Text settings

Despite all the courting of small ‘c’ conservatives in the speech, Gordon Brown doesn’t get the front page coverage he would have wanted in two key papers. The Sun’s front pages blares, ‘Not his finest hour’ and takes him to task for not promising a referendum on the EU Constitution/Treaty: The Sun was clearly serious when it promised to keep up the pressure until polling day. While the Daily Mail’s front page is dominated by a story about the McCanns.
