Perhaps Our Tone is responding to *these* poll results, as described in the Glasgow Herald Online …
“David Cameron last night received a major morale boost after a poll put the Conservatives on 40 points, nine ahead of Labour, representing their best showing for 15 years.
The monthly ICM snapshot for the Guardian saw the Tories climb three to 40, Labour unchanged on 31, while Sir Menzies Campbell’s Liberal Democrats dropped four to 19.
However, there was even better news for the Tory leader because when people were asked how they would vote if Gordon Brown were prime minister, the gap widened further. Under this scenario - expected to materialise in the summer - the Tories shot up five points to 42, Labour fell back two to 29, and the LibDems slumped six to 17.
advertisementThis represents the Tories’ best showing since the height of its power in the 1980s and puts the Tory Opposition firmly into election-winning territory for the first time, having broken through the significant 40% barrier.”
