No sooner had I published my latest article, showing the Tories’ poll lead decreasing by five points in two days, than I received this via Twitter:

It seems some people have no sense of reality whatsoever.

For many months, after the attempted ‘Chicken Coup’ in the Parliamentary Labour Party took Labour from equal footing with the Tories to its worst poll ratings for many years, This Site received regular comments from naysayers, claiming that Jeremy Corbyn was causing huge harm to the party and should go – because the poll ratings were so bad.

Now, we are being told that Labour is facing “a heavy defeat” in the election – and we should ignore the poll ratings.

Who are these people? Fools? Idiots? Pranksters?

Long-term readers of This Site will know that I don’t pay much attention to the polls in any case – they are too easily-rigged to say whatever their funder wants. I have readers who are signed up to take part in YouGov polls but have never been asked a political question, which tends to indicate that the organisation chooses its respondents very carefully – does it not?

But if the trend they show changes suddenly and massively, it does indicate that something is going on.

At the very least, it says the poll-watching naysayers should silence themselves.
