Election at-a-glance: 25 April
All you need to know about Day 21 of the UK's 2005 general election campaign, at-a-glance:

25 APRIL IN A SENTENCE

The Liberal Democrats call for a full public inquiry into the Iraq war while both Labour and the Conservatives focus on the economy.

CAMPAIGN CATCH-UP

Charles Kennedy puts the Iraq war at the heart of the Liberal Democrats' election campaign, calling for a full public inquiry into the conflict.

Gordon Brown says Mrs Thatcher would be appalled by the current Conservative economic policies.

The Conservatives publish their manifesto for businesses, including offering more support to entrepreneurs.

Veteran former Labour MP Brian Sedgemore defects to the Liberal Democrats, leader Charles Kennedy announces.

The BBC rejects Conservative complaints about a programme in which hecklers were encouraged to shout at Michael Howard during a public meeting.

A re-elected Labour government would put nuclear power back on the agenda in an effort to meet targets on climate change.

Labour and the Conservatives unveil new election slogans as they enter the final full week of campaigning.

The Conservatives may be down 2-0 at half time but can go on to win the general election, Michael Howard insists.

PICK OF THE ANALYSIS

Tony Blair must have long ago abandoned any hope that he could draw a line under his decision to go to war on Iraq. He will also have known with absolute certainty that it would come back to harry him during the election campaign.
