Swing Update

Hold up! Before you read on, please read this...

This post was published more than 13 years ago

I keep old posts on the site because I often enjoy reading old content on other people's sites. Not everything that is old is bad. It can be interesting to see how views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured.

But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views might very well have changed in the 13 years since I wrote this post. I have written some very silly things over the years, many of which I find pretty embarrassing today.
  • This post might use language in ways which I would now consider highly inappropriate or offensive.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.

Okay. Consider yourself duly warned. Read on...

Today’s swing figure:

» 1.62% swing to the Conservatives «

Two new polls today: ICM/Guardian has 40/33, and Populus/Times has 40/31. The magic forumla says it’s 39/32. Whichever way you look at it, Mr Howard is failing to do anything at all convincing.

I don’t understand why the great unwashed masses apparently dislike the government and Mr Blair, and yet are still telling pollsters that they will vote Labour. Maybe I’m just a bit thick.

This 544th post was filed under: Election 2005.
