Statistic of the day:

Where would you like to see more of your taxpayers money spent? (Note, respondants could give more than one answer)

Cutting Crime 47%
Education 35%
NHS 31%
Pensions / Senior Citizens 30%
Transport 29%
Defence 3%

Just a selection but interesting I thought - it really does support my theory that law & order and education will be the big two themes of this election (in which case, Labour and Charles Clarke don't stand a chance). In many ways you might have expected the top three (as they always poll the top in lists of voters concerns) but the next two interest me a lot - a real feeling that pensions are heading for crisis point and that transport is now neglected under Labour. I hope the Conservatives are ready to take both those policy bulls by the horn!
