Well, it looks as though I will have plenty to talk about on the Sky News Paper Revbiew at 10.30 and 11.20pm tonight. The first poll on Gordon Brown since the Northern Rock crisis has just been released by the Telegraph. It shows Brown would get an increased majority if he calls an election.
The YouGov poll findings, published today on Telegraph.co.uk and Telegraph TV, puts Labour on 39 points, the Conservatives on 33 and the Liberal Democrats on 16. It means Labour has dropped just one point and the Tories and the Liberal Democrats stay on the same level as last month.
The Telegraph poll asked who would make the best Prime Minister. Forty two per cent said Mr Brown and only 20 per cent David Cameron. Liberal Democrat leader Sir Menzies Campbell impressed only six per cent.
When asked who would run the economy better Labour polls 36 per cent to the Tories’ 28.
I understand that CCHQ is on full election alert, with preparations for an announcement by Gordon Brown on Monday. Yes, you read that right. Monday.
