Remarkably, candidates in the British election agree on a time frame to cut a record deficit. But, as in the US, they're sketchy on details about deficit cuts.
David Cameron topped snap polls after last night's final debate ahead of the May 6 UK election. But he, Brown, and Clegg all stand accused of avoiding discussion of how to reduce Britain's massive deficit.
To his credit, Gordon Brown cut his teeth through left-wing activism. Nick Clegg and David Cameron were groomed as professional political managers, insulated from the people.
The final UK election debate Thursday night is supposed to focus on the economy, a strong issue for the Labour Party. But Prime Minister Gordon Brown's outburst after meeting a working-class supporter may give further boost to Conservative David Cameron and Liberal Democrat Nick Clegg.
Two of 26 suspected Hezbollah members accused of plotting attacks on tourists and shipping in the Suez Canal and of sending operatives and explosives to Gaza to help militant groups there, peer out from the prison vehicle as they arrive at the Emergency State Security Court in New Cairo, Egypt, on Wednesday. An Egyptian judge sentenced three of the accused to life in prison, and the rest of the group received sentences ranging from 15 years in prison to six months.
Ahead of the British election, embattled Labour Prime Minister Gordon Brown visited working-class Rochdale and was caught calling a life-long Labour voter a "bigot." The gaffe spotlights voter anger over welfare policies in a town with the highest concentration of the unemployed in Britain.
Tonight's British debates, setting up the British election, will focus on foreign affairs. But Labour Prime Minister Gordon Brown and Tory leader David Cameron are expected to take aim at surging rival Nick Clegg, leader of the upstart Liberal Democrats.
The UK race has gone from static to electric, says one pundit, as Liberal Democrat Nick Clegg surges after last week's debate. His sudden popularity has thrown open a race that was once seen as the Conservative Party's to lose.
Liberal Democrats' leader Nick Clegg bested Prime Minister Gordon Brown and Conservative Partly leader David Cameron in the first of three televised presidential-style debates ahead of the British election on May 6.
With the UK general election campaign in full swing, Tory leader David Cameron unveiled a Conservative Party platform Tuesday that he hopes will lead the party back to power after 13 years in opposition.
