Tories stand by Miliband attack

The Conservatives are standing by an attack on Ed Miliband that Labour said had dragged politics “into the gutter”.

Defence Secretary Michael Fallon said Mr Miliband had “stabbed his own brother in the back” to lead Labour and was now “willing to stab the UK in the back” by doing a deal on Trident with the SNP “to become PM”.

Mr Miliband said the defence secretary had demeaned himself and his office.

But Prime Minister David Cameron said Mr Fallon was “absolutely right”.

In other election news:

  • Labour pledged teenagers would be guaranteed face-to-face individual careers advice if the party is in government
  • SNP leader Nicola Sturgeon said her party would only press for another independence referendum if something material changed
  • A Plaid Cymru candidate at the centre of a Nazi slur row admitted he has had a “baptism of fire”
  • UKIP admitted it was “lagging” behind with women voters and that the party sometimes resembles a “rugby club on tour”

“This is the day the election campaign got personal”, said BBC deputy political editor James Landale.

“The Conservatives believe that focusing on Ed Miliband’s character and a potential Labour-SNP deal will win them votes in England.

“But Labour reckon that playing politics with decisions taken about national defence will backfire and ultimately cost the Tories votes.”
