THE Conservatives have launched their manifesto for the general election.
Speaking at Battersea Power Station this morning, party leader David Cameron said government should be the "partner of the big society, not its boss".
The Conservative programme includes giving parents the right to save schools from closure and allowing voters to sack corrupt MPs.
The Tories also want to scrap ID cards, reduce the number of MPs by 10% and raise the stamp duty threshold for first-time buyers to £250,000.
Mr Cameron said: "We stand for society, that's the right idea for a better future."
But Labour accused the Conservatives of leaving people "on their own" while the Lib Dems said the Tory manifesto was "style over substance".
