Voters decide elections, says PM as Sun switches sides

Author: PA

The Prime Minister insisted that voters and not newspapers decided the
Government, urging people to take a close look at his policies.

In a round of broadcast interviews, Mr Brown said: “It’s the British people
that decide the election, it’s the British people’s views that I am
interested in.”

Mr Brown told GMTV: “I think Sun readers actually, when they look at what I
say, they will agree with what I said.”

Asked whether the tabloid’s support could decide the next General Election, as
it was reputed to have done in 1992 by condemning Labour’s leader Neil
Kinnock, Mr Brown replied: “No.”

He added: “Obviously, you want newspapers to be for you. We would have liked
everybody to be on our side, but the people decide.

“I’ve got an old-fashioned opinion that you look to newspapers for news not
opinions.”
