Cameron: join me and run country

Andrew Porte in London

David Cameron will urge people to join him to "play a part" in reversing the country's fortunes in the wake of the economic crisis and the MPs' expenses scandal when he launches the Conservative manifesto today.

The Tory leader will issue invitations to voters to "join the government of Britain".

He will allow people to be "your own boss, sack your MP, run your own school, own your own home, veto council tax rises, vote for your police, save your local pub or post office, and see how government spends your money".

The manifesto will be a "detailed blueprint", according to party sources.

The Tory document will include key tax policies, including a pledge to reverse most of the Government's planned National Insurance rise -- an issue that has dominated the election campaign.

It will also outline plans for a £150-a-year tax break for four million married couples. (© Daily Telegraph, London)
