Fending off insurgents, main UK parties limp towards closest election in memory

LONDON (Reuters) - Britain's politicians returned on Monday from their Christmas break to launch campaigns for what could be the closest election in memory, with the rise of anti-Europeans and Scottish nationalists creating uncertainty unseen since the 1970s. Britons who have seen two parties alternate in power for generations could wake to find no fewer than five parties vying for a role in a coalition government after a May 7 election. The trend that in 2010 saw neither Prime Minister David Cameron's Conservatives nor opposition Labour win an outright majority in parliament for the first time since World War Two has intensified, with polls showing more than a third of voters now spurning the two big parties. #facebook #United States #India #Technology #Russia #United Kingdom #Election #author #european #opinion #conservatives #liberal

Britain's Cameron loses second MP to anti-EU party

In more bad news for Cameron, an opinion poll showed voters view him slightly less favourably than UKIP leader Nigel Farage, and a junior minister resigned over a story in a Sunday newspaper that he had sent sexually explicit pictures of himself to an undercover reporter #facebook #United States #Business #Brazil #Technology #Russia #Mexico #opinion #liberal

Identity politics: Why liberal is really illiberal in India

Should India be a salad bowl nation, where each community wears its identity on its sleeve, or a melting pot, where there is one common identity? Well, we don't have to choose. But the liberals have an illiberal answer, and it won't work. #InMyOpinion #Melting pot #Idea Of India #liberal #Ashutosh Varshney #Salad Bowl Nation
