So in the past 24 hours YouGov published a poll showing Labour have cut the Tories lead to 3 points & was predicting the result the general election being a hung parliament, this has caused something of a stir, it’s of course caused a stir amongst Labour activists, as if one poll which might be a rogue poll should cause a stir with any pundit or activist, I mean we all know the only poll which really matters is election day a week today.
If the YouGov poll is at all approximately correct with its seat projection then it would likely mean Jeremy Corbyn would keep his job as Labour leader, but wouldn’t be entering Downing Street as Prime Minister, as though the Tories would be short of an overall majority, they’d still have over 300 seats & could likely form a coalition with the Democratic Unionists & the Ulster Unionists & if needed there’s always whatever Lib Dem MPs remaining to make up the numbers, it’s noticeable the Lib Dem manifesto might have pitched left but the Lib Dems have ruled out any coalition with Labour, thus one can only conclude they’re not counting out a possible coalition with the Tories if the Tories require the Lib Dems to prop them up in government.
The Lib Dems pitching left yet more likely to jump into government with the Tories, oh doesn’t this sound all very familiar, déjà fucking vu 2010 General Election, proof enough you can’t ever trust the Lib Dems & a very fucking good reason a week today not to vote Lib Dem!
Not just with the most recent YouGov poll which has been causing a stir, it’s pretty obvious from all the polling data that that the gap between Labour & the Tories is narrowing, I’ve heard that the private polling Labour has commissioned has shown hung parliamentary territory is likely the GE2017 result, but for Labour have any sniff of being in government then Labour would need to get upwards of 275 seats to have enough seats to form a coalition government with the SNP, Plaid Cymru & the Greens, not saying that’s not possible, it’s certainly possible if Jeremy Corbyn keeps on doing what he’s been doing, you know talking to the people the way he has rather then bullshitting peeps with soundbites as Theresa May has been doing.
If the Tories lose this general election, it’s entirely Theresa May’s fault, she needn’t of called this snap election, which from the off has had echoes of the February 1974 General Election which brought down the Tory government of Edward Heath. Even if Theresa May manages to win this general election, the word out of Tory campaign HQ is that anything less then a 50 seat majority would be considered a failure & Theresa May would be history.
Fuck knows if the YouGov poll is at all accurate & I’ve learnt long ago not to read too much into opinion polls, considering where Labour seemed too be at the beginning of this election campaign & where Labour are currently, I’m certainly more cautiously optimistic about a week today.
