‘Underdog’ British PM ready for election fight
London: British Prime Minister Gordon Brown on Sunday admitted that he was the underdog in this year`s general election but pledged he would "not stop fighting" to win the poll.
The day after Conservative main opposition leader David Cameron drew out his battle themes for the election, Brown said the vote, to be held by June at the latest, would be the "decision of the decade" for Britain.
Brown set out his case why voters should plump for him and his centre-left Labour Party to lead Britain out of recession.
Cameron`s centre-right Tories have consistently been ahead in opinion polls for more than a year.
"When you`re behind in the polls you`ve got to regard yourselves as the fighter. Everything I`ve ever won in my life, I`ve had to fight for," Brown told BBC television.
He described himself as "someone who is ready to fight for every aspect of Britain`s future and will not stop fighting”.
"We, the Labour Party, will fight every inch of the way," he vowed.
A new survey for The Daily Telegraph newspaper put the Conservatives on 40 percent, Labour on 30 percent and the third party centre-left Liberal Democrats on 17 percent. The pollsters YouGov questioned 1,848 adults on Tuesday and Wednesday.
