Labour at War: Mandy Wants Meaty Balls.

Red Ed and his team are meeting in Birmingham today but things haven't gone as planned so far.

tbg can this morning confirm that Shadow Chancellor Ed Balls has again come under fire, this time it's from Lord Mandelson.

The former Business Secretary says that Balls' attacks on George Osborne are now becoming all too "predictable" and "tiring to the public".

He goes on to say that Balls' arguments about the depth and speed of cuts are "out of date".

He says Balls and Labour need to focus on how to rebuild the economy, maximising appeal, and extending prosperity and social justice.

Mr Balls has refused to comment.
