Commenting on Shadow Chancellor Ed Balls' recent visit to Warrington, David Mowat said:
"Ed Balls should be apologising to the people of Warrington for the fact that a third of the taxes they will pay this year will go towards paying the interest on debts that he and Gordon Brown ran up. In 1970, when he was three years old, every person was born with £600 of debt, today it is £37,000. He and Ed Miliband have irresponsibly opposed every single measure the Government has taken to deal with our crippling deficit; now he comes here waving the blank piece of paper that is the Labour recovery plan to tell us: "Vote for us and we'll do it all over again.
"I spent 30 years in business and I know that every penny that is wasted means higher prices and lower profits. The same principle applies in the public sector: money wasted on bureaucrats is money we can't spend on teachers, on policemen and on doctors. If Ed Balls had ever had a proper job he'd know that too. To try and claim that cutting waste will drive the country back in to recession is complete and utter rubbish."
