Polls

I notice that the last group of opinion polls have been giving the Conservatives about a ten point lead over Labour. Just as I do not get depressed when the Conservatives are behind in the polls I do not get excited about the Conservatives being in the lead. Public opinion can change and change very quickly it is only a few weeks ago that Labour were ten points ahead. What matters is the general trend and even more importantly what happens when it comes to real votes in real elections.
I managed to get down to watch Bury on Saturday in their FA Cup encounter with Exeter. It was a tough game and Exeter battled hard but Bury scored in the last few minutes and I left hoping Bury would be drawn against one of the Premiership’s big clubs and I have to admit slightly disappointed with Bury being being drawn away at Norwich in the third round. Still after the disaster of being thrown out ( very unfairly in my view ) of the Competition last year things look much rosier as Christmas and the New Year period approaches.
