LONDON - 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.

"This race is going to be the closest we have ever seen," Miliband told supporters in Pendle Sergi Roberto Jersey , in northern England, on the eve of the vote. "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.

Labour says it would cut the deficit each year, raise income tax for the highest 1 percent of earners and defend the interests of hard-pressed working families and the treasured but financially stretched national health service.

If neither wins an overall majority, talks will begin on Friday with smaller parties in a race to strike deals.

That could lead to a formal coalition Samuel Umtiti Jersey , like the one Cameron has led for the past five years with the centrist Liberal Democrats. Or it could produce a fragile minority government making trade-offs to guarantee support on key votes.

British stock and bond prices were moderately higher on the final trading day before polling, with election jitters still failing to register any significant investor selling.

The pound was slightly weaker but remained within the relatively tight trading ranges seen over the past three months.

"What is important to us is clarity as soon as possible," Andrew Witty, chief executive of GlaxoSmithKline, Britain’s sixth largest company by market value, told reporters.


Of seven opinion polls released on the last day before voting Rafinha Jersey , three showed the two main parties tied. Three put the Conservatives ahead by a single percentage point, and one gave Labour a two-point lead.

Leading pollster Peter Kellner of YouGov predicted the Conservatives would end up with 284 seats to Labour's 263, with the Scottish Nationalists on 48, Liberal Democrats 31, the anti-European Union UK Independence Party (UKIP) two, Greens one Paulinho Jersey , and Welsh and Northern Irish parties 21.

If that proved correct, either of the two big parties would need support from at least two smaller ones in order to get laws through parliament.

If a durable government could not be formed, Britain could face political instability and even possibly a second election.

At heart, Britain's post-World War Two political consensus, which saw the Conservatives and Labour take turns in government, is crumbling as once marginal parties in Scotland and England steal millions of votes from established parties.

Scottish nationalists Paco Alcacer Jersey , who lost an independence vote last September, are likely to win the lion's share of seats in Scotland, capturing dozens from Labour, and making Miliband's chances of winning an overall majority much slimmer.

In England, UKIP has courted Conservative and Labour voters, but is likely to do most damage to Cameron's chances of a majority.

Cameron has warned that Miliband will only be able to rule with the help of the Scottish National Party (SNP) Ousmane Dembele Jersey , a result Cameron has warned could place the United Kingdom in peril.

Miliband has ruled out doing a deal with the nationalists, despite their overtures to form an alliance against the Conservatives.

"If we work together we can lock out the Tories. We will work with others across the United Kingdom, that is my pledge," SNP leader Nicola Sturgeon said in Edinburgh.

If Cameron fails to win a majority, he could try to strike a deal with the Liberal Democrats, a repeat of the 2010 coalition Neymar JR Jersey , and possibly also with Northern Irish unionists and UKIP.

Cameron has promised an in-out referendum on Britain's membership of the European Union by the end of 2017.

Polls open at 0600 GMT for the United Kingdom's 48 million voters and close at 2100 GMT. An exit poll will be published as soon as polls close, and most results are expected in the early hours of Friday.

WELLINGTON, May 20 (Xinhua) -- New Zealand Trade Minister Tim Groser has undermined trade negotiations with Canada with " unbecoming and undiplomatic" language, political opponents warned Wednesday.

The claim came after Groser spoke to the Reuters news agency last month about the introduction into the U.S. Congress of fast- track approval for the 12-nation Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade deal.

Groser said in the story that the move cleared the way for Canada to open up a protected dairy industry that "looks like it belongs in the former Soviet Union."

U.S.-based policy analyst Mary Bates then wrote a column quoting a Canadian official as saying the comments had shut down any chance of a Canadian government agreeing to lift controls.

The comments had made New Zealand a laughing stock on the international stage and had serious repercussions for New Zealand exports, said trade spokesperson for the main opposition Labour Party, David Parker.

The reported insult followed revelations that New Zealand spy agencies had spied on rivals to help Groser in his failed 2013 bid to head the World Trade Organization Nelson Semedo Jersey , Parker said in a statement.

"Mr. Groser is now the ridiculed owner of a verb in his
