In my view, the point is that Ed Balls is a heavy-hitter and George Osborne is an intellectual lightweight, as far as economic matters are concerned. I am one of the few people that I know that has consistently supported Ed Balls viewpoint.
The Government fear Balls because he is a heavy hitter and they know that there has been a lot of smoke and mirrors policy-making. From the Government’s position, it’s better to throw mud and discredit Balls. BUT in my view, Balls is still dangerous.
Any thoughts on Balls future?
