Great news. :toot:

One would have hoped this was coming anyway as it was one of the big "wins" at the Labour conference this year, but it's good to see it getting properly backed.

It's because people are either strawberry floating selfish or because they are strawberry floating idiots. Or both.

BBC News wrote:Liberal Democrat candidate Chuka Umunna said it was "wrong [and] undemocratic" not to include his party in the [BBC] head-to-head to represent those who "want to stop Brexit".

Meanwhile, Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage has challenged Mr Johnson to a debate over his Brexit deal, telling an audience in South Wales: "If you are really trying to tell the British public this gets Brexit done, let's have a civilised head-to-head debate on what this EU treaty means."

Swinson and the Lib Dems are already suing ITV, may as well add the BBC and Sky to the list.

I understand why people like Swinson would be pissed off, but Farage isn't even standing in this election. strawberry float off Nigel.

Although having said that, a Brexit debate between Johnson and Farage would be amazing - they'd rip each other to shreds and really help to split the Leave vote.

YouGov wrote:New YouGov data, collected at the start of the election campaign, shows that there has been a positive shift in the public’s perception of Boris Johnson but that Jeremy Corbyn is still failing to win over the general public.

Image

At the end of September more people saw Johnson as dislikeable than likeable (46% to 39%), but that has now passed a tipping point. Some 46% now see him as likeable, compared to 41% who say the opposite.

At the same time there’s been a marginal improvement in the Prime Minister’s perceived competency; 41% of Brits believe Johnson is competent, compared to 36% at the end of September.

But it’s not all good news for him. There has also been a drop in his decisiveness rating (from 61% to 55%). While he’s still seen as more decisive than indecisive, the gap between the two has narrowed. Interestingly, this characteristic saw the greatest boost after his first month in office. Between the end of July and end of August, Johnson’s decisiveness rating increased by more than twenty percentage points (from 38% to 62%). This now stands at 55%.

Elsewhere, there’s been little change. He is still seen as someone more untrustworthy than trustworthy (53% to 25%), more out of touch than in touch (55% to 27%) and more dishonest than honest (50% to 23%). His perceived strength, which saw a boost one month after taking office, continues to hold strong at 49%. This compares to 34% who currently consider the PM weak.

It’s bad news for Corbyn (again)

Image

More people see Jeremy Corbyn as authentic than believe he’s putting on an act (40% to 37%) but the results are so close that they fall within the margin of error.

He is performing poorly across all other measures, with negative ratings exceeding positive. He is viewed particularly poorly on decisiveness, strength and competency: 69% of Britons believe him indecisive, 64% think him weak and 63% see him as incompetent.

There’s been little change since we last asked the public to rate the leader of the Labour Party at the beginning of September. While much has happened politically, public perceptions of Corbyn remain fairly consistent.

There’s been a marginal change in the proportion of people who think of him as in touch with ordinary people (from 27% to 31%). But this slight improvement still falls some way short of the 49% who consider him out of touch.

Putting the party leaders directly up against each other, Corbyn comes out on top in just three of eight areas. The public see Corbyn as more honest (Corbyn’s 31% to Johnson’s 23%), more authentic (40% to 31%) and more in touch with ordinary people (31% to 27%).

As for other qualities and characteristics, the public predominately view Johnson more favourably, and particularly so in terms of his decisiveness (Johnson’s 55% to Corbyn’s 16%) and strength (49% to 17%).

The pair however find themselves fairly evenly matched in their perceived trustworthiness. Johnson and Corbyn enjoy trustworthiness ratings of 25% and 24%, respectively.

I know it's anecdotal but a lot of people I know seem to have flipped Labour supporting. A lot of people seemed to be leaning Green.

It was a similar story at the start of the campaign last time. These start of campaign polls don't matter, the campaign over the next month is what matters.

Yeh there's been no manifestos yet :lol:

EDIT: I guess it does show that people are less likely to vote the main two parties now and LDs, TBP, Greens are picking up votes

That regional polling data is from 3 weeks ago, before the election was even called and Boris hadn't yet failed to deliver Brexit.

Polls have always been shaky things but recently they seem even less reliable so heaps of salt are required when consulting any of them really.

I can certainly see where the stats for thinking Corbyn is indecisive come from. It's an unfortunate effect of years of fence sitting and was inevitably going to lead to that kind of perception. He's going to need to do a LOT to get rid of that image in a short amount of time.
