    Another Engineer says:

    Is that the same sense as ‘Housewives favourite’?

    Sounds like either
    a) someone knows the result and is trying to gain financially
    b) someone was manipulating the odds

      The Government just needs to carry on as it is and ignore the labour party…seems to work quite well.

        must be why they are neck and neck in some polls before the cuts and tax rises even start

          Engineer says:

          The polls are irrelevant for the time being. We’re barely five months into a new government, so they aren’t about to pack up any time soon. They are intending a five year term, they say, so the polls only really become relevant in about three-and-a-half years.

          Some of the population are being whipped into a panic over cuts. If it turns out that cuts are not as bad as some are making out (there won’t be any nurses sacked, for example – NHS budgets are ringfenced) then the polls might move the other way. Who knows?

            Also known as the honeymoon period.

            There are no elections next year. It’s all a trick of the light.

            Politicians never pay attention to the Polls.

            Like fuck they don’t.

            And the public will all be pleasantly surprised by the cuts and tax rises.

            That’ll happen.

    Labour doing what it always does when it loses power...lurch to the left says:

    Never underestimated the tendency of the Labour Party to fight the wrong battle at the wrong time with the wrong leader,If “Red Ed” is elected and starts to move the party towards the left to placate his union paymasters Labour could be out of office for the next decade.

    The Coalition may be unpopular with some of the electorate but deep down the public know that the cuts are a necessary evil to correct the profligacy of the last Labour Government and Brown.In 2015 we could be seeing the fruits of that with the economy on the up,unemployment down and the deficit almost wiped out.It shouldn’t be forgotten either that in 2015 it will be the Tories/LibDems who control the government machine and that labour will be on the back foot if Cameron/Osborne’s Gamble with the public finances have paid off. If it hasn’t then who knows but even then it’s unlikely a Labour Party with left wing policies will be electable

        Given how close the election was, does anybody doubt that with Brown out of the way, Miliband could have formed a coalition with the Lib Dems? He could be PM today, but his lack of courage screwed him.

        And no amount of cash will change that.

Tony Blair threatens Ed:

“If you had a strong political lead that was combining the politics of aspiration with the politics of compassion, I still think that’s where you could get a substantial majority…  If I ever do an interview on [the state of the Labour Party], it will have to be at length…”



Left on Left says:

The lefties are attacking because the panellist is a millionaire and lives in a London home worth upwards of two million. Someone had best tell them he’s called Ed Miliband.
