They'll be back up again, even if it means getting rid of Johnson. There's a very long way to go, anyone who thinks this is a precursor to the next election result is either wishfully thinking (if they like Labour) or bonkers.

It's easy to "vote" against the party in power when there's not a real election going on.

Labour has literally nothing to offer right now other than one vaguely impressive bloke who has barely been tested yet.

I actually hope Labour turns into something viable from the present sh1tshow and, if they deserve to, wins.

Not going to wait up just in case though.

Agreed. Choice of two sh1tshows, which is nothing new, sadly.

Unless you know something about Labour which I don't.

Have never said that Labour is a better choice at the moment.  All I do is call out thick feckw1ts who stick up for Boris and Cummings. 

A right pair of ugly retards who should never have been anywhere near 'the seat of power'.

Frankly opinion polls 4 years ahead of the next election are for information only.

Interesting to judge the current mood, but not really indicative of what happens in 2024.

Brexit will have collapsed the Red Wall constituencies’ economies and people will be eating grass in Burnley by then.

Meanwhile Londoners and Southern Tories will have made out like bandits.

The damage done to the north since November will take 10-15 years to recover.

A lot of people are going to have to learn that being thick and ignorant has consequences (except if you live in the South East, I guess..).

Indeed, it’s all down to financialisation in London. A lot of the Hedge Funds and prop trading banks have done well out of this, and now have money to spend. Money on IT, for plumbers etc, but you need to be within 40 miles of London to really benefit.

I'm amazed we're still leading tbh!

Imagine if the last decade had been on Labour's watch.

They got elected promising to eradicate the debt and then proceeded to sharply work toward tripling it!

It is relevant though. Government policy decimating the north is the point, particularly when  it impacts polling.

So they can replace those xp machines and finally get those leaks fixed. 

Thank god from profiteering from death.

You really think the last ten years would have been even worse under Labour? The Tory government since Brown (of whom I'm no fan) has got every single thing they have done catastrophically wrong. The worst decade of governance in this country certainly in my lifetime. Everything from Austerity to the Brexit referendum, through to the current Covid shambles, and no sign of it getting better or anyone more competent emerging (with the possible exception of Sunak).

Mr Stammer is no match for Boris. We will see couple more Labour leaders before Blair 2.0 emerges from Corbyn's backside.

Have you watched any PMQs since Keir became Labour leader? Boris is finally getting shown up for what he is; a lazy, incompentent pseudo intellectual waste of space. I don't think he'll make it to the next election but I do think that Keir will. Labout would have won either of the last two elections easily with him at the helm.

None of that is to say I am a Labour party cheerleader but surely even the most blinkered of Tory voters here can see that the quality of our government (and indeed opposition) has been in the toilet for decades.

I do not. I was merely pointing out how easy it'd be to spin it negatively if it had been a Labour government!

I'm astonished given how awful it's been that they still have a poll lead. I would struggle with 10 positive things they've achieved (seems reasonable - one a year).
