“Conservatives on Course For a Landslide Victory in Election..” proclaims the Guardian (apparently now big fans of the Liberal Democrats), citing a poll that indicates “The Tories have more than doubled their lead over Labour to 19 points since Theresa May called a snap general election last Tuesday.”
And in “The Mail on Sunday” we have “Tory lead is slashed in half after tax U-turn: Bombshell Mail on Sunday poll shows May plummeting by 11 points…denting hopes of a landslide”
The Mail poll was taken on Friday and Saturday. The Guardian poll was conducted on Wednesday and Thursday.
Seems to me that some politicians need a good kick up the pants and that some publications need to stop running with hares and hunting with hounds.
