I've never been a big one for opinion polls, but Julian told me about this latest poll.
Con 41% (-1)
Lab 24% (-)
LD 18% (-)
Other 16% (-) UKIP 5, Green 4, Nationalists 3, BNP 3.
So Tories still 17 points ahead, that's pretty big.
when voters were asked whether they agreed or disagreed that "The NHS would be safer under Labour than the Conservatives", only 39% agreed and 47% disagreed.
So no moves there, despite Hannan's best efforts. Pants.
On the economy:
The Conservatives have the right ideas about how to get Britain out of recession:
Agree 37% (Feb 35%, April 38%)
Disagree 48% (Feb 45%, April 49%)
On the High Pay Commission:
A High Pay Commission should be set up to curb excessive pay and bonuses:
with the latter, I think the chances of Labour jumping on this populist bandwagon are very low, it's not really New Labour style. Also, I think that may be sound political judgement because I don't think the enthusiasm for it will last. Britain is not THAT far left, unfortunately
