Tories open nine-point lead as Labour drops to 19-year low
Wow. The Tories went up a lot?
Actually, no. The Conservatives have gained 1%, Labour have dropped 4% and the LibDems have gone up 5%. How this squares with the article saying
The poll shows former Labour voters switching to the Conservatives and Liberal Democrats in almost equal numbers
is not quite clear to me. Anyway, here’s an alternative headline for you:
LibDem support increases 30%
The same poll, incidentally, found that 72% of people think that
government policies such as backing for action in Iraq and Afghanistan have made this country more of a target for terrorists
while only 20% believe the Government tells the truth on terror.
