Here's a quick recap of today's political stories:
- Chancellor George Osborne appeared on the Andrew Marr Show and promised "no giveaways, no gimmicks" in Wednesday's Budget. He is expected to announce tax cuts by raising the personal allowance threshold, as well as allowing pensioners to cash in annuities
- Ed Balls, also on the Andrew Marr Show, challenged Mr Osborne to a head-to-head debate and made the chancellor shake on it live on television
- Former Lib Dem Leader Paddy Ashdown has publicly slapped down colleague Tim Farron after he criticised the party leadership's handling of the coalition. Farron later pledged allegiance to Nick Clegg
- Meanwhile Mr Clegg himself said his party was "here to stay," in a speech to the Lib Dem spring conference in Liverpool, and will defy poor poll predictions in the general election
- Elsewhere, Nigel Farage announced UKIP was prepared do a post-election deal with a potential minority Conservative government, but only if there is an EU referendum in 2015. George Osborne dismissed the idea as "nonsense"
- And finally, it was revealed that Labour's Rotherham MP Sarah Champion claimed £17 on expenses for the cost of a Remembrance Day poppy wreath.
