Minister for Mendacity

Ed Balls has had a go at Fraser Nelson for calling him a liar in one of his coffeehouse blog posts. Fraser has rightly pointed out that if Ed doesn't want to be called a liar then he should tell the truth and has backed up his position with facts and also illustrated why the old politics of deception no longer work due to the blogosphere. Keep it up Fraser. Fraser has promised he will subject a future Tory government to the same scrutiny. Good, though I think it's fair to comment that Dave is already aware that you can't get away with fudging figures these days when you've hundreds of bloggers ready to factcheck quicker than you can say google. That is why the likes of Balls and Brown are finished.
