Blair as bad as Thatcher

As an opinion poll shows Blair’s Labour party to be as unpopular as Thatcher’s Tories in late 1981 (following mass unemployment and tax rises during a recession, giving Thatcher personal approval ratings of just 23%, 11 points lower than even Blair’s currently stand), Gordon ups the ante, announcing that Blair will hold talks about a handover. Has Blair actually agreed to this, or is Brown using the same tactics that Charles Clarke tried, following the advice of Yes, Minister? In politics, if you announce something to the press, it becomes true…Where else but UK Polling Report for more? (Actually, Political Betting, now you come to mention it – and again on the bad news for Gordon from the poll.)

  1. Maybe that's why we're taking a tough line on Chavez, in the hope he'll get the hump and invade the Falklands?
