Tony slaps down Tories

Opinion poll showing New Labour as the new number ones    "We are the champions!"

An opinion poll in today's Independent shows Labour back in front, up three points on last month to 36%. The new figure puts them two percentage points clear of the Tories, who slump four points to 34%.

The latest findings - the first since the Queen's Speech - will be viewed as vindication of the Prime Minister's tough stance on law & order, despite strong opposition from many in his own party as well as the Conservatives and Lib Dems.

The Liberal Democrats themselves, though up three points, are still some way off the two main parties, on 17%. "Others" comprise 13% of the vote, down two percentage points.

The poll was carried out by CommunicateResearch, a member of the British Polling Council, who interviewed 1,004 adults by telephone on 24-26 November. Data were weighted to represent all adults.

Yes, interesting eh?

I wonder if this poll shows exactly why Labour is rising and while still under Blair? I'm delighted of course!

Keep up the good work.

And thanks for your post at my site. Send any more good guys there, any time.

Funny how no-one else picked up on this ... if the polls don't match their perceptions, they just ignore them!

I've given up on Compass. Their censorship is beyond a joke. Criticise Blair and you're allowed on; have a go at those doing the sniping and strangely you're comments are butchered or binned!
