The other day I picked out an example of Labour's miserablism:
"Ed Balls' apparent enthusiasm when the economic data is poor, and his deflation when the figures improve"
It's a sad fact that Balls can barely contain his desire for things to go wrong in the economy so that he can promote himself on the back of a crisis.
Given the howls that suggestion generates from some quarters, I now owe a debt of gratitude to the Shadow Chancellor himself for proving the point.
