The News of the World endorses David Cameron
"Overwhelmingly, on all fronts, this country is crying out for change. Which is why, after much soul-searching, the News of the World believes that David Cameron and the Tory Party must now be given the chance to run the country. Right now, they are our best hope for a brighter, saner, safer, more honourable future." – News of the World

Labour plans to target George Osborne
"Labour vowed last night to target the shadow chancellor, George Osborne, as the strategic "weak link" in the Conservatives' bid for power. Party sources told the Observer that a decision had been taken to focus on Osborne as the prime target throughout the campaign, because the future stewardship of the economy is the issue that most concerns voters." – Observer
Martin Ivens, in The Sunday Times, recommends that George Osborne simplifies his message.
The Observer previews tomorrow evening's Channel 4 Chancellors' Debate (8pm, Monday and being live blogged by ConservativeHome).

Andrew Rawnsley pays tribute to Gordon Brown's "priceless asset", Alistair Darling: "Alistair Darling is one of the few politicians who can still command a degree of respect, not a negligible quality in an era when the political classes are held in such contempt by most of the public. Whether or not he is still chancellor in six weeks' time, his remarkable survival is a parable which other politicians might usefully ponder on." – Observer

Senior Cameron source confirms Tories will reverse NICs hike
"Crucial to any Tory message on growth is repealing Labour’s National Insurance rise. I am assured by a senior member of the Cameron operation that we will hear ‘shortly’ a firmed-up Tory pledge to do this. Then the Tories would have a good clear message – ‘we’ll cut the tax on jobs’. It would also allow them to show that Labour’s tax hikes aren’t just going to hit people who earn more than £150,000 a year and plan to trade up from one £1million house to another – but anyone who earns over £20,000 a year." – James Forsyth in the Mail on Sunday
The Sunday Times: No party leader is levelling with us
"David Cameron attacks the government, as he did again yesterday, for “taking people for fools”. So far at least, however, he is doing no better himself. The Tory leader’s opening pitch to voters was that he would cut the budget deficit without touching the National Health Service, as if this bloated bureaucracy, now employing a staggering 1.6m people, should be treated as a sacred cow." – The Sunday Times leader
John Rentoul: Voters think the Tories will put up taxes, which they hate, to tackle a problem – the deficit – which they don't care much about – Independent on Sunday

If the Tories were to lose…
"The Tory "modernisers" say the party was not "modern" enough. The traditionalists say it needs less PR, and more "substance". The line-up of potential contenders grows by the hour: Osborne, Michael Gove, Liam Fox, Jeremy Hunt, David Davis ("I have had time to think"). But the sensation of the day is Boris Johnson's out-of-the-blue ("wholly routine") announcement that he will not be seeking a second term as London Mayor in 2012 and the formation of an unofficial "Draft Boris" group, with its own website and Facebook page, already busily exploring the constitutional possibility of a sitting Mayor becoming an MP in a by-election, before the end of his term of mayoral office." – Matthew d'Ancona in The Sunday Telegraph
