Poll positions: You can see that public opinion of the Labour Party leapt up, almost from the moment the news media were forced to give equal time to all parties in their election coverage in 2017.

We’ve been here before.

On the eve of the 2017 general election, Labour was 22 points behind the Conservatives, according to one poll. Another, days after the election, put Labour six points ahead.

That’s what happens when our news media are forced to spend a month being impartial, under threat of legal action.

So today’s Guardian comment is no cause for concern at all. It states:

In a post on his UK Polling Report blog yesterday Anthony Wells listed the five August polls then available, all giving the Tories a lead over Labour varying from three points to nine points. “We’re now at a point where the most recent polls from all the regular polling companies show the Conservatives back ahead,” Wells wrote.

Since then there have been two more polls giving the Tories a big lead. Last night YouGov released a second August poll, putting the Conservatives on 30% and Labour on 21%. And today Kantar has released a poll suggesting the Tories are 14 points ahead. It puts them on 42%, with Labour on 28%, the Lib Dems on 15% and the Brexit party on 5%.
