Britain's political leaders on Tuesday began a final push for votes ahead of this week's knife-edge election, even as they prepared for the likelihood of protracted coalition talks once polls close. Prime Minister David Cameron, whose Conservatives are neck and neck with the opposition Labour party in the opinion polls, kicked off a 36-hour tour of the country that will see him campaign through the night. He urged voters to give his party on Thursday a clear mandate to govern or risk years of "back-room deals" and "bribes" as Labour sought to form a government with the support of the smaller Scottish National Party (SNP). Both Cameron and Labour leader Ed Miliband -- who has put the state-run National Health Service (NHS) at the centre of the last two days of campaigning -- have insisted they are aiming for a parliamentary majority.
