Come off it Cameron: You're not fooling anyone

Today, David Cameron praised the Liberal Democrats' flagship policy of cutting income tax for working people - but tried to claim it as his own.

Cameron stated that the rise in the tax-free allowance is among his proudest achievements. The allowance will rise to £10,000 this Sunday, giving more than 26 million people a £700 tax cut since 2010. This was the top policy on the Liberal Democrat manifesto and we have fought to deliver it in every Budget and Autumn Statement since 2010.

Cameron claims to be a fan but he opposed this idea in 2010, when his top tax priority was an inheritance tax cut for millionaires, saying that it was not 'affordable'.

Remember what happened last time David Cameron debated Nick Clegg:

The Tories were even blocking our proposals for income tax cuts at the last budget (even though that's not what they said in public). Come off it Cameron, you are not fooling anyone.
