News of the World backs Conservatives

The Murdoch title has announced it is backing the Tories in the upcoming general election.

The paper also appealed to the voters to back the Conservative Party, after it had supported Labour in the elections of 1997, 2001 and 2005.

In its Labour column, the newspaper said the country is crying for change and added that after much soul-searching, it believes David Cameron's party should be given a chance to govern the country.

The paper expressed the hope that the Conservatives will be able to provide a brighter and more honourable future for Britain.
