It is “make your mind up” time for undecided voters in the UK election. They have until Thursday to opt for a change of government or continue with Labour. Polls indicate Prime Minister Tony Blair’s party will be returned to power but with a reduced majority. On the last leg of campaigning, Blair has returned to familiar themes.
“Who is best for the future of the economy: Labour or the Conservatives? Who is best for your mortgage: Labour or the Conservatives? Who is best to continue investment in the National Health Service and schools: Labour or the Conservatives?” he asked at one event.
The main opposition Conservatives, led by Michael Howard, have been targeting key marginal constituencies, which they believe they can snatch from Labour.
The third largest party, the Liberal Democrats, appear in line for their strongest showing in decades. In some seats, votes for the Lib Dems, and a low turnout, could cost Labour dearly.
