    Liberal Democrat Leader Nick Clegg will issue a stark warning that BLUKIP, an alliance of right wing Tories, UKIP, and the DUP, could hold the balance of power after the election.

    Fears have already been raised about the prospect of a Labour-SNP coalition that would threaten our economic stability with excessive borrowing and put the future of the United Kingdom in the balance.

    The Liberal Democrat manifesto puts opportunity at its heart and sets out a plan to ensure every child has a world-class education.

    The party has announced a major new commitment to protect education funding for every child.

    This means protecting education spending per pupil in real terms over the next parliament, increasing the education budget as a whole.

    The Conservatives may have published their manifesto, but that doesn't mean they've told people what they're planning to do.

    In fact they've repeatedly refused to say where cuts will come from, including £12bn cuts to welfare, leaving many people uncertain about how badly they will be affected.

    All we know is their ideological obsession with cutting the size of the state will hit working families the hardest.

    Nick Clegg has urged Labour to come clean about their plans to tackle the deficit, challenging Ed Miliband and Ed Balls to 'name the date' they will balance the books.

    It comes a day after the Liberal Democrats set out - in unprecedented detail - how they will get to grips with the current budget deficit and pay for their spending commitments.

    The Liberal Democrat plan to balance the books is one with a "heart as well as a brain."

    Nick Clegg will spell out in detail how the Liberal Democrats will deal with the country's deficit by setting out who is going to be asked to contribute more and where cuts will fall.

    Ahead of the party's manifesto launch on Wednesday, Nick will present a challenge to Labour and the Conservatives to match the Liberal Democrat commitment to be open and honest with the British public about what is necessary to deal with the deficit fairly by 2017/18.

    As the Conservatives announce yet another unfunded spending commitment in this election campaign, on thing has become crystal clear: the Tories are trying to pull the wool over people's eyes when it comes to funding public services.

    The latest so-called "commitment" to give extra funding to the NHS has been widely criticised as the Conservatives simply won't spell out how they are going to pay for it. As Nick Clegg said, "the NHS doesn't need warm words, it needs hard cash".
