Britain faces “chaos” if it changes economic course, David Cameron has warned in a stark New Year message to the country.

Supporting Labour would send the country spiralling backwards and jeopardise the recovery, the Prime Minister suggested.

In a video message, he told voters the country’s New Year’s resolution should be to “stick to the plan” to ensure future prosperity.

“With this new year comes new challenges,” Mr Cameron said.

“The global economy remains uncertain, and many countries continue to struggle.

“And against that backdrop, Britain has a choice: between the competence that has got us this far or the chaos of giving it up, going backwards and taking huge risks.

“So I say this should be our resolution: to stick to the plan, stay on course to prosperity, and keep doing the important, long-term work of securing a better future.

“2015 can promise to be a great year for our country – if we make the right choices together.”

The Prime Minister said two million new private sector jobs had been created since 2010, 24 million workers had been given tax cuts, and tens of thousands people had become home-owners as a result of the Help To Buy scheme.

“None of this happened out of thin air,” he added.

“It’s because we put in place a long-term plan with some clear values at its heart.

“Ours must be a country where if you put in, you will get out. Where if you want to work, there are decent jobs.

“Where if you put the hours in, you keep more of your own money. Where if you’re raising your children the best you can, you can expect they’ll get a proper education.

“And where if you’re willing to save, you can buy a home of your own. And of course when you retire, you will have dignity and security in old age.

“Our long-term plan is working.

“Our country is being turned around.”
