With just two days to go before the general election approaches, the main party leaders have begun a two-day tour around the UK for undecided voters.
Both David Cameron and Ed Miliband plan to travel to marginal constituencies in their last attempt to win over the nation, in what is proving to be the most unpredictable political race this generation has seen.
Conservative leader David Cameron has appeared with Boris Johnson in London; Ed Miliband has targeted seats in the South of England, whilst Nick Clegg has started a ‘two day dash,’ from Land’s End to John O’Groats.
Polls still do not state that the two biggest parties will be on track for a majority, which suggests the post-election period will be taken up with talks about coalitions or other types of Westminster deals.
The Prime Minister has repeatedly said that “just 23 seats” are needed for a majority, and the Conservative party are desperate to win over votes from constituents who are considering siding with the Lib Dems, or Nigel Farage’s party.
Iain Duncan Smith, who is the party’s work and pension secretary, has argued that only the Conservatives would deliver the EU referendum that many UKIP supporters want. He has also said to those who are backing UKIP: “I would simply appeal to them and say, honestly this is a risk that is no longer a protest, but like a suicide note”.
Meanwhile, Ed Miliband is concentrating on the NHS, which is an area where he believes his party will do more, and be more popular than the Tories. He has said that only a Labour government could save the health service, as the NHS is facing a “financial bombshell”.
Meanwhile David Cameron has said that the NHS made “real progress” during the past five years, and that his party is committed to providing the money that hospitals need in order to help patients. He said: “the key thing for the future is to make sure we have the strong economy that can support the strong NHS”.
