Ed Balls was always in favour of Plan A, in fact he always thought that Osborne was not going far enough fast enough.
Well..Flanders hasn’t quite pushed that lie yet but it can’t be long judging by the way she is spinning for Balls right now.
She told us on 5Live Drive at 18:45 that Osborne claims Plan A has proven to be successful.
Flanders thinks not claiming:
‘We’ll never be able to say if there was a better way to improve living standards.’
This is the journo who repeatedly peddled Balls’ Plan B and constantly suggested that we take advantage of low interest rates and borrow more and whilst we’re at it…build more houses on the government’s dollar.
She has spent the last three years telling us that there is a better way.
She also claimed that it is a weak point in Osborne’s claims that in fact Austerity had slowed….so maybe in fact it was Plan B lite.
But of course borrowing went up in reaction to the unexpected crash in Europe…the borrowing was a reaction to that and the subsequent effects on our own economy….therefore Austerity was till going ahead full steam but adjusted for new circumstances which knocked that economy.
