Topic: United Kingdom votes in most unpredictable election in decades

By Guy Faulconbridge and Andrew Osborn LONDON (Reuters) - British voters get to decide on Thursday who they want to rule the world's fifth-largest economy in a tight election that could yield weak government, propel the United Kingdom towards a vote on EU membership and stoke Scottish desire for secession. Prime Minister David Cameron's Conservatives and Ed Miliband's opposition Labour Party have been neck and neck in opinion polls for months, indicating neither will win enough seats for an outright majority in the 650-seat parliament. "It is going to go down to the wire." Cameron said only his Conservatives could deliver strong, stable government: "All other options will end in chaos." The Conservatives portray themselves as the party of jobs and economic recovery, promising to reduce income tax for 30 million people while forcing through further spending cuts to eliminate a budget deficit still running at 5 percent of gross domestic product.
