Guardian Poll: Nulabour Support Worst In 24 Years

Economy woes push Labour to 24-year low

Reuters - 42 minutes agoLONDON (
Reuters
) - Prime Minister Gordon Brown's Labour Party suffered another battering in the polls on Tuesday with data showing it falling to a 24-year low.
With turmoil sweeping financial markets, the ICM poll in the Guardian newspaper showed Labour with 29 percent support, 13 points behind Conservatives, as voters said they no longer felt they could trust Labour to protect the economy.
A similar poll by YouGov in the Sunday Times at the weekend put Labour at a 25-year low with 27 percent support, compared with 43 percent for the Conservatives.
The ICM poll will make grim reading for Brown, particularly because it shows the public losing confidence in his party's financial and economic competence.
Despite 10 years as Chancellor under former prime minister Tony Blair, where he was eager to be seen as capable and cautious, Brown now is considered less able to steer Britain through economic woes than his rival Cameron, the poll showed.

It seems that the majority of peoploe are seeing their house prives drop and realise that Brown's miracle was nothing more than debt enslavement. IMO, Brown's performance during U-turn Ali's Budget speech was unsettling. To see a PM giggling and grimacing at every comment made by the opposition was unsettling. Then in chips Balls with his now famous "so what" comment in relation to the fact we have the highest taxes in decades. Those 2 ords could prove to be the battle cry of the Tories in GE.

I'm giving Gordon Brown another six months, before the "men in grey suits" come knocking on his door.

I have a bet on with Betfair that he will be oot before the end of the 2nd Q. Odds weren't that long either.

There's going to be pain whoever is in charge.

I'm in favour of keeping Labour in a bit longer for the joy of the spectacle.

They don't look nearly stupid enough yet.

Oh Labour will still be "in office" but under new management.

The great thing is Brown cant sack Alistair Darling for a few months at least, as it would look like giving in to David Cameron who demanded his head recently.

So Brown will limp on, and thanks to his revealing budget perfomanc he's unable to put Ed "So What" Balls in the post. I think they'll go for Ed's hideous LabourBot wife Yyvette Cooper, who has that perfect combination of incredible thickness and vile abrasiveness

Watch out for the next line of attack from ZaNu Labour on David Cameron for daring to critisise Brown/Darling's economic competence: "The Conservatives are talking us into recession"
