Just a matter of turning round the economy, and the floating Guardian voters are mine.

Labour could still claw back the Tories' double-digit lead in the polls if there are signs of economic recovery by the next general election, according to a survey released last night.

The ICM poll for The Guardian suggests 8% of voters currently planning to vote Conservative or Liberal Democrat would consider backing Labour if the economy turned a corner.


No more boom and bust after that. Promise.

Unfortunately dear Snotgoblin, even if the economy does - technically - "turn a corner" in the next 15 months, there will be a lag before it is felt in the real economy and unemployment will continue to rise.

Good bye. You are the weakest link. History will judge you as the biggest loser and worst Prime Minister in British history.

There is no way that anyone can turn the economy around before the next election. It will still be getting worse.

The economy can be made to look better temporarily (i.e. in the run-up to an election). However all methods of doing this, with the exception of a public decapitation of Gordon Brown, will be at the cost of delaying future recovery.

I still dont think it is certain that GB is going. Very likely : but still 15 months to go.

Torys should have lost in 1992 but no-one would vote for a ginger welshman.

And you seriously think the majority of the dorks who vote in general elections are bright enough to know the difference?

I see a real danger that this lot will get in again. Too many thick people about I'm afraid...

Well there is no way I am voting for DC. I voted Tory 6 times : but not next time. He should not have called fathers feckless. I hope he comes to my constituency during the campaign : I would like to have a word with him. Now, where did I put my Team America costume? :confused:

Surely from here there is only one way and that is up whether we have Labour or the Tories. Gordon should be given another term to learn how to give us a growing economy. :wink

When you look at the intellectual lightwieghts inhabiting the Tory shadow cabinet it looks very possible for Labour to win again in 2010 with a small majority or in a minority administration.

Lightweights ? There are more people in the Tories that have run successful businesses or worked in the private sector than Labour can muster. If you really think that Labour have intellectual strength, then I despair. They are career politicians without a clue as to what a business actually is. :laugh

And even if Labour are kicked out at the election, they'll be invited back in 10 to 15 years.

The attention span at the shallow end of the British voter gene pool is only a couple of days or so.

under both Labour and Tory administration:-

mass unemployment
deeper into EU without a chance to have our say about it
growth in welfare state, benefit culture, chav culture
boom and bust economy
increase in non-traditional families
increase in crime, particularly violent crime
jobs moving abroad
mass immigration, race riots
corporate corruption fat cats etc.
cost of living going up
politicians fiddling expenses, dodgy dealings, sleaze
terrorism killing our people

so... why are people not realising yet there's no significant difference between both parties?
and no, the Libdems wouldn't be any better

three parties, different colours... just a merry go round methinks it's time to pull the plug

So how come the Shadow Chancellor seemingly only has work experience of working as a temp data-inputter one summer? It's about time "Dave" put aside his loyalty to his college drinking partner and put Ken or William in charge of the economy role. Because, as it stands, it seems to indicate the Tories don't really relish taking on the disaster (can't blame them, as it happens).

I wouldn't blame them from withdrawing from the election on the basis that Labour should sort out their own mess. Thatcher had to sort out the previous mess after 1979 and what thanks did she get !! :laugh
