Britons Thursday voted in what is
billed as the most tightly-contested general election since
the World War II which could lead to a hung Parliament, though
latest opinion polls gave a clear edge to opposition Tories
over the ruling Labour as well as Liberal Democrats.
Liberal Democrat leader Nick Clegg appealed on Saturday for an overhaul of British politics, saying he wanted changes to an electoral system that has kept the country`s Labour and Conservative parties in power for generations.
Britain`s ruling Labour party on Saturday
seemed to be heading for its worst election defeat in 92 years
as the prime minister admitted that he has paid a very "heavy
price" for his `bigoted` outburst against an elderly widow,
even as two top newspapers withdrew their support to him.
British Prime Minister Gordon Brown sought to overcome a major gaffe by trumpeting his economic record in a final TV election debate, but polls suggested he was soundly beaten by main rival David Cameron.
