Tory party to focus on 'change' for polls

7:59 pm on 27 February 2010

The Conservative Party in Britain will fight the coming general election under the slogan "Vote for change".

Leader David Cameron was expected to tell delegates at a conference in Brighton this weekend that the party can offer people real change.

However, recent polls have suggested that the Conservatives' lead over Labour may be narrowing.

An Ipsos/Mori poll for the Daily Telegraph, published on Friday, suggests the lead is five points - down from 28 in September 2008. It gives the Conservatives 37%, Labour 32% and the Liberal Democrats 19%.

The election, which must be held by June. is expected to take place on 6 May. Prime Minister Gordon Brown this week revealed Labour's election slogan would be "A future fair for all".
