Brown bids to form coalition government


With a hung parliament looking the most likely outcome, Britain’s Prime Minister was happy to hold on to his own seat and suggested he would try to form a coalition government.

“My duty to the country coming out of this election is to play my part in Britain having a stong, stable and principled government able to lead Britian into sustained economic recovery,and able to implement our commitments to far reaching reform to our political system upon which there is a growing concensus in our country,” Gordon Brown said as he was re-elected in Kirkcaldy, Scotland.

If Brown fails to form a coalition, he is more likely to be a local MP rather than Labour leader.
