Shadow Chancellor Ed Balls has said that the coalition government's economic plan needs to change course before more "long-term damage" is done.
In his article in the Sunday Mirror, he wrote:
No matter how bad things get, David Cameron, George Osborne and Nick Clegg are desperate to cling on to their failing economic plan - putting their political pride above the long-term interests of the country.
But the country cannot afford to wait until the next election before we get a change of course. Because the longer ministers refuse to act, the more long-term damage will be done to our economy.
That's why I want to work with other parties - including sensible people in the Government - on a new economic plan. In his heart of hearts... Vince Cable must know that Plan A is not working.
