Be afraid, be very afraid – Ed Balls as Chancellor and Labour with Ed Miliband in coalition with the SNP, a recipe for disaster if ever there was one.

Mr Balls recently made a speech full of prophecies of doom if the Conservatives won the election. They would make stinging cuts which would be a disaster.

However, it only highlighted the intellectual bankruptcy of Labour’s plans. By scaremongering, he thinks it will help him win a few votes but this only shows contempt for the voters.

Remember, this is the man who advised Gordon Brown. In 2000, public spending was 35% of GDP, Gordon Brown then went on a spending spree and by 2004, public spending was at 40% of GDP and the rot set in.

They spent as if there would be no tomorrow and we were led into the worst recession since the 1930s and we are still suffering the consequences.

The worst cuts come when spendthrift Left-wing parties fail to control public spending.

There is also a growing fear that if there is a hung parliament, the SNP could end up ruling the rest of the UK in a coalition with Miliband.

The SNP want to break up the UK and they would want to spend our money like it is going out of fashion. There is a simple way to avoid all this – don’t vote Labour
