LONDON - Most Britons think the government has done a bad job with the economy since it was elected in May last year but few think opposition Labour's Ed Miliband and Ed Balls would do better, according to a Reuters/Ipsos MORI poll on Thursday.

The poll found 55 percent of respondents think David Cameron's Conservative-led coalition government has done a bad job of managing the economy while 36 percent feel it has done well.

Over three-quarters, 77 percent, said the government had done badly in keeping unemployment down and just 15 percent said it had done a good job. Britain's unemployment rate rose to 8.1 percent in the three months to August, its highest level in 15 years.
