NotesNews: Tony Blair was accused of telling "bare-faced despicable lies" yesterday as the general election campaign degenerated to a level of bitterness and abuse rarely seen in British politics. Stung by claims that the Tories intended to abolish the state pension, the Prime Minister last night led a barrage of attacks against Blair. Major said that the Labour leadership were "plain liars". Blair dismissed the assault as the act of "desperate people resorting to desperate measures". They claim their attack had "struck a massive nerve" and decided to change their campaign plans for today to keep the spotlight on pensions.
