UK PM May's lead widens ahead of June 8 election - ORB poll

UK PM May's lead widens ahead of June 8 election - ORB poll”

Analysis by Labour suggests that 10.8 million pensioners may lose out if the benefit is restricted to those eligible for pension credit - although the Conservatives have not set out how the means test would work. "Don't tell us it's a pay rise", he said.

The intuition here is this: political parties have information that we do not.

After hosting a roundtable discussion with pensioners in Lincoln on Saturday, Corbyn was asked if he would keep the British people safe as prime minister. Canvassers feed data back to the central machine, which is used to inform voting decisions.

"The mask has finally slipped", John McDonnell, a lawmaker who would be finance minister if Labour win the election, said in a statement.

"I could have stayed on doing that job for another couple of years and not called an election". That is to say, they are visiting different places to campaign.

"It's a dereliction of both her duty to this country and our duty to our planet".

To understand the pattern a bit better, let us start with this chart - which is a bit like a swingometer. Seats near the dotted middle line are more marginal.

Party upsets were not the sole reason behind May's loss of a smashing victory and confusing expectations, the sudden rise of Jeremy Corbyn, hardline leftist and Labour leader played a significant role in turning tables. But those personal characteristics as a tough woman blown out of proportion began to fall apart when the Conservative Party manifesto was released just recently.

But when the entire campaign was focused on Theresa May the individual rather than on the Conservative Party, its strengths and its prominent personalities, it became a May event that now may not happen as the campaign team had planned.

Labour's plans would see the 45p rate of income tax kick in for people earning £80,000 instead of the current £150,000, with a new 50p rate for people earning more than £123,000.

Immigration remains a key issue with May accused of not being able to reduce migration as promised during her years as Home Secretary and even now unable to put a figure on how many migrants would be permitted to come here.

The early May strategy is simple to read: it was in line with the polls at the time.

Our poll puts the Tories on 45 per cent, down one from last week, and Labour up two to 34 per cent.

"I don't think Jeremy Corbyn needs my advice", Sanders continued.

These are the people who don't give a damn that house prices are at the most unaffordable level in history while the Tories oversee the lowest house building levels since the 1920s.

Mr Johnson told the Press Association: "I thought it was really spine-chilling to hear Jeremy Corbyn announce that all Labour's support for our nuclear deterrent, all Labour's support for our Armed Forces was completely meaningless because when it came to the business of defending this country he wouldn't do it".

Since then, though, there has been a squeeze on the Tory lead. Another poll this week said the lead was down to three points. But the pattern, such as it is, since the manifesto launch is as below. "Probably not Labour", Grant wrote in a column that appeared last week in the Chronicle.

For the first time in weeks, "Monsieur Zen" looked rattled.
