With a general election just weeks away, Prime Minister Gordon Brown will join us for a Thomson Reuters Newsmaker on Wednesday March 10, during which he will give a speech on the UK economy. The latest opinion polls indicate Britain is heading for a hung parliament after an election expected on May 6. A YouGov poll for the Sun newspaper puts David Cameron’s Conservatives five points ahead of Brown’s Labour Party with 39 percent of the vote, a result which could leave Labour as the largest party in parliament but short of an overall majority.
