Economist, May 2-8, 2015
One week ahead of Britain's national elections, polls are too close to call between the two leading candidates, the Tories' incumbent Prime Minister David Cameron and Labour leader Ed Miliband. The Economist divides its cover between the two, casting the election as a choice between risks: for the economy (Miliband) and for a possible UK exit from the European Union (Cameron).
"The Tories’ Europhobia, which we regretted last time, could now do grave damage," the magazine writes. "A British exit from the EU would be a disaster, for both Britain and Europe." But ultimately, the editors see the recipe for a "fairer Britain" proposed by Miliband as a greater risk to the nation's future: "Despite the risk on Europe, the better choice is Mr Cameron’s Conservatives."
