David Cameron made a pretty dodgy slip of the tongue on the trail today

Tell us how you really feel David.

TORY LEADER DAVID Cameron may have made a bit of Freudian slip while campaigning today.

A week before the UK goes to the polls, the prime minister was talking to Asda employees at the retailer’s headquarters in Leeds.

Speaking about the SNP’s possible entrance into government alongside Labour, Cameron mixed up “career” and “country”:

“This is a real career-defining … country-defining election that we face in less than a week’s time.”

It’s not the first slip Cameron has made in the past week. Last Saturday, he appeared to forget which football team he supported and at one point he also gave the date of the election as 9 May instead of the correct date of 7 May.

Last night, the leaders of the three largest parties in Westminster all appeared  for the final organised TV discussion before the election.

Cameron, Ed Milliband and Nick Clegg all answered questions from an audience on BBC’s Question Time.

Perhaps most significant moment of the night was Labour leader Milliband ruling out a formal colition with the Scottish National Party.

“Let me be plain. We’re not going to do a deal with the Scottish National Party, we’re not going to have a coalition, we’re not going to have a deal.”

Analysis of poll figures from Scotland this week suggested that the SNP could win every seat off north of the border, making them the third largest party in the House of Commons.
