On the third day of the campaign, the war over National Insurance continued, over the last two days the Tories had shed Labour blood on the issue, but today Labour took out out one of the Tory' limbs.
Although for most of the British public, this tax war was all overshadowed by the greatest British actors of his generation, Sir Michael Caine. He came out and backed the Tories on its social agenda, but he turned out to be a bit of a clanger for them to.
The Prime Minister began the day with an interview with the audacious John Humphreys on the Today programme. On it he defended his economic record and said regarding his future that "I will be standing the full five years."
Mr Brown then joined the Lord Mandelson and Alastair Darling for Labour first press conference, where they launched a spectacular attack on Tory economic policy, calling it a "myth". Mr Brown was questioned on his wife's involvement in the political campaign, Gordon felt moved to tell the nation that Sarah Brown is "the love of my life". "We work well together, we work for and run the country together," he said. Lord Mandelson remarked: "Isn't that nice."
