Following criticism of the negative tone of the Conservative campaign early in the election battle, David Cameron was positive and upbeat as he delivered his party's manifesto pledges, praising the UK's "buccaneering" attitude.

He warned against Britain being "a debt-addicted, welfare-burdened, steadily-declining, once-great nation".

The next five years are about turning the good news in our economy into a good life for you and your family.

...This buccaneering, world-beating, can-do country - we can do it all over again."

– David Cameron
