Just about everybody in the press from the BBC to the Guardian to the Daily Telegraph has been talking about how Labour is 3 points behind the Tories in the latest opinion poll, writes Tom Pride in Pride’s Purge.

Actually, it’s not true.

The latest opinion poll – not reported in the mainstream press – has Labour 3 points ahead of the Tories.

But of course that doesn’t fit the narrative, does it?

Facts often don’t.

N.B. Most opinion polls have a margin of error of 3% points – which would put the two parties neck and neck. However, a look at all the most recent opinion polls indicates Labour with a small lead, and a slightly bigger lead in marginal constituencies.
