The day has been dominated by manifesto launches, with David Cameron offering to help voters secure a 'good life'. We're signing off for the day but we’ll be back with more manifestos - the Liberal Democrats and UKIP - from 6am tomorrow. In the meantime, here’s a recap of the day:
- Launching the Conservative Party manifesto , David Cameron said the Conservatives were the party of "working people"
- Mr Cameron unveiled new policies on childcare, the right-to-buy and income tax
- The other parties spent the day attacking the Tories’ pitch to voters. Nigel Farage said the Conservatives were “aping UKIP”; the Lib Dems said the Tories’ lack of detailed plans for cuts was “extraordinary”; and Labour insisted Mr Cameron's party wouldn’t stand up for working people
- The Green Party launched its manifesto with party leader Natalie Bennett calling on voters to join a “peaceful revolution” as she laid out plans to end austerity politics
- The Scottish Labour leader Jim Murphy clashed with the SNP leader Nicola Sturgeon on austerity politics – and faced veiled criticism from his colleagues in London too.
