Gordon Brown calls himself underdog in 3-way race
London: British Prime Minister Gordon Brown
says his Labour Party, which has ruled the country for 13
years, is the underdog in a three-way race for the UK
Labour holds 345 seats in Parliament and the party could
still cling to power even if it is handed a humiliating
third-place finish in the popular vote Thursday.
But Brown told The Observer newspaper that his party was
the one facing the longest odds.
The interview published today came as The Observer threw
its support behind the insurgent Liberal Democrats, who have
shot to the top of the polls on the back of Britain`s
first-ever US-style televised debates.
It is the latest newspaper endorsement to go to Brown`s
rivals in what has been an especially difficult campaign for
the prime minister.
