Ed Balls says voters will turn to Labour on economy
Ed Balls has claimed that the autumn statement, in which the government was forced to admit that its deficit reduction plans were badly off course, will prove to be a game-changer that will see voters increasingly turn to Labour.
The shadow chancellor says he believes his party is
ahead of the electorate on the issue,
and will reap the benefits in 2012.
Balls said the public has not yet fully understood that the government plan is not working, or even delivering on its own terms of balancing the books by 2015. He said it would take time to filter through.
