'Real alternative' Lib Dems launch manifesto

Liberal Democrat leader Charles Kennedy today returns to the General Election fray, after a brief paternity leave, to launch his party's manifesto for the May 5 poll.
The document, publication of which was postponed on Tuesday following the birth of Kennedy's son Donald, will present the Lib Dems as the 'real alternative' to an 'authoritarian' Labour Party and 'insular and narrow-minded' Conservatives.

Mr Kennedy will say that his party's plans to provide free personal care for the elderly, abolish university tuition fees and scrap the council tax will deliver 'dignity for older people, real opportunity

for our children and a fair deal for families.'
