Local elections rout adds pressure on British PM Cameron's coalition
London, May 5 (ANI): British Prime Minister David Cameron has come under pressure following his party's heavy defeat in the UK Local Elections 2012.
Former Liberal Democrat Treasury spokesman, Lord Oakeshott pointed out that the party would only recover popularity if growth is restored to the economy.
"The Treasury looks like a beached whale after the tide has gone out - there is the odd spout about yet more cuts but basically they are clueless and helpless," The Guardian quoted Oakeshott, as saying.
The election saw the Labour Government gain large number of votes all over the country, that helped party member Ken Livingstone get really close to British conservative Party member and current Mayor, Boris Johnson in the London mayoral contest.
Despite a late wobble Johnson won a second term as London mayor, beating Livingstone by a marginal 3%.
Livingstone said he was truly sorry to Londoners for failing to win, adding this was his last election.
Deputy prime minister, Nick Clegg, confessed that he was "really sad" at the results of Cameron's party, and promised to continue to play his role in rescuing the economy. (ANI)
