Standard Cameron v Miliband Poll

Well this one has got people chatting this afternoon. Guido’s favourite figure is that more people would rather not go for a drink with either Miliband or Cameron, but the other figures are rather intriguing.

Labour are ahead, but not thanks to their leader.

Tories are behind, but it could be a lot worse without Dave.

The recent plots have been on the wrong team…

      Incumbency is a big negative for Tory PMs in mid-term, but that reverses to become a small positive at election time. Miliband clearly isn’t building the huge mid-term lead he needs to improve on Labour’s 2010 seat tally.

      The question is, who else do Labour have? I look at their front bench and only see frightening reminders of Brown’s time in office.

        Lets be honest Milliband is a disaster, and the rest of the front bench are no better. They are the same shower who got us into this mess, they think they just need to hang on until the next election and they will get back in.Well without a change of personnel and a few new ideas they wont ! Ha Ha.

      and what is the significance of the last ” six” ??

      does the number six have a biblical connotation???

      if so perhaps ot should have been 1….666

      As a matter of interest where does Gideon come in those categories and Borus, David Davis, Ed Balls and David Milliband, I say this because of the prospective Cons ganging up to oust Dave Boy

  4. 4

    Understands people like me – clear Miliband win.

    Who the hell did they poll?
    A Wallace and Grommet convention?
    The Milkybar Kid reunion club?
    Leonard,Sheldon, Howard and Raj?

      Sandra in Accounts says:

      I think they tracked down first generation immi_grants whose parents were Marxist intellectuals & the father figure fought for the Red Army.

      And the Notting Hill branch of the Inheritance Tax Avoiders Association.

      I think the control group was “Public Sector Workers Who Have Made a Million Out Of London Property Investments”.

      “Who the hell did they poll?

      Leonard,Sheldon, Howard and Raj?”

      They may have well as done, given the shite that goes into polls and the even bigger pile of shite that comes out of them once the statiticians voodoo has been applied.

      No, they asked normal voters. Outside the BBC and Guardian nobody thinks Milliband is any good.

      At last, you’ve found your true vocation, fck off and lets get a real Conservative in the Conservative party.

    I know one thing i would like to meet both cameron and milliband and talk about the problems the UK have at the moment, which is a lot.

      Most people blame the banks not Brown because the BBC say so.

        Sid says:

        I agree, Brown spent and spent and spent 2000-2007 in the “boom” (despite this “boom” real incomes fell, people used their homes as cash points, all new jobs went to EC migrants and the “client state” exploded with big increases in the numbers on benefits incl 16-21 year old kids, banks lent and lent and lent 125% mortgages all round) and then the crash hit in 2008 and he spent a lot more (remember all that “I saved the world” by spending borrowed and taxpayers money. The BOE also printed a tonne of money in the 2008-2010 period. As a result the economy “grew” in 09/10 just so liebour could say the economy was growing when the tories took over and that they caused the recession and that liebour would have hard choices because of the tory mismanagement of the economy. That is what is happening and all the same liebour faces are sitting waiting to get back into power on the back of the unions’ cash.

        As a result Osborne gets booed at the olympics meanwhile the man in charge 1997-2010 gets cheered – as far as Brown and Balls say: “it is all going to plan”!

  9. 10

    As i do wonder sometimes who is advising them as their plans do not take into account the people they need to put them in the position they hold

    Polls are always so accurate! says:

    More MSM crapola from this blog I see. Polls are so newsworthy! well to the media organisations that pay for them anyway.

    Labour are ahead with people who won’t actually vote in a GE.
    Pollsters factoring the “don’t knows” in as Labour voters and under-representing more likely to vote provinvial, middle-age and middle-class voters (Tory voters).

    • 63
      Mitt Romney says:

      Well, d-u-u-h-h-h, that was my point when I said 47% percent of the people wouldn’t vote for me in any event. The question is whether they will vote, period. My money, of course, is on the fact that they won’t, since they so seldom do. The same holds true in the UK as well as in the US– the ones who are “most likely” to vote “Left” are the ones least likely to vote at all. Trust polls that claim to represent the response of those most likely to vote.

