    The London conference on Zimbabwe Rhodesia struck major problems on Friday (19 October) with all three sides rejecting the other's proposals for ending the seven year old bush war and arranging new elections. Bishop Abel Muzorewa rejected out of hand British proposals that the present biracial parliament in Salisbury be dissolved in the lead up to new elections, while the Patriotic Front criticised British plans for a two month transitional period between a ceasefire and the elections. On the British side, Lord Carrington spoke out against the Patriotic Front's demands on election procedures and their call for a United Nations presence during the transition. The new problems emerged just at the three sides were talking again after a deadlock over the proposed constitution. At the end of Friday's talks British spokesman Nicholas fenn released details of the discussions.
