We just can't leave that infamous tweet alone.
A source tells the NS that the party has not decided whether to match Osborne's post-2015 spending limits and says it would be "irresponsible" to do otherwise.
The centre has not shifted to the left, says Tony Blair. Labour must resist the easy option of tying itself to those forces whose anti-Tory shouts are loudest.
New figures from the party show that 643 bankers earning more than £1m a year will receive an average of £54,000 from the cut in the 50p tax rate.
Balls and Miliband will come under ever greater pressure to say whether Labour will match the coalition's post-election spending plans.
A source suggests that Ed Balls's call for a temporary cut in the basic rate was designed to pre-empt Osborne's Budget rabbit.
The Chancellor will be forced to announce that the deficit will be higher this year and that the debt won't fall until 2018.
Support for Tory economic policy falls when Osborne's name is mentioned and support for Labour policy rises when Balls is mentioned.
If the Chancellor wriggles free again, Balls’s detractors inside Labour will be howling for blood.
