We're on way back, say Tories; MAY 3 ELECTIONS: 46 DAYS TO GO AND THE PARTIES COME OUT FIGHTING.

TOP Tories yesterday claimed the party is on the way back to power.

Shadow chancellor George Osborne and former leader William Hague rallied the Tory faithful at the party's spring forum in Nottingham.

They said victory at the next election was within reach - but only if the party continue their transformation and prove they are ready for government.

Osborne told delegates the country was looking to the Tories to provide the change it was "crying out for".

He added: "The public knows Gordon Brown can never be that change. He is part of the problem, not the solution."

The shadow chancellor added the prospect of an election win meant they had to be responsible and not promise tax cuts they might not be able to deliver.

Hague, the shadow foreign secretary, told the meeting: "We have set the pace, made the news, won elections and topped the polls.

"After a decade and a half in the doldrums, that feels good."
