Ed Balls 'daunted' by chancellor task - but the BBC will do their best to ensure that Ed Balls is in that position

The BBC report that:
'Ed Balls has told me that he is "daunted" at the prospect of becoming Chancellor of the Exchequer, given the scale of cuts a future Labour government may have to make.'
There follows a list of the key points that were discussed, unsurprisingly the matter of the last Labour government's overspending from 2003 not 2008 as Ed Balls and other Labour ministers have decided to claim was the case.

Here are the facts, I wonder if the BBC's Nick Robinson is aware of them, or does he prefer to take Ed Balls line?

Maybe the British public aren't as stupid as the BBC would like them to be as the latest IPSOS MORI poll finds Osborne leading Balls as the " most capable potential chancellor" by 38 to 33. Personally I'm staggered it's that small a margin...
