71% of Scots Think Corbyn’s a Disaster

YouGov Regional Poll Labour

YouGov’s poll of Labour members produced a miserable top-line figure for ardent Corbynistas, showing just 18% of members thought the left-wing leader had done well in the recent round of local and PCC elections. Although that’s not so bad considering he’s the first opposition leader to have lost local seats in over 30 years…

Looking at the regional breakdown, a much bigger problem for Corbyn emerges. Part of the supposed “logic” Corbynistas wheeled out during his election as party leader was that his left-wing, anti-austerity stance could win over the Scotch who had fled to the SNP in droves. Far from Corbyn’s prediction of a crushing victory over the Nats in Hollyrood, Labour managed to lose 13 seats, plummeting behind the hated Tories. As a result, Labour supporters north of the border are not impressed: 71% of them think the party did badly, with 41% believing he did very badly. Inevitably, London felt most positively about the Islingtonian-led party, with 20% approving of Labour’s performance. Corbyn has the same North London metropolitan elite problem as Miliband…

Farage, Like Marmite, is Popular

farage

Nigel Farage is under pressure internally from carping ‘Kippers and Farage-sceptic fellow Brexiteers of the Tory persuasion. UKIP are reminding everyone that although he may be like Marmite, repelling as many as he attracts, he is still more popular than any other politician bar Boris. Guido hopes that if next week the Electoral Commission designates Vote Leave rather than the GO/Leave.EU option,  all concerned will remember that Nigel is the least unpopular political leader in the country. Remember also that Farage – against the media’s expectations – bested Clegg in their head-to-head TV debate.  Nigel should be deployed where he can be most effective. 

At the 1922 Committee meeting this week David Cameron told his backbenchers that they should be telling voters that it was the Conservative Party that gave the people a referendum. In truth it was Nigel Farage who forced the Prime Minister to concede this referendum. Nigel deserves his place in British history for this alone and hopefully for more than that after June 23…

Voters have reverted to their first impression…
