LONDON - APRIL 23: David Cameron, leader of the Conservative party, (2nd R) and Mayor of London Boris Johnson, (2nd L) meet men dressed as English knights during St George's day celebrations, at Leadenhall Market April 23, 2010 in London. Cameron took part in the second of three live TV leader's debates last night where Prime Minister Gordon Brown claimed that the Tories would cut benefits for the elderly. The General Election, to be held on May 6, 2010, is set to be one of the most closely fought political contests in recent times with all main party leaders embarking on a four week campaign to win the votes of the United Kingdom electorate.
