Ed Smashes His Negative Polling Record, Slumps Below Clegg
Osborne’s Shock Positive Approval Rating Grows

Ed Miliband has hit his lowest ever personal rating by gold-standard pollsters ICM for the Guardian. The Labour leader has dropped 14 points in the last month to -39, below even Nick Clegg, who has a rating of -37. Cameron has lost last month’s positive rating of +2, dropping to -5, though Osborne has seen an increase in his own rating from +5 to +6.

The force is strong in that one.

    Its all irrelevant to anyone outside the Westminster gay village

    The Marxist rat is utterly focused upon his core vote: professional benefits scroungers, public sector malingerers, and third world postal vote fraudsters.

    That mass of wretches will elevate the rat to the position of Prime Minister, where he will set about destroying commerce, self reliance, and initiative.

    Cameron will not hold a referendum in 2017, he won’t be in power.

    All the old tory voters that he has pissed off and told that they aren’t wanted will never vote for him again, FACT!

    Even if it was held and we voted no, there is nothing to force cameron to take us out of europe. It just won’t happen. Cameron is a spiv an out and out europhile who is just buying time for the creation of a united states of europe. Just hoping more and more of the older wartime generations die, then its full speed ahead.

    Officer Dibble says:

    What’s surprising? Clegg’s a loser, Miliband’s a weirdo; the economy is recovering nicely and Osborne is chancellor. This is what the Tories have always understood: people may not like them, and people may often enjoy voting against them in minor elections (Euros, locals, by-elections), but if the job they’re doing in office is demonstrably better than the job Labour did when they were in office, people will grudgingly vote for them in reasonable numbers at the general. Right now, the Eds don’t stand a chance in 2015.

    These LEPs are really underfunded. Why doesn’t Ed raid all that’s left in pensions funds and put the lot into the LEPs? get a proper building programme going with a brand new mosque in every town and village in Britain?

    Oh, hold on, he’s not in government yet and is doing his best to avoid it.

If the Scots vote for independence a who slew of Liebore MPs would be gone, including Broon. The biggest known unknown is UKip, will they whoop the hides off the LibLabConners, they will if a majority of the electorate say to the LibLabConners we’re voting UKip. Certain commentators will also get their bums kicked if the Conners don’t win handsomely, no longer a forgone conclusion.

    “Its funny how the only political leader who stood up against Cameron and Hagues attempt to arm Syrian Insurgents many of whom form ISIS is so low in the polls.”?…

    UKIP’s policy was not to go into Syria as well. In fact, they said they shouldn’t arm or assist the ‘Freedom Fighters’ in any way. It makes a change for Labour not to go to War on a whim….

    Here's one for the books says:

    OK, name me ONE Policy that Osborne has instigated that’s actually contributed to the Economic Recovery (if you can call it that)? Tax Cuts? Reduction in VAT?

    I’ve always maintained that with the limited powers he actually has, Guiding the UK Economy is like trying to steer the Titanic with a spoon. IMHO, he’s done nothing to stop Offshoring/Tax Evasion, he’s not reduced VAT, he’s not reduced the Deficit Enough to make any tangible difference (although by his calculations it’ll miraculously disappear by 2017). The only spiel I ever hear is the incessant bleating of ‘Reducing Corporation Tax’-Business Rates would be a better thing to go for to stimulate Local Growth. Bottom line? The GBP themselves have turned the Economy around. They’re the ones who’ve suffered stagnant wages, high inflation, increased rents, etc. Osborne is merely an empty suit. Chuck-in HS2, increased spending on the EU, increased pressure on Housing, the NHS and Schools (which aren’t accounted for financially) and things for the GBP are hardly ‘getting better’ or ‘Recovering’.

    The wartime generation were the ones who voted for the welfare state in 1945. That is to say they gave up their freedom and ours for a mess of pottage, they sought to live at someone else’s expense and were quite happy to abdicate their personal responsibility to government agencies. No good looking up to them for anything at all. Let’s be clear about something else, before the war they were prepared to sell out anybody at all to appease Hitler and war was forced on them, it was not undertaken courageously on a moral principle no matter what the propagandists said at the time or since.

    I can see why NI-gel l has gained votes by daring to use the I word, and has gained support from disgruntled Tories along the south east coast and in the villages of Kent, Suffolk, Hants, etc and will have an impact in some council areas but nationally they don’t have a serious manifesto to run what’s left of the UK.

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
