Christine Lagarde has asked whether she needs to grovel on her knees before George Osborne over the IMF's incorrect warnings on the UK economy, as she warned against raising taxes.

"Do I have to go on my knees?" Ms Lagarde, the head of the International Monetary Fund said, when asked whether she has apologised to George Osborne over the fund's low growth forecasts and calls to adopt a 'Plan B' of less austerity – calls the body now accept it got wrong.
