I would like to pick your mind about the following sentence that I've juse read in a Canadian's newspaper which is called National Post. This extract comes from a subject on the British Prime Minister. I'm very chatty and talkative but do not give up, here is the sentence:
The allegations, contained in excerpts of a new book published in the Observer, put Mr. Brown's character at the heart of Britain's political debate in the build-up to an election due by June that the ruling Labour Party is forecast to lose.What would the writer tell us with this little word ' ruling'? Is there a relation or connection with the power in place in UK?
Thanks for your replies (Do not hesitate to correct me).
Hi teacher, I see you are always fast,
But if I follow your explanation. In France for example the ruling party is the UMP because they have the power choose the person who are working for the government. But instead of UMP we had the PS party can we call them the ruling party, do you follow my mind?
Thanks for your reply.
