Morning Call: pick of the papers
The ten must-read comment pieces from this morning's papers.
1. Now it’s David Cameron’s turn to display his one-nation credentials (Daily Telegraph)
It’s a simple choice for the Tories: face defeat or rekindle the high hopes of two years ago, says Peter Oborne.
Like Eric Hobsbawn, Miliband and Blair recognise the Labour party has to transcend old failed labourism to win and govern, says Martin Kettle.
3. Innovation drives America’s reinvention (Financial Times)
From looking lost in telecoms and energy, the US has recovered and raced ahead of competition, writes John Gapper.
4. Savile’s time was different. We’ve grown up (Times) (£)

The minister should hold back on her lifestyle advice, says Mary Ann Sieghart.

Ministers and mandarins must work together to avoid repeating the West Coast rail franchise fiasco, says Sue Cameron.
8. David Cameron has lost his chance to redefine the Tories (Guardian)

The country can no longer rely on an endless stream of pliant migrant workers, says David Pilling.
