The survey also gave the Conservatives a lead on almost every major political issue.
Thirty seven per cent favoured David Cameron’s healthcare policies, three points ahead of Labour.
The Populus poll showed 56 per cent thought Mr Cameron was substantial compared with 38 per cent for Mr Brown. Most said the Prime Minister was dithering and dull while almost three-quarters thought Mr Cameron was likeable or charismatic.
The Tories were also in the lead on managing the economy, improving standards in schools, getting the balance right between taxes and spending, dealing with crime and anti-social behaviour, tackling immigration and asylum, and reforming the political system.
It now seems certain that whatever he does, whatever happens, the British public have simply stopped listening to McDoom, his minions and his master, Lord Fondlebum of Boys. The Labour conference could very well be a complete disaster and the inside information going around at the moment is that so many of the Labour rabble are staying at home, because they are resigned to losing the election and are totally demoralised, that the venue is going to look extremely empty on television, and the thought of that is scaring them rigid. So much so, in fact, that they have been trying to bribe the locals in Brighton with free tickets to attend the conference so they can make the hall look full for the TV cameras! What a fucking laugh!!
It also appears that the local people have not exactly been stampeding to get the tickets either so what would be really funny is if the tickets ended up going to people who are not Labour supporters at all and who cause them yet more embarrassment at the conference with heckling, anti-Labour banners and all the other wonderful stuff that goes along with a good protest demo - now that really would be fucking hilarious!
Well that conference will be happening very soon and I'm going to stop letting my imagination run away with me - whatever happens, it will be a dismal affair resembling something more like a funeral or a wake, and this is Browneye's last chance to impress the party. If his performance at the TUC conference a few days ago is anything to go by, this next one will be a real stinker - I think I can already smell it coming our way - he's doomed, I tell you, doomed!
Could he get the chop in the next few weeks? It's not beyond the realms of possibility if Mandelson says it's time for him to go and then the pressure for a snap election would surely be too great to resist for a second time. We can't have two unelected PMs in a row can we - that would just be undemocratic!!
