    The Daily Mail is clearly the BNP. I'd say The Spectator is Conservative.

    the daily mail obviously exaggerate some of the issues but the guardian so exactly the same

    the daily mail's site is terrible. just a place for trolls and corrupt mods. the mods are so slippery, one day they ban all pro ukip comments, then they ban all anti ukip comments.

    The independent will back the winner. Does seem Farage friendly though.

    The FT will back the Tories this election.

    The Daily Mail supports the Ukip agenda but backs the Tories.

    The telegraph is solid Tory, not sure why you think its Ukip. Its far too sane and factual to back them.

    The Times will back the Tories this election.

    Guardian could go either Green or Labour.

    they deleted my comments on poor people lol. i made the comment that poor people tend to be poor because of the decisions they've made and rich people take a lot more risks than poor people and they deserve their rewards for it. they deleted my comments and now put me on a watch list so my future comments have to be approved before being posted. bunch of tree hugging *******s

    Not a huge Guardian reader but it reads as more opinionated and critical - so very biased.

    The Daily Mail just doesn't give a damn - from racially-charged stories to rampant spelling errors. They know we love to hate them. It keeps them popular so they stick with it. Kudos for all its celeb news.

    The daily mail supported the National Socialist German Worker's Party during the war and has since attracted 'the right', which I'd say differs from the left's papers in that there is a wider variety of political views found in the mail, where the left wants only to make radical socialism the new centre, that's to say the intellectual right wingers make no apologies for their convictions (non politicians), and the left try to appear cosy (which is one of the most sinister and revolting consepts that will realistically be reality in the near future)

    As of 2010:

    The Guardian and Observer went Lib Dem.
    The Mirror and Morning Star went Labour.
    The Independent and The Daily Star didn't declare.
    Everyone else went Conservative.


    Wouldn't expect big deviations from that

    Probably not dissimilar to 2010:

    What you can be absolutely certain of is [sunday] Torygraph being Conservative (there's a reason people call it the Torygraph) and [sunday] mirror being Labour, with the majority being Conservative

    Main changes I'd expect from 2010:

    Guardian will almost certainly not back Lib Dems this time. It will either be Green, reluctant Labour or not back anyone.

    Express will back UKIP.

    Small chance that the Mail will back UKIP, but more likely they'll go Tory again.

    Everyone else will stay the same. Though oddly enough I think the Economist might back the Lib Dems.

    In 2015, I suspect the papers will support the following parties:


    Guardian: Green or reluctant Labour
    Telegraph: Conservative
    The Times: Conservative
    Daily Mail: Conservative
    Mirror: Labour
    Express: UKIP
    Independent: Green or reluctant Labour
    The Economist: Conservative
    The Spectator: Conservative
    The Financial Times: Conservative (Given the FT's pro-EU stance, perhaps reluctantly).
    The New Statesman: Labour
    The Sun: Conservative

    EDIT: I suspect the Guardian will support Labour on the basis that the Conservatives, they will argue, are pure evil!!!
