Do We Deserve This Union?

Brown Or Blair: Who's The Worst PM?
By Sky News SkyNews - 33 minutes ago

Gordon Brown is regarded as a worse prime minister than Tony Blair by nearly a third of voters, a new poll suggests.
The Populus survey for The Times also shows the Conservatives' lead over Labour growing by three percentage points in the last month.
It found support for the Tories has risen two points to 39%, while that for Labour has fallen one to 33%.
The Liberal Democrats are down two on 17%.
Populus also found that 31% of the public feels the Prime Minister is worse than his predecessor, Mr Blair.
The findings are more bad news for Gordon Brown after recent polls showed that voters overwhelmingly rejected last month's Budget.

Meanwhile another poll has suggested turnout at the next general election could be at its highest since the 1997 landslide which brought Labour to power.
Research by YouGov found 65% of electors planning to cast a vote - up four points on 2005 and more than five on 2001 but still well behind 1997's 71.3%.
The poll was commissioned by computer giant Microsoft to mark the launch of a new Despatch Box political tool, designed to inform debate, on its MSN website.
:: Populus interviewed 1,502 adults between April 4 and 6, weighting the results to the profile of all voters.
:: YouGov surveyed 5,031 adults (1,000-plus in London) online between March 20-25.

In the view of Independence Cymru there is no doubt that Gordon Brown is a worse Prime Minister than Tony Blair, and that the New Labour Administration has been a disaster for Wales, apart from the advent of devolution and establishment of a degree of Welsh national government (the Assembly).
