National Polls Going Our Way
Labour has cut the Conservatives’ poll lead according to the latest survey by Opinium for the Observer, published at the weekend. The Tories still hold a 12-point advantage over Labour but their lead is down four points since last weekend. The Conservatives now stand on 41%, down one point on a week ago, while Labour is up three on 29%. The Liberal Democrats are down one point on 15%. Opinium’s latest data suggests Labour may be stemming the flow of both Labour Leavers to the Tories and Remainers to the Lib Dems. Some 66% of Labour Leavers now plan to vote Labour, up nine points compared with a week ago, and 48% of Labour Remainers are planning to vote for the party, sharply up on last week. See Guardian Report.
What We Stand For
Our manifesto will be published next weekend. Meanwhile there is a good indication from the 2017 Manifesto and the Press Releases which come out daily. The Party has also recently issued a useful briefing on Key Messages. Attached.
Corbyn Rally? – Yes but when?
It is highly likely that in his whirlwind of non-stop campaigning Jeremy Corbyn will be making an appearance in York or Scarborough or both. However these events are kept under tight wraps until shortly before they are due. As soon as we get any information we’ll pass it on but it would be a good idea to keep your ear to the ground using social media. You might find out before us. Please let me know if you do hear anything.
