No Sun Euro-endorsement for the Tories

The Sun has been shining on David Cameron recently. The paper’s call for an early election has helped Cameron out considerably and it has generally given him a pretty positive write-up these past few weeks. But today’s editorial on the European elections pointedly does not endorse the Tories:

“Labour has surrendered all credibility by betraying its pledge to hold a referendum on the Constitution.

The Tories talk tough but send out conflicting messages.

Tiny Libertas offers hope after masterminding Ireland’s sensational NO vote against the Constitution last year.

UKIP just wants to pull Britain out of the EU altogether.

If the established parties have their way, the prospects for change in Brussels vary between fat chance and no chance.” I’m sure The Sun will strongly back the Tories at the next general election. But this editorial shows that The Sun is not yet totally sold on Cameron.
