Labour Takes Seven-Point Lead Over Tories In New Poll
Labour party has extended its lead over the Conservatives to 7 points, a new poll revealed.

A Survation poll commissioned by trade union GMB, which accurately predicted last year’s election result, puts Jeremy Corbyn’s  Labour party on 44 per cent, with Theresa May’s Conservative Party dropped three points to 37 per cent and the Lib Dems notching only 9 per cent.

Survation / GMB poll:

Labour: 44%

Conservative: 37%

Liberal Democrats: 9%

SNP: 3%

UKIP: 3%

Greens: 2%

Half of the voters said they expect the UK to slide into a recession within the next two years and 62 per cent said they want this week’s Spring Budget Statement to announce a real-terms increase in spending on public services.

According to Survation, which was one of the most accurate polling firms during the 2017 general election, some 48 per cent who voted the Conservatives say cuts have gone too far.

Tim Roache, general secretary of the GMB union who commissioned the survey, said: “We’ve all seen that it’s not working.”

“Public services are at breaking point, our infrastructure is creaking and there is no Government plan to create jobs. This poll shows voters think the Government’s cuts have gone too far,” Roache added: “Austerity has failed. In his Spring Budget Statement, the Chancellor has a choice.”

“The choice is to stop the cuts and invest in our economy and public services, or continue with a failed policy the electorate don’t like, don’t want and will roundly reject at the next election.” he added.

“As these figures show, the policies Labour will deliver are giving people hope and a belief that things can be different.”
