Leaderless Labour level peg the Coalition

The most curious finding of today's Guardian / ICM poll is that Labour and the Tories are level pegging on voting intentions at 37% - despite Cameron's policies being popular with voters and Labour not having had a leader since the grossly incompetent and failed Brown departed in ignominy.

Perhaps this is the answer. Voters are still fed up with the political class, with professional politicians, and a leaderless Labour party has the virtue of being 'not the coalition' without the vice of a leader to loathe.

By next month when Labour's leadership debacle draws to a close, I predict that the first poll after the new leader is chosen will show a substantial drop in Labour's support. Particularly if that oaf Brown releases his 'I certainly was in the right'1 book at the same time as a reminder of just how awful they were ...

1 From Pink Floyd's 'Money';

"Hu Huh! I was in the right!"
"Yes, absolutely in the right!"
"I certainly was in the right!"
"You was definitely in the right. That geezer was cruising for a bruising!"
"Yeah!"
"Why does anyone do anything?"
"I don't know, I was really drunk at the time!"

1. This is a Guardian Poll nuf said

2. The BBC are churning out a daily dose of misery about the 'cuts'

3. The deficit is not 'real' to 80% of the population

4. 80% of the population do not see Government money as their money its the Governments, slowing the rate of growth of the State is just the State being mean.

5. The Labour intention to vote is about right and equates to their client State.
