Today: This election is a clash of two visions

Despite David Cameron’s desperate distractions, this election is not a clash of two nations – it’s a clash of two visions.

A country run for the powerful few at the top with the Tories, or a country run for all working people once again under Labour. That’s the real choice at this election.

Working families can’t afford another five years of the Tories. David Cameron has a plan for child benefit cuts that will cost over four million families over £1,000 a year.

Next week people have a chance they won’t have for other five years. A chance to vote Labour to put working families first.

Today: David Cameron is still failing to rule out cutting child benefit and tax credits again

After days of weasel words, David Cameron is still failing to rule out cutting child benefit and tax credits again.

All he has said again is he won’t abolish child benefit, but he won’t rule out cutting it or taking it away from millions of families. Everyone knows it’s impossible for the Tories to achieve their £12 billion of cuts to social security without hitting family budgets hard.

Child benefit and tax credits are now on the ballot paper next week. While Labour will protect them, the whole country now knows the Tories will cut them again
