It still feels a bit like the calm before the storm in Westminster. But you can expect a particularly lively clash between the party leaders at Prime Minister’s Questions today, the last animated exchange in the Commons before the general election on 6 May.
David Cameron is likely to touch on the National Insurance rise, which the Tories claim is a “tax on jobs” that could be avoided by “efficiency savings”, a position that Alan Johnson, the plain-speaking Home Secretary, has just called “the oldest trick in the political book”.
But Gordon Brown will also be expecting Cameron to produce one of his broader, more vicious attacks. The PM must know this represents an important opportunity for a “clunking fist” attack on what he sees as Cameron’s unchanged Tories.
You can catch up with the action in this space after 12.30pm. And then follow our coverage of the even more crucial television debates, which begin next week.
