Countdown to Britain's Election
You gotta love England - where the Prime Minister can announce that an election will happen in one month. At least that way the media doesn't go crazy for almost a year like we have here. Even though almost everyone suspected even the exact date of the elections (May 5), the media can't get too excited until it's official.

So Great Britain will choose on 5/5 whether to return Labour for an unprecedented 3rd term, or turn right to the Tories. Labour has been hurt by Blair's alliance with Bush in Iraq, and those who vote on that issue will go Liberal Democrat. In the multi-party system of England, that reduces Labour's hold and could end up turning the majority to the Tories, exactly what Liberal Dems would not want.

I think Blair and co. will hold on, but barely.
