Times Poll

close

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  • Factual information might be outdated.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...

As usual, you read it here first. Though the news from the lastest Times poll seems to be worse that I had expected, with both the Lib Dems and the Conservatives making losses. I can’t really even begin to understand what it is that Labour have done in the past few weeks to make potential voters switch allegiance to them – I can only suggest that, perhaps, three percent of the population have gone quite mad. I can’t think of any reason why anybody, traditional Labour supporter or not, would want Labour in power again with a huge majority. Governments with big majorities cannot be as effectively challenged, and so the result is bad policies.

Anyway, this is only a poll, and only of 1,518 people. So it might not be as bad as it seems. Hopefully.

This 317th post was filed under: Election 2005.
