'It's time for a new leader'

The political editor of the Sun newspaper has defended the decision for the paper to back the Conservatives for the next election.

The paper's front page for Wednesday says: "After twelve long years in power Labour has lost its way and now it has lost us too."

Speaking on the BBC's Newsnight, George Pascoe-Watson said ''The prime minister failed to convince us he was the right man for the country.

''We feel it's time for a new leader''.
