Labour\’s lost it

So, anyone else been spammed overnight by The Sun telling us all about their front page?

It\’s possibly the least surprising political move ever. The Sun now backs the Tories.

Really?

  1. I do think it’s a bit strange that no-one discusses whether it is a desirable endorsement. I understand that it gives the endorsee (?) more votes, so is good electorally (the amount is debatable).

    Tim adds: As has been discussed around here before: I think newspapers follow the prejudices of their readers, not create them. That’s the significance: that the pretty well informed editors of The Sun think that Labour has lost their C2DE readership. Not the other way around, that the endorsement will lose Labour the C2DE vote.

  2. Personally I was rather disappointed that Gordon Brown didn’t get really tough in his speech. I had hopped that he’d step up to the plate and make the 2010 elections interesting but the Labour Party Conference I think has totally failed to make it big in my minds eye.

    Unless it’s to do with stories that have been kept out the public eye so they can be unleashed during an election campaign, I doubt Dominic Mohan, formerly of Bizarre, has anything to add on Labour’s chances that we can’t work out from the opinion polls.
