British PM Brown Voices His Endorsement for Obama

British Prime Minister Gordon Brown has indicated he supports Sen. Barack Obama as the next president of the United States. In giving his support, Brown said Obama's plan to get the United States out of its housing slump is the key.

"Around the world, it is progressive politicians who are grappling with these challenges....In the electrifying US Presidential campaign, it is the Democrats who are generating the ideas to help people through more difficult times. To help prevent people from losing their home, Barack Obama has proposed a Foreclosure Prevention Fund to increase emergency pre-foreclosure counselling, and help families facing repossession."

Brown wrote the statement in an article published in The Monitor magazine. A report on that article is here, as Paul Waugh writes in a blog for the Evening Standard
