Take Care

Stuart Sharpe warned us a while back about just how useful and reliable poll results are.

There seems to be a lot of excitement over the numbers at the moment. This is, of course, not surprising; it is unusual (to say the least) for a poll to suggest that in a snap election, not only would the ruling party lose, it would also (based on vote share) not even be the official Opposition.

Gratifying as the current results are, there is but one nagging doubt at the back of my mind; it says "Do not forget 1992".
