickly challenge the ConDems’ long list of ­broken promises – VAT, tuition fees and the slashing of public sector jobs nobody voted for.


Ed Balls is going to stand up for ordinary working people and challenge this Tory-led Government at every turn."

David Blanchflower in the Daily Mirror 22 January 2011

Ed Balls, the shadow chancellor, has moved to challenge accusations that Labour is not credible on the economy by telling the public sector unions that he endorses George Osborne's public sector pay freeze until the end of the parliament, and that he accepts every spending cut being imposed by the Conservatives.

The Guardian, 14 January 2012
Confirming the widely held view that you can't shove a Rizla paper between the main unionist parties when it comes to economic policies. I don't know why you're so pleased to have that confirmed.
