General Elections provide a great opportunity for red top headline writers, and love it or hate it, you have to admit, The Sun comes up with some corkers.

The Sun Headline

The 1992 election was no different and polling day in that year produced one of the most talked about headlines of modern history: 'If Kinnock wins today will the last person to leave Britain please turn out the lights'.

See the British Library's edition of this classic front page.

Polls are also big front page winners: check out a spreasheet of ICM polls from 1992.
