Tonight’s YouGov poll for the Sunday Times has topline figures of CON 38%, LAB 40%, LDEM 11%. We’ve had four daily YouGov polls from 2012 now, so we can get a better handle on the position. Three out of the four have shown a Labour lead of two points, with the Conservatives on 38-39%, Labour on 40-42%, the Lib Dems on 9-11%. It looks as though the Conservative boost from the European veto has faded somewhat, with Labour back in the lead, but it hasn’t disappeared completely (yet).

    Objectivity with regard to the SNP or anything related to thm is not to be found in the pages of The Scotsman.

    “So that’s why government debt is heading higher, and trying to stop it is like Knut trying to stop the tide come in (and I believe he was only kidding). There’s no way we can or should go back to a world in which government debt is 40% of GDP and bank lending is effectively unrestricted.

    Just where it will settle is an interesting question that no-one has the answer to, but it sure looks more like 100% than 40%.”

    I think you are absolutely correct in your analysis. I suspect government debts will end up being in the 80-90% for a long time to come. BUT a lot depends on decisions totally out of the UK’s control. China, Russia and India, plus many other fast growing parts of the world, will have to start buying our goods and services, so we can service some of the debts we owe some of these countries. If the trade gap continues as it is, with Europe and the US in a fragile state, then we could see a real crisis on our hands. Even in China they are starting to build up debts in some areas, as they can’t get the money to satisfy expansion. See here.


    @”Objectivity with regard to the SNP or anything related to thm is not to be found in the pages of The Scotsman.”

    You mean they insisted on telling the Scottish public about a report written by Professor John Curtice of Strathclyde University, and published by Electoral Reform Society Scotland.

    No, that is not what I mean.
