Cllr Ann Holtom has responded to the recent announcements made by Labour leader Ed Miliband and Shadow Chancellor Ed Balls in which they have reversed Labour's stance on the economy. In a statement, Cllr Holtom said: "Gordon Brown and the last Labour government left Britain's finances in ruins. But that hasn't stopped Labour from opposing every measure needed to clean up their mess. They have fought election after election, including last year's Council election in Tyburn, by telling voters there's an easy way out, their so-called Plan B. Now Miliband and Balls have admitted they accept the cuts and won't reverse them. They have even called for public sector workers to take pay cuts. Labour MPs and union leaders don't know what to think. Everyone has been conned by Labour."
