Election on May 6

THE GENERAL Election will be held on May 6. The date was confirmed today by Labour Prime Minister Gordon Brown.

He said: “Today I visited Her Majesty the Queen to ask for a dissolution of Parliament and a General Election on May 6th.

“From now until polling day I will travel the length and breadth of Britain with a simple message – Britain is on the way to economic recovery and now is not the time to put it at risk. But this is going to be a different kind of election – one where we the politicians throw open the doors to grassroots activists and the wider public.

“Britain’s future success will be shaped in the next few months.
It is a time of big challenges and tough decisions.

”From the big calls on the economy – securing the recovery and creating future jobs – to tackling climate change, succeeding in Afghanistan, restoring faith in democracy and the other issues that face our country, only Labour has the credible answers.
And we’re going to prove it.”
