Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
As I suggested on FB, "the only polling company with any credibility on the UK scene is Survation. They have a tory lead of 4% over labour. (The rest are closer to Rasmussen in their willingness to provide results to flatter the tories)

But it's well established by now that the libdems hurt tories far more than Labour, especially as they track towards more traditionally tory policies and their avowed hatred of Labour.

So my take is that Labour's 24% is a good percentage when the Tories/brexit and LibDems are fighting over similar electorates"

Especially as electoral law forces the media to present all parties relatively evenly, which is now considered the very reason for Labour's surge during the last General Election. I haven't heard any panic being reported about the polls from Labour leaning blogs who have a good relationship with the Cabinet.

Of course, the Blairites are salivating at the possibility of wipeout, or at least electoral embarrassment and so are feigning their "worry" with concern trolling in every centre right newspaper.

And much as at the last GE, they're all gonna end up with egg on their face, not that it will shut them up.

By the way, Uxbridge (Boris own constituency) is officially a marginal and Labour have been getting good results in private polling there and have good reason to think they can dump him as an MP

keep to the Fen Causeway
