Recent opinion polls have shown a negligible lead for Labour over the Conservatives – with an anomaly from YouGov giving them a 5 point lead.

Best bets are that any lead – if any – Labour does have over the Conservatives is small but this should not cause concern.

The Party is still only a year on from a bad election defeat and it still conjures up in many peoples minds images of Gordon Brown and that final year of power when it was clear the party was lost and simply clinging on.

As the ConDem cuts continue to take hold, growing opposition to them will swing more heavily away from the Lib Dems onto the Conservatives and turn the real debate into one of ‘two alternatives’, 1)Conservative cuts vs. 2)Labour alternative. The Lib Dems increasingly look like a  spent political force whilst they continue to allign themselves wholehaertedly with Coalition policies which are predominantly Conservative Party policies.
