I will dive into some of the more recent polls shortly, but every pollster now has a double digit lead for the Tories.
Opinium has the Tories leading by 19 points.
Any rational person should have expected this.
As noted a bit earlier, Jeremy Corbyn Goes for Broke With Last Desperate Act.
Corbyn managed to change the election from a referendum on Brexit to a referendum on Corbyn.
Labour's Radical Plan Highlights
- Increase government spending by a massive £82.9bn a year, about 4pc of GDP, all paid for by rising taxes
- A £400bn “national transformation fund”, which would “add to the government’s debt” but isn’t in the headline figures.
- Nationalisation of rail, water, energy, bus, mail, and broadband companies
- Seizure of 10 percent of the shares in every big UK company and handing the shares to workers
- Raise the corporate tax rate to 26% from 19%
- An £11bn windfall tax on the oil and gas sector
- Free broadband internet for everyone
- Free shelter for the homeless
- Super-rich tax rate
- Tax on second homes
- Raise £8bn via a Financial Transactions Tax
- Higher inheritance tax
- Force landlords to sell homes to tenants at a "fair" price as determined by Labour
No one in their right mind should vote for that.
Without a Doubt, Boris Johnson United the Tory Party
On November 21, I proposed Without a Doubt, Boris Johnson United the Tory Party
Upon further reflection, I am wondering if I have that correct.
Perhaps this is more accurate: Without a Doubt, Jeremy Corbyn has United the Tory Party.
I will crunch some possible numbers on this a bit later.
For now I will stick with my 88 seat majority for the Tories as noted in Looking Like a Tory Blowout and Complete Collapse of Labour.
