London, Feb.28 (ANI): Gordon Brown is on course to remain Britain's Prime Minister after the general election as a new Sunday Times poll reveals that Labour is now just two points behind the Tories.

The YouGov survey places David Cameron's Conservatives on 37 percent, as against 35 percent for Labour - the closest gap between the parties in more than two years.

It means Labour is heading for a total of 317 seats, nine short of an overall majority, with the Tories languishing on a total of just 263 MPs.

Such an outcome would mean Brown could stay in office and deny Cameron the keys to No 10.

The poll result presents the Conservative leader with one of the greatest challenges of his leadership today as he makes the keynote speech to his party's spring forum.

According to The Times, with the expected May 6 election now just over two months away, Cameron will seek to reconnect with voters through a series of pledges, including a plan to restore discipline in schools.

YouGov polling for The Sunday Times showed Labour leads of between two and five points from January through to the June election. Labour's margin of victory was three points. (ANI)