      See, the difference between me and Obama is that, truly, he says stupid things, and stupidly, I say true things.

    Sophie says:

    I am surprised that Cameron has done so well.

    Afterall, he could not win an election against McMental.

    Makes you wonder how badly he will do in 2015 now that the Tory voter base & the undecided voters actually know him.

    Useless git.

      You forgot to say:

      Vote UKIP.

      Just for balance – you’re welcome.

      “Useless git.”

      Not as useless as crash test dummy Farage who was beaten into third place against Bercow by some idiot in a clown costume. Not even Camoron is that useless…

    Cameron beats Miliband no problem, who couldn’t? Cameron v a more charismatic and less nerdy drip, big problem.

    • 38
      W.W. says:

      The problem for labour is they don’t have anyone more Charasmatic or less nerdy.

      Much as I think Cameron is a useless PM, I can imagine having a laugh with him over a pint.

      I doubt Miliband has ever cracked a genuine spontanious joke in his life, it is not in his DNA.

        Ed Miliband says:

        OK, maybe you wouldn’t want to hang out with me all that much, but during NFL season, I’m the man to see if you’re a degenerate punter at the bookie’s, since I know all there is to know about New England. (I may not know all that much about Olde England, but there you are.)

          Hi Ed, nice to hear from you.

          I have just been watching your pri1k of a brother on Channel 4 news.

          He was with the CEO of O2 and Sainsbury’s, talking with young people about youth unemployment.

          The question running through my mind is what you two pr1cks know about starting at the bottom (ie stacking shelvess, or flipping burgers etc) to think you can advise young people starting out in the world of work?

          The CEO was talking about how he started his working career flipping burgers and how muchhe learnt about the world of work, and about people in general.

          Maybe the fact you have never done such ‘menial’ jobs is one of the reasons you are both the complete wankers you are.

          Any way Ed you utter pr1ck, have a nice evening.

          W.W.

      no, words if used correctly can be a much nastier weapon

        I hate Parliament so much it hurts says:

        How do you chop Dave/Ed’s limbs off with words? Anyway, neither of them would listen. After all, one of Dave’s cabinet ministers resigned, in front of Dave; to his face, and Dave nonchalantly expressed gratitude and told him to carry on with the job.

        Nope. Words are all well and good, but with Dave or Ed, it’s got to be a machete.

    This just made my week says:

    The irony is too delicious for words.

    A P*kistani protestor has died after inhaling smoke from burning U.S. flags during a rally against the anti-Islam film Innocence of Muslims. Abdullah Ismail died in Mayo hospital in Lahore having complained of feeling unwell during the angry demonstrations.

    UKIP.i.am.awake says:

    Will protect British jobs Miliband 37.

    I presume ‘protecting’ means by pricing private sector jobs out of foreign markets via predistribution and replenishing the bloated public sector, paid for by higher borrowing and debt.

    I am tough, I knifed me own brother to get a higher salary and more power and influence.

    I’ll protect British jobs, owned by unions, and I understand the common unthinking working class git – he just wants to drink, shag and watch footie.

    The only Poles that matter are the ones we can bus back to vote in the election.

      Velocity says:

      It is difficult to generalise, but many Poles seem to dislike Labour-style socialism, being deeply socially conservative. They are not too impressed with a party which sucks up to islamists either.

    Has it occurred to you that the two facts are connected? Cameron is more appreciated, even by those like me, – past members of the Conservative Party, but as things are with him as leader we shall look elsewhere when it comes to election time.

    FlipC says:

    Merely out of curiosity I wonder how many of those 26 “Don’t Know” responses to “A man of faith” should really be “Don’t Care”?

    I like pubs but can't afford to go there says:

    More people would rather not go for a drink with either Miliband or Cameron because the drink tax is too high. You need a small mortagage to buy a round in a pub these days.

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
