UK: Labour way ahead in national polls, post-Chequers

Jack BuckbyRebel Contributor

The latest polls show that Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn is way ahead of Conservative PM Theresa May in the polls – but it’s not because there’s a sudden surge in Labour support.

Actually, it’s a result of some Tory voters temporarily going back to UKIP to express their objections to Theresa May’s Chequers deal on Brexit.

So what does this mean?

A Labour win in a hypothetical general election? A UKIP surge?

In my opinion… neither.

KEITH BARNES 19hr. ago, The only thing that will save the UK is RIOTS, no matter who is in power. (This statement assumes that UKIP is dead.)

Keith, would you re- post the Military Song, " What a way to die"? I can’t find where you posted it a few days ago.

Angela Merkel and now Theresa May… Both inheriting the the stupidity of the winds they have sown in their political careers…

How I wish the spirit of Maggie Thatcher would visit May, because she is giving women politicians worldwide a real setback…

If Theresa May survives long enough, she will make a Brexit in name only deal with the EU. Watch out for the riots.
Corbyn, leader of the Labour Party only because he stated that he wanted to leave the EU, a lie, but it won him the leadership.
UKIP would be the best bet if one could be certain that people would vote for them.
The thing that surprises me the most is the silence of Nigel Farage but he has Trump’s ear. Look for these surprises.
