Newspapers abandon Labour in final week endorsements

Following their sister paper, the Guardian, the Observer today endorsed the Liberal Democrats. This follows the Times newspaper’s endorsement of the Conservatives.

“Awarding seats in parliament in proportion to votes cast would extend the franchise to millions of people who feel their voices have gone unheard,” the Observer leader says.

“The Lib Dems have in recent years developed a habit of getting things right. They were first of the big three to embrace environmentalism, first to kick back against the assault on civil liberties, alone in opposing the Iraq war.”
