This blog is a political blog from a left-of-centre perspective. This is not specifically a party political blog, but does have a Lib Dem orientation. Constructive enagement with radical liberals, social democrats / democratic socialists and greens is particularly welcomed.

Guardian/ICM Poll

ICM / Guardian weekend poll (1002 adults) :

Tories 37%
Labour 34%
Lib Dems 21%

Tories need 7% swing to unseat Labour who would be the largest party assuming uniform polling across the country [which never happens].

So much for the 'meltdown' in Lib Dem support much predicted by Marcus Wood (Torbay Tory PPC). He really is the 'Mystic Meg' of Torbay politics !

And, that's before the election of the new leader and the impact he might make ! This, of course, comes on top of overturning the 11,000 Labour majority in the Dunfermline and West Fife by-election.

Just need to start puncturing the Tory attempts at being all things to all people now. The evidence of flip-flopping on direction becomes more evident by the day, viz neo-cons when in Washington and moderate 'liberals' (sic) at home. Yeah right !
