Hung Parliament? UK Could Face Election Conundrum

If the polls are to be believed, Thursday's British election may produce a "hung parliament," where no political party holds an absolute majority. That's a cause for angst in a place where tradition, fair play and a system that inflates majorities have generally sorted out who is the next prime minister by last call at the pub. To help navigate the awkwardness, Britons need look no further than to Israel, a former colony where fractured politics, post-election horse-trading and permanent campaigning have become the norm, and where a similar conundrum was just resolved.
