The upcoming British election in May is shaping up to be the most important in decades. Last year's Scottish Referendum vote returned a 'no', but it has nonetheless deeply energised and affected the political and voting landscape. The Scottish National Party has quadrupled its membership and some pundits predict that British Labour may decide to join them in an alliance after the May 7 elections. And last May, India elected Narendra Modi as Prime Minister. Former BBC correspondent and U.K. Labour party communications expert, Lance Price was given access to Modi and has analysed his campaign. And in Timor-Leste, the Red Cross is using its expertise in water and sanitation to improve the health and wellbeing of the locals.
