Cameron brands pensions Brown’s “worst” legacy

David Cameron has branded Gordon Brown’s record on pensions his “worst legacy” and pledged not to let him forget it.

Speaking at the Conservative conference today, Cameron also called for a cut in regulations suggesting he would “start tearing up the rulebook and allow people common sense initiative and responsibility in the jobs they do”.

Speaking for over an hour without notes, Cameron urged Brown to call an Autumn election saying `”we will fight and Britain will win”.

The Prime Minister is currently deliberating about whether to call an election next week. The Comprehensive Spending Review and Pre-Budget Report are likely to take place on Monday or Tuesday if an election is called.

Cameron said: “Gordon Brown’s worst legacy is the destruction of this country’s pensions system and we won’t let him forget it.”
