David Cameron has accused Ed Miliband of a "con trick", claiming the Labour leader is deliberately misleading voters about the potential role of the SNP in the next parliament.

"Basically what he’s doing is a con trick. You can see what he’s doing: ‘Look at this strong language about no deals and no pacts, and ignore the fact that I can only become prime minister off the back of SNP votes'," Mr Cameron told reporters. 

Mr Miliband yesterday appeared to admit he might not win an overall majority by setting out a 'red line' over abolishing 'non-dom' status.
