"I feel like the firefighter, hosing down the burning building, and there's Ed Miliband - the arsonist - saying 'why aren't you doing it quicker?'," Mr Cameron said at an event in Twickenham, south-west London.

Brandishing the infamous note left by Labour's Liam Byrne, Mr Cameron said "everything" at this election "comes back to the economy".

Mr Cameron was briefly interrupted by a heckler during his speech but the prime Minister said: "You need to listen to this sir, it's important - if you don't want chaos you need to get out and vote Conservative."
