The final furlong for party leaders ahead of British election

Gordon Brown yesterday gave the most impassioned speech of his career according to The Guardian, but is it too late? The Sun reports on David Cameron’s last-ditch tour of the country during which he will forego a night’s sleep. Did it convince the Financial Times he’s got the necessary will?! The paper has become the eight national daily to support the Conservatives. These and other stories in today’s international press review: TUESDAY, 4th MAY 2010

 

Articles in today’s international press review:
 
Coverage of the British elections: The Guardian, The Independent, The New Statesman, The Sun, The Financial Times (editorial supporting The Conservatives and article by Chris Patten on British foreign policy).
 
The Irish Times covers the closure of Irish air space because of the return of the ash cloud.
 
The New York Times features a series of photos giving examples of “Chinglish” – badly-translated English in China. The phenomenon is seen as an embarrassment by Chinese authorities who are trying to eradicate it.
