So the Sun has decided to back Cameron, albeit reluctantly.
But the great thing to hear is the huffing and puffing of the left over this.
A few things to note:
Papers do not decide elections.
Papers reflect the readership's view not set it
Around 40% of the Sun's readership has always voted Labour, people forget it was orginally left-of-centre when it started.
One more thing and there is an increasing amount of waffle about what is "right". Apparently The Sun supporting Labour was a perfectly right thing to do but the other way round is an affront to democracy and that "people decide elections, not newspapers". Perfectly right Gordon but why is it only important when The Sun turns Tory?
