Hague, BZ

Britain's Conservative shadow Foreign Secretary, William Hague makes a statement to the media, after a meeting with Conservative Members of Parliament, outside the Houses of Parliament in London, Monday, May 10, 2010. British Prime Minister Gordon Brown announced Monday he will resign by September _ a dramatic move that improves his Labour Party's chances of staying in power in a possible coalition government with the third-place Liberal Democrats. Brown said Labour, which came a distant second to the Conservatives in Thursday's national election, would begin a leadership contest to replace him while he focused on talks aimed at breaking Britain's election deadlock.
