Labour lead slashed by 4 points in as many hours!

At this rate there will be a Conservative government by the end of the week!

Actually no, I just bring news of another poll from ICM in the Sunday
Mirror that has Labour on 39, the Conservative's on 33 and the Liberal
Democrats on 18.

Poll junkies tend to take ICM and YouGov seriously but it is
interesting to see how far they diverge today. That said it is the
silly season and a silly time to do a poll. That does beg the question
though, why are all these polls going on in August when that normally
doesn't happen?

Kind regards

I bet you wouldn't be querying polls in August, if they showed a Tory lead?
Wasn't there a novel/film called 'A cold wind in August' seems right somehow.
