With the Conservatives riding so high in the polls for such a prolonged period much of the country, including our Labour counterparts, have come to the conclusion that we are heading for a historic and long over-due win at the next General Election. However as I always say, polls are fickle friends. I believe they assist us in the sense that it gives ‘bandwagon voters’ an indication as to which party is currently the most ‘popular’ which could well swing their decision.
However whilst there is the possibility that some of those polled will not actually vote Conservative when push comes to shove, I do still believe that we are headed for Downing Street and a healthy majority at the next election. To err on the side of caution I would predict a majority similar to that of Mrs Thatcher in 1979, somewhere between 45-60. For the time being however I was tickled by political betting’s seat calculation on the basis of the current polls. We can dream can’t we? although at the minute anything seems possible.
