Nationalists Surge Ahead in the Polls

From the 'Guardian' poll :

The research compares data from all ICM polls carried out during the 2005 general election with all ICM polls carried out since Mr Brown became Labour leader in late June. The larger sample sizes allow an accurate assessment of each party's core strengths and weaknesses. Labour support has held up well in northern England, the east and the Midlands. During the 2005 campaign Labour averaged 45% in the north, compared with 47% now. Support has also risen in London, where it averaged 41% in 2005 and 48% now. In the south and south-west of England, Labour support is also resilient, at 28% now compared with 27% in 2005.
But the Labour party is struggling in Scotland and Wales, in the wake of the SNP's victory in this year's elections to Holyrood, dropping from 43% in 2005 to 36% now. That suggests Mr Brown may delay an election because he fears losing seats to the SNP (and Plaid Cymru) .

An election may not be held in Ocober - has Independence Cymru got it wrong?

I shouldn't be surprised Al, but there again, I suppose that you have your reputation to maintain.

Have you been hanging about with those false prophets again?

Your propinquitic pal.

"Has Independence Cymru got it wrong?"

Does that question apply to this post or all of them? ;-D

Mister Morgannwg :
It doesn't apply to any of them, and may not apply to this one.
