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…


  1. 1
    Gordon the Medicated says:

    No man is an Iceland

  2. 2
    Gordon Brown says:

    My Pirate name is Gordon Brown

  3. 3
    The Golem says:

    Had the 1006 just come out of the pub?

  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?

  5. 5
    Bob Crowe says:

    and after all the money we’ve showered on this bloke…….

  6. 6
    David Cameron (Leader of the Nasty Party) says:

    I wonder,should I become Leader of the Labour Party?

  7. 7

    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.

  8. 8
    Aunty Matter says:

    Here are the scores for Gordon Brown


    Total for the one eyed loon from Fife FUCKING ZERO

  9. 9

    Where’s all our gold?
    It would be really helpful if you had left a map with a cross on it.

    And your patch should be worn over your bad eye. That’s why you’ve been thinking it looks dark out.

  10. 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

  11. 11
    Well it's a thought says:

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

  12. 12
    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”.

  13. 13
    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).

  14. 14
    robbie says:

    he won’t understand that- he can’t count.

  15. 15
    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.

  16. 16
    Archer Karcher says:

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

  17. 17
    Polls are always so accurate! says:

    “Who the hell did they poll?
    A Wallace and Grommet convention?
    The Milkybar Kid reunion club?
    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.

  18. 18

    Should have bought some turd polish.

  19. 19

    You forgot to say:

    Vote UKIP.

    Just for balance – you’re welcome.

    I hate Parliament so much it hurts says:

    “Would be fun to meet in person”

    Especially if, by happy coincidence, you happened to have a machete in your hands..

    That’s the figures for Oxford, what about the rest of the country?

  22. 22

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

  23. 23
    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.

  24. 24
    Cabin Boy Jim says:

    Don’t you come near me, Cap’n.

  25. 25 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.

  26. 26
    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.

  27. 27
    I don't need no doctor says:

    Alan Johnson for chancellor!

  28. 28
    Tellitasitis says:

    Good news for DC. People tend to vote for a PM at general elections these days not a party.

  29. 29
    BBC News says:

    We haven’t planned our election campaign, I mean, coverage yet though.

  30. 30
    Gordon the Medicated says:

    O% is an increase

  31. 31
    Monty Carlo says:

    You’re more likely to be found in Iceland than in Westminster, Gordon.

  32. 32
    Imman Jones says:

    This copy of Charlie Hebdo is a riot!

  33. 33
    Red Ed says:

    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.

  34. 34
    That means you, guv says:

    Keep taking the polls.

  35. 35
    AC1 says:

    Gold? He invested it in something far more precious! He bought Euros.

    ed martin says:

    smoke gets in your eyes – ask the S Yorks police

  38. 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.


  39. 39
    Tron says:

    The crowd loved him at the Olympics.

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

    taC eht abbaJ says:

    “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…

    taC eht abbaJ says:

    The little rag head did not pray deeply enough that day and Allah smite him, or the other way of looking at the situation is, don’t fuck with the Stars and Stripes…

  43. 43
    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.

  44. 44
    Thick as a Planck says:

    Whoever laced the flag with cyanide deserves a Purple Heart.

    Put the word about ….all US and UK flags have been treated.

    Psephany says:

    Not so many of them are on the electoral register. Legally

  49. 49
    Little Ed says:

    I am great fun to be with. I can talk about relationships, or pre-distribution, or my latest bedside reading material. I can also tell jokes. Have you heard this one? It’s really funny. A one-eyed Scotsman, an overweight English bully, and a J*w were all sitting in the Treasury….

  50. 50
    Concerned says:

    What happened to the flag?

  51. 51
    Virgin Master says:

    Suicide maybe, but stupidity trumps it. NO virgins.

  52. 52
    Poppy says:

    Should have run a poll of Alistair Darling verses Cameron or even better David Davis verses Cameron or Farage v Cameron. Or my pussy v Millitwat?

  53. 53
    Pop Ulace says:

    We know the ending.

    of course he is not an island mcmental

    unlike you not all of us would like to be the size of croydon with geysers of lava and magma spouting from various regions of our topography .

    has nurse been to see you yet this afternoon …

  55. 55
    Gooey Blob says:

    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.

  56. 56
    the savant says:

    gold ?

    well it s not in fort knox that s for sure.

    they sold all that to the chinese as an inducement /bribe for them to keep buying usa govt. bonds when the west threatened to blow up in 2007.

    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

  63. 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.

  64. 64
    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.)

  65. 65
    Owen Jones says:

    Always go for a pint with Cameroon. Milband being a socialist – someone else always pays not him.

  66. 66
    Tarquin Millivanilli says:

    Cameron has a bigger cock also.

  67. 67
    Cressida's Dick says:

    Coming next week Populus poll ‘Is Dave more popular than a fart in a spacesuit?’.

  68. 68
    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”!

  69. 69
    Balls says:

    I’m look butch in a Nazi uniform.

    W.W. says:

    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.

    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.

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

    Anonymous says:

    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:

    “Understands people like me – Who the hell did they poll?”
    Presumably at least 26 Oxford educated millionaires.

    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.

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
