Living standards for the people of Bedford will be better if Labour are voted in at the next election according to Shadow Chancellor Ed Balls.
The MP gave a speech at the Kings Arms Project in Bedford on Wednesday to convince voters in the marginal constituency why they should choose Labour in 2015.
Mr Balls promised to balance the country's vooks, freeze energy bills, and introduce a 10p starting rate of tax.
He said, 'A new analysis today from the House of Commons Library shows under David Cameron working people will have seen the biggest fall in wages in any parliament since 1874. It's a pretty dismal record'.
Mr Balls also promised to scrap the government's so-called bedroom tax and protect the NHS from privatisation.
He said, 'It is utterly shocking. It was supposed to push people to move to smaller properties but all it has done is to make vulnerable people worse off'.
