A ComRes poll for tomorrow’s Independent has the Conservatives 13% ahead. Yes, unlucky for Labour 13%! Labour is down 6% on its previous ComRes rating.
Is this a permanent turning against Gordon Brown? If so, there must be a good chance that Labour will replace him before too long. Their problem is the lack of obvious alternatives. David ‘we’ll be in power for ten more years’ Miliband? Or Ed Balls – master of the non-election? I think we can safely say that Mr Darling won’t be in the running.
