Morale boost for Ed Miliband as poll gives Labour first lead in three years

Ed Miliband ends his first week as Labour leader with his party ahead of the Tories in a Guardian/ICM poll for the first time since Gordon Brown ducked the chance of holding an election in 2007.

(...) today's poll puts Labour on 37%, unchanged on last month. The Conservatives have dropped two points to 35% – down from a post-election high of 41% in June – and the Liberal Democrats are unchanged on 18%.

Given opinion polls show that people WANT higher taxes on the richest people, banks to be charged extra levies, a higher minimum wage and more rights for workers maybe Labour should indeed move to the left.

Vote Labour! Oh no there isn't an Election for another 4 1/2 years damn!

and from such impartial sources too!

I agree that these 2 sources are biased, lefty, but I think the polling companies are reasonably professional.

Re. 4 1/2 years to the next election, the problem is that these 4 1/2 years will probably the hardest in living memory. In terms of cuts, they didn't even start yet! We "ain't seen nothing yet"! Imagine the government's popularity in 4 1/2 years! (We can't even be sure the government will last 4 1/2 years!)

in other news, another survey found that 37% of the people questioned turned out to be complete and utter morons. The other 31% said that they did not believe the results of surveys were accurate, 28% said that most statistic were completely made up anyway and the remaining 4% attempted to get off with person carrying out the survey.

Yep you're right and what's more if the people of the U.K are fickle enough to realise what Brown did and vote them in again then they deserve what they get.

Baaa, baaa, baah, baah

The sheeple have enough distance from Brown now to start blaming the Koalishon for the state of the country.

O'Bama is in the same boat--no quick fix so he will be a one-termer too.

Baaah, baah, baaaaaaaaaaaaaaahaaaaaaa

I know. I agree. It is actually tragic already that the polls are so good for Labour. That, by itself, is already a damning indictment on the British electorate. (Democracy is indeed a very very counter-intuitive system...) Emigration anyone (else) ?

Well err ICM pollsters are impartial so that comment it totally meaningless

The Guardian have published endless polls showing Tory leads in recent years.

Oh, and can you actually remember who the Guardian backed in the last election (hint-it wasn't Labour).

The nerve that is touched by nonsensical comments? most certainly :P

Feel free if you actually want to add to the debate by defending your comment otherwise I'll just assume that my point is taken. :D

I still don't really understand what you mean-do you mean how many other papers reported this poll?

It doesn't work like that-each newspaper commissions the pollster to do a poll so only that paper publishes it.

Its not much of a poll lead is it, considering the state of the economy, a shiny new leader & blanket coverage of the Labour conference? I just can't see Labour winning the next election.

I can, this government will be very unpopular in 4 years time. I don't see them doing enough to change things, this country will just lurch forward in a zombie state.
