Patrick Hennessy over at the Telegraph is hinting at some very bad news for Gordon Brown. It seems the Sunday Telegraph has obtained details of a new opinion poll conducted in 30 of Britain's most marginal parliamentary seats. Patrick says the details will be published later and they will show a totally different picture to last year's Labour lead of 6%.
I'll publish the details (and comment) when they appear.
UPDATE: Those results have come through and the Tories are on 41%, that's 24% ahead of Labour on 17%. What's worse for Brown and Labour is the fact that the LibDems are 1% ahead of them on 18%.
The poll was carried out for Flying Matters and will appear in the Sunday Telegraph. 1,054 voters were polled in key marginal seats.
Jesus. Can it get any worse for Brown? I read somewhere today (I'll provide a link if I remember where I read it) that only a minority of Labour MPs have second jobs to fall back on. This news on the back of recent disasters will no doubt have many a Labour MP wondering how they are going to pay the mortgage.
Gordon is a goner.
