当地时间5月11日(北京时间12日凌晨),英国大选的最后一个悬念终于揭开。现任首相布朗宣布将立即向英国女王提出辞职,保守党和自由民主党组建联合政府、卡梅伦出任新首相已成定局,工党13年的统治在这一天画上了句点。

北京时间12日凌晨,布朗在夫人莎拉的陪同下走出唐宁街首相官邸,对守候在外的记者宣布他将立即辞去首相职务,以下为布朗讲话全文(中英文对照)。布朗的两个儿子约翰和弗雷泽也首次与父母一同出现在媒体面前。布朗在宣布完自己的决定后跟家人一起乘车前往白金汉宫向女王正式递交辞呈。

    As you know, the general election left no party able to command a majority in the House of Commons。

       正如你们所知道的,在此次大选中没有哪个政党能够在下议院中拥有多数席位。

  I said I would do all that I could to ensure a strong, stable and principled government was formed, able to tackle Britain’s economic and political challenges effectively。

       我曾说过,我将尽我所能以确保组建一个强有力的、稳定的、有原则的政府,这个政府将能够有效地处理英国所面临的经济和政治挑战。

  My constitutional duty is to make sure that a government can be formed following last Thursday’s general election。

       我的宪法责任是确保在上周四的大选后英国能够组建一个政府。

  I have informed the Queen’s private secretary that it’s my intention to tender my resignation to the Queen。

       我已告知女王的私人秘书,我想向她提交辞呈。

  In the event that the Queen accepts, I shall advise her to invite the leader of the opposition to form a government. I wish the next prime minister well as he makes the important choices for the future。

        如果女王接受我的辞呈,我将建议她邀请反对党领导人组建政府。我祝未来首相好运,因为他将为未来作出重要的选择。

  Only those who have held the office of prime minister can understand the full weight of its responsibilities and its great capacity for good. I have been privileged to learn much about the very best in human nature, and a fair amount too about its frailties, including my own。

       只有那些曾担任过首相职务的人士才可以理解这一职务的责任是多么地重大,能够做多少好事。我有幸在担任这一职务时最真切地了解人的本性,也很大程度上了解了人的脆弱性,也包括我自己人性的脆弱。

  Above all, it was a privilege to serve. And, yes, I loved the job, not for its prestige, its title and its ceremony, which I do not love at all. No, I loved this job for its potential, to make this country I love fairer, more tolerant, more green, more democratic, more prosperous and more just – truly a greater Britain。

        首先,为国民服务是我的荣幸。是的,我爱这份工作,不是因为它所带来的特权、头衔、仪式,我根本不爱这些。不,我爱这份工作是因为它的潜力,使我所爱的国家更为公平、更宽容、更民主、更繁荣、更为正义,使其真的成为一个更为伟大的英国。

  In the face of many challenges in a few short years, challenges up to and including the global financial meltdown, I have always strived to serve, to do my best in the interests of Britain, its values and its people。

       最近几年在面临许多挑战,包括全球金融危机在内的挑战时,我总是努力地为国家服务,为了英国的利益、它的价值和它的民众尽我所能。

  And let me add one thing also。

        请让我补充说明一件事。

  I will always admire the courage I have seen in our armed forces. And now that the political season is over, let me stress that having shaken their hands and looked into their eyes, our troops represent all that is best in our country, and I will never forget all those who have died in honour and whose families today live in grief。

        我将永远仰慕我在英国军人身上所看到的勇气。现在竞选活动已经结束,我想强调的是,在和他们握手,直视他们的眼睛后,我理解我们的士兵代表着这个国家最好的东西。我永远不会忘记所有那些光荣牺牲的士兵和今天仍生活在悲痛中的他们的家人。

  My resignation as leader of the Labour party will take effect immediately. In this hour I want to thank all my colleagues, ministers, members of parliament. And I want to thank above all my staff who have been friends as well as brilliant servants of the country。

       我辞去工党领袖的决定将立刻生效。在这一时刻,我想感谢所有我的同事、大臣们、议员们。我特别想感谢我的所有工作人员,他们一直是我的朋友,也是国家优秀的公仆。

  Above all, I want to thank Sarah for her unwavering support, as well as her love, and for her own service to our country。

        我特别想感谢萨拉,谢谢她的坚定支持、她的爱、以及她对我们国家所作的事情。

  I thank my sons John and Fraser for the love and joy they bring to our lives。

        我感谢我的两个儿子约翰和弗拉塞尔,感谢他们的爱和他们给我们生活所带来的快乐。

  And as I leave the second most important job I could ever hold, I cherish even more the first, as a husband and father。

        在我将离任我生命中第二最重要的工作时,我更加珍视我的第一重要的工作,那就是作为一名丈夫和父亲。

  Thank you and goodbye。

        谢谢,再见。
