Spotlight turns on Brown’s two henchmen

Ed Miliband was today flanked by his new Shadow Chancellor in Prime Minister’s Questions, giving Cameron ample opportunity to test out the Government’s remixed attack of tying the two Ed’s to their Brown past, and his disastrous economic legacy.

Perhaps it was Miliband’s fault. His fast question asked who was to blame for the bad GDP figures, which instigated much pointing at Ed Balls and cries of ‘you’ from the coalition. Time and time again though the Prime Minister mentioned the Eds and their previous job. He is painting them as ‘Brown’s two henchmen in the Treasury,’ directly responsible for the deficit that the Government inherited, and the subsequent cuts it has caused.

The Brown mud might just stick.
