Ed Balls was accused last night of airbrushing out his Tory past to try to salvage his campaign for the Labour leadership.
'I started studying [the economy] in 1983 when Thatcherism was at its peak - and I realised immediately that I wanted to show you could run an economy in a way which delivered social justice,' said the former Schools Secretary. But it seems Mr Balls, an outside bet for the leadership behind David and Ed Miliband, is having difficulty with his memory.
While he was studying Politics, Philosophy and Economics at Keble College, Oxford, far from being utterly wedded to the Labour Party he was in fact a member of the university Conservative Association.
It seems that BALLS like all his NULABOUR COLLEAGUES is a stranger to the truth. The party who WILL SAY ANYTHING AND DO ANYTHING TO GET BACK IN POWER!
