Brown Out, Conservative David Cameron New Prime Minister
May 11, 2010
(ChattahBox)–They don’t waste any time across the pond. While now-former Prime Minister of Britain Gordon Brown, is still packing his knickers and grabbing a few souvenirs on his way out of 10 Downing street, the new Prime Minister, Conservative David Cameron is at the front door, ready to take over the reins.
After coalition talks broke down between Gordon Brown’s Labour Party and Nick Clegg’s Liberal Democratic Party, Brown was forced to immediately resign. Conservative leader of the Tories, David Cameron apparently negotiated some sort of coalition deal with the Liberals. And he was invited to Buckingham Palace by the Queen to form a new government.
Although Cameron received the most votes in the general election, he failed to secure a majority.
Brown delivered an emotional speech with his wife Sarah at his side, as he resigned from office, saying it was “a privilege to serve.”
After his audience with the Queen, Cameron traveled to 10 Downing Street, where he delivered a brief speech, promising to trim the looming deficit, while still providing a social safety net for the poor and elderly.
