David Cameron will appeal to voters to keep the UK in the “safe hands” of the Tories in response to a range of threats facing the country.

Mr Cameron will say the British people should be “proud” of their response to the “Great Recession” and tell them the future of the country is now in their hands.

In an attempt to persuade the electorate that it is not the time to change leadership, Mr Cameron will highlight the continued uncertainty in Europe, Russian “aggression” and the threat posed by Islamic State.

In an effort to move on from the row over his refusal to take part in the TV debates proposed by broadcasters, he will focus on the way his administration has responded to “uncertain times” and will say the electorate must decide “whose hands are on the steering wheel” after May 7.

Mr Cameron will appeal to voters to let him “keep on seeing this through until the job is done”, saying they face a direct choice between him and Ed Miliband over who is in Number 10.

In a speech in London he will say that he can look around the Cabinet table and “put my hand on my heart and say: Britain is in safe hands”.

“A t a time when Russian aggression is mounting in the East, and Ukraine is being torn apart, we’re in safe hands.

“At a time when we’ve got jihadists waging brutal war in Iraq and terrorists plot to hurt us here at home, we’re in safe hands.

“At a time when our economy could be knocked sideways by a Greek exit from the eurozone – we’re in safe hands.”

“In uncertain times, we are in safe hands.”

He will say the electorate faces a “massive, generation-defining choice” at the election.

” You will decide who’s in charge. Who represents us.

“Who fights for a better deal round the table in Brussels. Who goes into vital talks on Russia and Ukraine.

“Who takes long-term decisions about the future of our economy. Who makes the calls to keep us safe from Islamist extremism.

“You will decide whose hands are on the steering wheel. It can only be me as prime minister – or Ed Miliband as prime minister.

“That is up to you. The country is in your hands.”

He will add: “I would say to everyone in our country: look how far we’ve come, be proud of how far we’ve come.

“But let’s keep on seeing this through until the job is done.”
