In an attack on Labour’s economic record, the Mayor said:
“They made a huge mistake in putting all their political chips on the square marked ‘economic gloom, failure’ – their entire pitch to the people is that things are going to get worse. So the minute people’s confidence starts to return, they’ll say to Balls and to Miliband ‘you were the guys who crashed the car, we seem to have got out of the ditch... why on earth would we give the keys back to you?’.”
