Balls up for cuts shows Labour's real position

Ed Balls has showed his hand on the cuts, angering unions and demonstrating once again just how close they are to the Lib Dems and Tories.

Labour are backing the cuts agenda - this is from the Guardian: "My starting point is, I am afraid, we are going to have keep all these cuts."

They are ignoring the alternative which is to ensure that the rich tax avoiders actually pay their way in society rather than making ordinary and poorer people pay.

Let us hope that the electorate realise just how far Labour have left their values behind.

So, is it Green Party policy to repeal ALL the cuts? As a Green Party spokesperson, is that what you're doing here?

We have a fully costed manifesto on our main website. We would cut Trident, some military and some roads but this money would be spent on other priorities. Broadly we would keep government spending stable at around 46% of GDP.
