Autumn Statement: Ed Balls' 'I'm a Celebrity...Get Him Out of Here' pun

The government's "economic credibility is in tatters" following the Autumn Statement, Shadow Chancellor Ed Balls has said.

In response to the chancellor's Autumn Statement speech Mr Balls derided the government's progress, and made reference to the MP Nadine Dorries, who had the Conservative whip withdrawn after appearing in "I'm a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here."

He added: "Not snakes and spiders in the jungle, but their fiscal rule broken, economic credibility in tatters and exposed now as incompetent and unfair."
