UK's Brown says worst of recession over

Prime Minister Gordon Brown says in a New Year's message that the worst of the recession is over and that Britain's economy will slowly recover in 2010.
Brown says he is confident that unemployment will start to drop and more small businesses will begin to flourish in the coming year. His optimistic tone compares to a more somber one in his year-end message last year, when he warned about the difficulties of coping with the economic downturn.
In his message, broadcast from his official Web site Wednesday, Brown said his first priority for the new year is to secure the recovery while cutting the deficit.
Brown did not mention the general election that must be held before mid-2010 and that is widely expected to sweep his Labour Party out of office.
