Labour soaring away

It hasn't received much publicity that I have seen but there was a MORI opinion poll taken a week before Christmas which put Labour on 40%, 4% up from the previous month and 9% ahead of Michael Howard's Tories. Much of the interviews were done after Saddam Hussein's capture.

What's really remarkable is this is of those certain to vote. If you look at the replies of all respondents expressing an interest in voting the figures are 43% Labour, 28% Conservative. Despite what you may read on many blogs this is not a Conservative country.
