The EU said the Conservative Party is collapsing and a new poll backs this up

Conservative Party could soon collapse

Both the EU and Morgan Stanley have predicted that the Conservative Party will soon collapse. And a new poll published by Survation lends credit to this claim. As Labour is now 8 points ahead of the Conservatives in terms of political support.

The next general election could be soon

Morgan Stanley has said of the Conservatives that:

With a minority government torn over Europe and facing a divisive choice between ‘taking back control’ and maintaining close links, we see another early election as likely.

Economists at the bank argue, based on their research, that the next general election will be in 2018. And if Labour’s lead over the Conservatives maintains, this could change everything. As Survation points out:

We’ve not seen such a lead for Labour in a Survation poll since late 2013. An 8 point lead would put the Labour party into overall majority territory if such vote share totals were reflected at the ballot box.

Different findings

But not all polls reveal the same findings as Survation. For example, a Kantar survey shows 42% of respondents would vote Tory, with 38% voting Labour; Opinium says Labour are two points ahead, and the last YouGov poll puts Labour three points ahead.

Survation claims its methodology is reliable, since its:

final online and telephone polling for GE 2017 had the “correct answer” – a small Conservative lead over Labour and a hung parliament…

A collapsing party 

The EU said the Conservative Party is collapsing because it is losing key Cabinet ministers and is in disarray over Brexit negotiations. Meanwhile, the Democratic Unionist Party, which is propping up May’s minority government, is threatening to withdraw its support over issues with the border between Northern Ireland and Ireland.

Chaos and tension within the Conservative Party could make the EU’s predictions come true. And if we can trust Survation’s latest political poll, then collapsing support for the party could spell bad news for the party in the next general election.

We know everyone is suffering under the Tories - but the Canary is a vital weapon in our fight back, and we need your support

The Canary Workers’ Co-op knows life is hard. The Tories are waging a class war against us we’re all having to fight. But like trade unions and community organising, truly independent working-class media is a vital weapon in our armoury.

The Canary doesn’t have the budget of the corporate media. In fact, our income is over 1,000 times less than the Guardian’s. What we do have is a radical agenda that disrupts power and amplifies marginalised communities. But we can only do this with our readers’ support.

So please, help us continue to spread messages of resistance and hope. Even the smallest donation would mean the world to us.
