Daily Mirror - Has the pro-Labour tide turned?

I was amazed to read an article in today's Daily Mirror that attacked the Labour "Tory toff" campaign being fought in Crewe and Nantwich. As Tony Parsons points out: "Gwyneth Dunwoody would never have run such a shallow campaign." Such critique of Labour's campaign comes as a welcome surprise after reading Brian Reade's pathetic article in the same paper last week. So I've got to ask: Are the Mirror going the way of the Sun in their support for Cameron's Conservatives? Has the Mirror's pro-Labour tide turned?

Here is a snippet from Tony's article:

As Labour supporters shrieked about rich Tories in Bentleys, they did not seem to have the faintest idea that Bentley has provided generations of Crewe families with work. In Crewe, a Bentley is a potent symbol of highly skilled, proud working men and a brand recognised around the world. Pointing self-righteous fingers might have worked elsewhere, but using a Bentley as an example of privilege in Crewe is thick. But there are other words to describe the class war Labour has waged in Crewe - witless, mindless and thoughtless. If you are going to talk about class, it needs to be done with intelligence and passion.
Well done Tony Parsons. You can read the full article by clicking HERE.
