"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

Polls Latest

Tomorrow's YouGov poll for the Sunday Times makes me wonder whether my wildest dream might come true - Labour wiped out at the election.  The next twelve days are going to be very bumpy indeed because on the figures there could really be a Hung Parliament and who in their right mind would want a Lab/LibDem coalition? The Labour vote needs to slump further with votes going to UKIP, BNP, English Democrats - anybody but the LibDem lefties.

Other polls:

Ipsos Mori for the News of the World:
Con: 36%
Lab:  30%
LibDem:  23%

ICM for the Sunday Telegraph:
Con: 35%
LibDem:  31%
Lab:  26%

ComRes for the Independent on Sunday and the Sunday Mirror:
Con: 34%
LibDem: 29%
Lab: 28%

Political Betting says:
For the key development is that the yellow bubble hasn’t burst and the lift from the first debate is being sustained.
Labour will feel very uncomfortable with the ICM 26% share - that’s getting very low indeed and there must be concern that supporters could switch to Nick Clegg’s party to stop the Tories.
Some points from the ComRes poll:-
  • Turnout looks set to be really quite high – 66% say ‘absolutely certain’ to vote, the highest registered of this campaign.
  • Lib Dem support is still strongest among the younger age groups – 41% among 18-24s.
  • Labour is ahead among C2s and DEs ie its core social groups while 35% of ABs say they’ll vote Lib Dem.
  • The Lib Dem figures are particularly strong in the North of England.
UPDATE: I missed this while I was offline. It's a short article from Dan Hannan “Whoever thought that we might win England?”a Belgian palaeo-federalist bellowed at me just now, beaming with joy.


  1. Is it too early to get excited GV?

    I want to witness the most humiliating defeat in Labours history. I want revenge for 13 years of pain. It isn't because I am bitter (I may well be), but I do want to see justice.

    There was a time when I would have been content to see them on the opposition benches. Now I want them out of the building completely.


  2. Me too, CR. I've been harbouring secret dreams of a Con govt with LibDem Opposition and a scattering of UKIP/BNP MPs plus Plaid/SNP for over a year now. I'd like to see the Labour/Fabian concoction wiped out, blitzed to bits, never to return. Glad to see you made it back from Libya in one piece - great story.

  3. Thanks.

    Heading back there next week!
