Cameron and Brown hit the campaign trail

David Cameron's UK general election campaign began with a rude awakening.
On Easter Sunday, his four-year-old son Elwyn kicked him in the head and pleaded with him not to make "any more boring speeches". Mr Cameron now sports a cut across his nose which will serve as a reminder of his son's warning.
However, his son may be sorely disappointed. Within 48 hours of the incident the Conservative leader was recounting the story in a speech to Tory staff before beginning a relentless tour of marginal constituencies.
