Polls put parties in their box

The latest batch of opinion polls helps us to confirm what is happening in British politics. As we all know a single poll is often unreliable, but a series of them which demonstrates a trend is worthy of note. It is clear now that the Conservatives are in the 40-43 box, Labour 33-38 and the LibDems ... well, all over the place. There has been a lot of noise being made about the grey-vote swinging behind Cameron. I personally believe the most important findings of the recent YouGov poll is that the Conservative have a 1% lead over Labour amongst young voters too. Why isn't more being made of that? Aren't we always being told that young people aren't Tory?

Labour's decline in my view is due to 2 issues.

The Conservatives firming up on policy areas.

The average homeowner finding house prices stagnate, household prices and taxes eating up average income, and credit starting to dry up. People not feeling the cash in their pocket, the way they had for 10 years.

It's a case of people realising that Brown is not as new or interesting as was originally thought. He is same old Brown. All the reasons why he would never have beaton Balir in a leadership contest are starting to become apparent.

Mrs.Thatcher had a phantom pregnancy and gave birth to fraternal twins: Tony Blair and Gordon Brown. What kind of a "Labour" leader would, after ten years in power, have managed to double the number of homeless people? Blair, Brown, Cameron et al worship the same god - the market. There is no real difference between any of them.
