Wake up. Go vote!!
Voice of America: British Prime Minister Tony Blair Tuesday has called the parliamentary election for May 5. The anticipated announcement starts a four-week campaign to inspire the increasingly apathetic British voting public. The date of the election in one month came as no surprise, but it was not official until the Prime Minister met with the Queen.
Tony Blair then broke the news outside of his official London residence at 10 Downing Street. "I have just been to Buckingham Palace to ask the Queen to dissolve parliament, which she has graciously consented to do. And, there will now be a general election in Britain on May the 5," said Mr. Blair.
