Cameron: We don't always agree

We are different parties, the Conservative Party and the Liberal Democrat party, and we don't always agree.

But I would argue in the last two years, the Government has done a lot of things that needed to be done. We have cut the deficit, we have made difficult decisions about cutting some areas of public spending, about having to increase some taxes, because we inherited a situation where our budget deficit was bigger than that in Greece.

Although we might have had different views, we put them aside, we cut the deficit for the good of the economy.

– David Cameron
