David Cameron has welcomed the official announcement of the General Election date
The election is a choice between five more years of Gordon Brown's tired government making things worse - or change with the Conservatives, who have the energy, leadership and values to get Britain moving again.
Speaking to supporters this morning, David Cameron will say that the Consevatives are "fighting this election for the great ignored".
"Young, old, rich, poor, black, white, gay, straight. They start our businesses, operate our factories, teach our children, clean our streets, grow our food, keep us safe. They work hard, pay their taxes, obey the law", he will say.
"They’re good, decent people – they’re the people of Britain and they just want a reason to believe that anything is still possible in Britain."
"This election is about giving them that reason, giving them that hope".
