Soaraway Sun swings back to Tories

Published on 30 September 2009 at 12:45


“Labour’s lost it,” announces The Sun, now that the Labour Party Congress is underway. The party led by Gordon Brown has failed to live up to its principles, lost the support of the tabloid, and may lose the general election slated for the spring of next year — at least The Sun hopes it will. The traditionally pro-Tory newspaper raised eyebrows when it came out in support of Tony Blair in 1997, but today, it has changed its tune: “the real story of the Labour years is one of under-achievement, rank failure and a vast expansion of wasteful government interference in everyone’s lives.” On health, education, immigration, and the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan: Labour has failed. “We hope, and pray, that the next Government will have the guts and the determination,” to take action in these fields, insists the outspoken daily, which announces its support for the Conservative party. “And we believe David Cameron should lead it.”
