article imageBritish Labour party down to 28% in polls

By Richard van der Draay     Feb 7, 2009 in Politics
An opinion poll shows that the British Labour party’s support has fallen to 28 percent. This is down four points compared with the previous survey just two weeks ago.
The Conservative Party’s popularity has also declined by four percentage points to 40%.
This according to the poll carried out by ICM and published on the Sunday Telegraph website.
The Liberal Democrats, in third place, made real gains of 6 points to 22%.
The polls made it clear that voters are concerned about the performance of the Chancellor Alistair Darling. Fifty-one percent said that he should be sacked and forty-three percent wanted him to remain in his position.
The British Prime Minister Gordon Brown is bound to call a national election by June 2010. The Sunday Telegraph said that the poll results are expected to rule out an early election in 2009.
At first, Labour managed to cut the Conservatives’ lead in the polls when Brown and Darling announced a bank rescue package in October.
The lead of the Tories has since increased while many people have doubts about the costs of the government’s economic stimulus packages.
