London, Jan. 4 (ANI): British Prime Minister Gordon Brown has apparently ruled out an early general election, while indicating that May 6 could be the polling date.

Brown, in an interview slip, said he could announce a spring budget, yet it won't be a part of the election campaign.

That leaves May as the favourite, while the last possible date is June 3.

Speaking on BBC, Brown also admitted Labour were election underdogs.

"When you are behind in the polls you have got to regard yourself as the fighter," The Sun quoted Brown, as saying.

Brown also signalled a U-turn on class war jibes at the Tories.

His recent Commons blast at Tory chief David Cameron's Eton schooling upset ministers.

"I don't attack him for being a toff. I attack him for having the wrong views," he said.

He also hinted that he is open to work with the Liberal Democrats in government.

"There is an agreement of ideas," he said. (ANI)
