Special Report: Britain General Election |


Britain's prime minister Gordon Brown and the two men who want his job have faced-off in the country's second election debate.

A broad range of policies were discussed, live on television, in front of the men's toughest critics: voters.

This was the second of three debates being held in the lead-up to Britain's election on the 6th of May.

It was a chance for Gordon Brown, David Cameron and Nick Clegg to tell voters why they should get the keys to number 10 Downing Street in less than two weeks.
