    Sun newspaper comes out for Cameron's Conservatives in election Wed, Apr 29, 2015

    Britain's best selling newspaper, The Sun, came out in support of Prime Minister David Cameron's Conservatives citing the economy, fears about the power of Scottish nationalists and Cameron's promise of a referendum on European Union membership.

"Today, after a gruelling five-year wait and an appalling Labour, The Sun is proud to deliver our choice for the election," the newspaper said. "It's the Tories." Opinion polls show Cameron's Conservatives and the opposition Labour Party of Ed Miliband are neck and neck, indicating neither party will win an outright majority in the 650-seat Westminster Parliament.
