Prime Minister: We are building an aspiration nation

David Cameron has come to the central theme of his speech - that of building an "aspiration nation".

Spelling out the difference between the Conservatives and Labour, he said they "want the little people to stay little".

He also invoked Winston Churchill: "We are for the ladder, let all try their best to climb".
