Cameron shifts tack as election campaign fails to shift dial

April 24, 2015 |

British Prime Minister David Cameron looks on during an event in LincolnBy Andrew Osborn LONDON (Reuters) – British Prime Minister David Cameron's advisers thought his economic record would have delivered a solid poll lead by now. The absence of a breakthrough coupled with a stronger than expected performance from Ed Miliband, the leader of the opposition Labour Party, is dampening the mood in Cameron's centre-right Conservative Party. The campaign has been almost genteel." The election, which could determine Britain's place in the European Union and Scotland's future in the United Kingdom, is the closest since the 1970s with the two main parties unable to open up a clear lead. The SNP is threatening to all but wipe out Labour in Scotland, while UKIP is likely to steal large numbers of Conservative voters in England, making it harder for Cameron to beat Labour in areas where Miliband's party is narrowly behind.

The ECB could launch a government bond-buying program with new money as soon as its Jan. 22 meeting, although Greek elections three days later are a complication. With markets in an unusually febrile state – oil and copper have plunged while the Swiss franc rocketed after Switzerland abandoned its currency cap – it's a fair bet that if the ECB holds back, there will be an extreme reaction. The euro zone's central bank would have no problem justifying action.
