The people of the United Kingdom(UK) will go to the polls tomorrow to elect a new government. And based upon the decision of the people, Great Britain, will at some point after that decision, be compelled to address the question of continuation or opting out of the European Union)EU).
Prime Minister David Cameron is seeking a second term as leader of the Kingdom with his Conservative Party, which has shared a coalition government with the Liberal Democrats. In the final hours of campaigning, Cameron has held that Great Britain is "stronger than it was five-years-ago" while admitting there was "more to do", the BBC-News reported earlier this morning.
Ed Miliband of the Labor Party has asked Great Britain to vote "to reward hard work in our country again." Nick Clegg of the Liberal Democrats has offered "stability and decency".
While the British will ultimately vote their democratic preferences, tomorrow's vote holds much intrigue as in roads and gains of the Scottish National Party(SNP) are measured. And as the Plaid Cymru Party seeks to become a part of a "change that's coming". Moreover, clearly watched would be the performance of the United Kingdom Independence Party(UKIP) - the anti-immigration party, which has pushed the controversial reality of European immigration toward the top of issues on the agendas of some European governments.
But Great Britain's main test will come subsequent to the general election. David Cameron has promised that should he be victorious at the polls, he would hold a referendum on Britain's continued membership in the EU.
However, Great Britain - the former great empire upon which once the sun never set, should be mindful of the many benefits available from membership within the EU. Hence, questions of currency and immigration policy could best be solve as part of a collective unit rather than unitary. But the final decisions rest with the learned people of Great Britain; and beginning tomorrow, the world will witness the democratic preferences of the British people.
