The prime minister has shown strong leadership in the recovery from the depths of the recession.

On May 7, British voters will go to the polls to elect a new government. I rarely endorse national candidates; the last time I did was in 2012, when I expressed my support for Barack Obama. But my longstanding business, civic and philanthropic ties to London, and my concern for the future of the U.K. economy and its importance to world markets, now lead me to make an exception.
