UK Prime Minister's Lead Cut to Just 1 Point

 British Prime Minister Theresa May's Conservatives have a lead of just one percentage point over the opposition Labour Party ahead of the June 8 election, according to a Survation poll conducted for the Mail on Sunday newspaper. YouGov's latest poll has the Tory lead at just three points over Labour.

The polls showed May's lead had fallen sharply from a lead of 12 percentage points in the previous polls published just two weeks ago.

In the new Survation poll, support for the Conservatives stood at 40 percent, down six percentage points and Labour support was at 39 percent, up five points.

I continue to be baffled as to why May called a snap election when she had control albeit narrow control of the Parliament.

The Conservative Party is far from a free market party but it is much better than the lefty Labour Party.

It is quite conceivable that the Conservative Party will not win a majority and that the Labour Party could form a coalition with one of the minor parties and put Labour leader and major league statist  Jeremy Corbyn in as Prime Minister.




  1. Amazing that Corbyn is almost a heartbeat away from 10 Downing Street. He is the most left wing Labour Party leader since Michael Foot.

    Corbyn's Shadow Chancellor of the Exchequer, John McDonnell is a self admitted Marxist.

  2. Jeremy Corbin is rational as far as foreign policy is concerned, so I'm definitely rooting for him. Since I don't live in Britain, its domestic policies are not my concern.

  3. She called an election hoping to increase her majority from 16 to 80-100.

  4. Seems to me that the election of the Labour party and Corbyn as PM would sink Brexit.
