On May 7, Britain will go to the polls in perhaps its most closely contested election in recent memory. In play – at least theoretically – is its future in the European Union, its economic strategy and maybe even the future of its nuclear deterrent. But to the rest of the world, and the United States in particular, will it really make a difference whether David Cameron or Ed Miliband is Prime Minister. Or even if there is a messy hung parliament with coalition negotiations going on for weeks.

PS21 has an excellent panel to discuss these issues. Please sign up early as places are limited.
