David Cameron or Ed Miliband? The dilemma is still there, even a few days before the elections. Three weeks from the elections for the renewal of the House of Commons, scheduled for May 7, the tie between the outgoing premier Conservative leader and Labor Party candidate is still on, in fact, according to recent polls, the Labour party candidate is supposed to lead by one percentage point over Cameroun. From the poll projections by YouGov for the Sun, it has emerged that 35%percent of the people are in favour of the party of Miliband while David Cameron’s tories only stand at 34%. The anti-Europeans of Ukip are firm at 13%. The Conservatives are in danger of not seeing reconfirmed their government with David Cameron at the lead, despite successes on the economic front and unemployment rate which dropped to 5.6 percent.
Cameron, during the election campaign, is playing his cards on several issues: the European Union, immigration, the categories in world of work Concerning the EU, he is inflexible on the expansion of continental solidarity, and rejects requests for new aid to the Greek government, ” going on to say that the last word on Europe will be given to the voters in a referendum. In addition, since aid was given to the poor, pensioners and enterprises, he has decided to conquer the commuter’s vote, promising to freeze train-fees for the next five years. He has made many other promises insisting that should the left win, the fees would surely increase, bringing on criticisms accusing him of propaganda.
Surely even the establishment of new political parties such as Ukip, led by the eccentric Nigel Farage, has thrown the election race into a cloud of uncertainty between the two main parties. UKIP radical populism seems to have it all to attract many conservative voters: the greater the number of those who allow themselves to be convinced by the promises of Farage, the smaller the ciance are for David Cameron of staying at number 10 Downing Street.
Miliband’s campaign instead focuses rather more on a social-democratic line and is less tied to the world of finance. The labourers insist on existing excessive inequality in the country and therefore the need to negotiate the austerity measures introduced by Cameron again. Here too, someone seems to want to put a spoke in the wheels: Nicola Sturgeon, Scottish Prime Minister and leader of the Scottish National Party, who is runner up to Miliband, taking 50 colleges out of 59 in Scotland: a real blood-spill of votes for the Labour party that would otherwise be favoured for the final victory.
