Frank from Oxfordshire asked about forming a Government of national unity to help sort Britain's finance out.
David Cameron said that parties should work together on some issues. He said that if there is a hung Parliament then parties SHOULD be responsible, but that he thinks it would be a bad thing.
Nick Clegg said that whatever the make-up of the next Parliament, all parties should form a finance council and that there is potential for politicians to work together.
The Prime Minister said that we already have the business council on financial matters. He said that the key thing is an agreed plan to bring down Britain's national debt. He said we don't have an agreement on what needs to be done this year. Then the PM reasserted his policy in NOT cutting public spending this year.
"It's for the public to decide".
David Cameron promised that if it's a hung parliament, he'll try and make it work. He promised that if he wins an overall majority, he'll try and take other politicians with him. He said, "there is a fundimental disagreement" on the economy. He spoke of needing to rolle our sleaves up now and pay off some of Britain's debt.
He took the opportunity to differenciate the Tory policy on NI from the Libs and Labour.
