Ed Balls on borrowing, inflation, taxes and recession


The shadow chancellor reckoned the prime minister owed him an apology over Britain going back into recession.

He said David Cameron called on him to apologise 18 months ago for saying the UK could go back into a "double dip recession".

Ed Balls said: "Who owes who an apology now? David Cameron and George Osborne to all the families, pensioners and businesses who suffering because of their mistakes."

Andrew Neil pressed him over what Labour would do for taxes and spending plans if they were in power.
