    Workers construct the stage the day before the third and final televised election campaign leadership debate in Birmingham April 28, 2010. British Prime Minister Gordon Brown goes into his final pre-election debate on Thursday trying to rescue his Labour Party from defeat while fending off a gaffe in which he called one of his traditional voters "bigoted". Brown, whose critics paint him as socially unskilled and bullying, was caught on tape on Wednesday complaining about a woman in her 60s who had challenged his 13-year-old Labour government's approach to immigration.

    Britain's Prime Minister Gordon Brown speaks with an army cadet during a walk through Piccadilly rail station in Manchester, northwest England, April 28, 2010. Brown apologised in person for describing a voter as "a bigoted woman" on Wednesday, seeking to limit the damage from the gaffe before next week's parliamentary election. Brown's Labour party, in power for 13 years but trailing in opinion polls, had already been on the defensive after opposition parties said the Greek financial crisis was an example of what could happen if Britain's record budget deficit was not tackled.
