Will it be The Sun what wins it?

The media are reporting that Rupert Murdoch is flirting with the idea of backing the Conservatives at the next election. He's also been very critical of suggestions that there should be a snap election if Old Man Brown becomes Prime Minister. Murdoch's influence on newspaper readership is still substantial so no doubt many in Not So Very New Labour will start panicking. But I don't think the Liberal Democrats will have dashed hopes as I doubt they ever believed Murdoch could be won over.

Now will The Sun be backing the eventual winners of the next general election? We shall see...

Hmm, I don't think Rupert Murdoch is a big fan of Old Man Brown.

This does not bode well, although one man should not hold such an influence in how people vote!
