PM: No deals and pacts ahead of 2015

The Prime Minister does not want to "see deals or pacts" ahead of the 2015 General Election and instead hopes a robust Conservative Party will be re-elected to Government.

Speaking to Daybreak, David Cameron wanted to see "a strong Conservative Government with a clear mandate":

The Conservative Party conference has been dogged by rumours of an alliance with Ukip in an attempt to boost their chances of winning seats.

While Mr Cameron did not openly support an agreement with Nigel Farage's party, he did encourage Ukip voters to back Conservative candidates in their area "because that is the only way you can be guaranteed an in-out referendum on Europe".
