SHADOW chancellor Ed Balls dropped into Chadwell St Mary on Friday afternoon to bolster the Labour campaign for the May elections.
Mr Balls visited the Alf Lowen centre to spend some time with service users. Mr Balls even had time for a few rounds of bingo. Flanked by prospective parliamentary candidate, Polly Billington, we did see the shadow chancellor get the numbers right and win a full house.
After wards, YT spent a little time with Mr Balls to get his view of the campaign, the recent budget and whether, in the 20th anniversary of the 1992 general election, whether Miliband and Balls face the same “credible alternative” problems as Neil Kinnock and John Smith.
