Labour trailing in british local elections

In a week where Brexit appears to have caused a dip in political morale in UK national elections, the T???ories have suffered another blow after polls showed Labour on the way to a big win in Scotland and more recent polls?????? showed Labour would lose votes in some key parts of England as well as Wales.

As a result, the Prime Minister’s decision to stay on in Downing Street is seen as being in direct contradiction of his promise to renegotiate Britain’s EU membership after the June 2017 referendum and as a result the Tories would benefit from a wave of defections from their traditional base if they failed to retain power in 2017 and May’s cabinet became even more divided.

One poll carried out by ICM, said to be respected by all of Britain’s political parties, showed Labour on course to win 12 seats in England and Wales, with Mr Cameron’s party on course for 34 seats. However, the survey indicated an even bigger challenge for the Conservatives if a Tory majority was secured after the general election and May was re-elected for a fourth time, as was expected after such a victory in 2015.

In a sign of how long it will take the Lib Dems and Conservatives to form a government on the back of any defeat, a poll released on Monday morning suggested that the SNP could be on course to fo?????rm the largest single party government in UK politics for at least the next 20 years.

According to the poll, which the Independent described as “caught in a dead heat” with the Labour and Liberal Democrat parties, the SNP currently lead the Tories in support among a national sample of voters by 45 points with the Lib Dems at 29 and the SNP at 12. It was put to the British public that one-third (33pc) do not consider themselves to be “left”, the lowest level of support recorded in the survey.

Another poll released earlier this week showed the parties struggling to establish an image of being viable political parties after a series of controversies, including the publication of internal party meetings in which senior figures of both parties were alleged to have discussed plans to sack opposition Leader Ed Miliband. However, in another poll, put to the British public by YouGov in May, the Conservatives were seen as the “strongest” party on the issue of immigration with 43pc of the population supporting it compared to 30pc who wanted them out and 29pc who did not.

Theresa May’s decision not to take part in the Tory election campaign in Scotland has also been seen as causing her political fortunes to suffe
