Labour shadow minister admits polls are ‘awful’ after damning report predicts election drubbing

Shadow housing minister John Healey admitted the Fabian Society’s report was a ‘serious warning’ – but he doesn’t think alliances are the answer

A Labour shadow minister admitted the party’s poll numbers are “awful” today, after research showed they had virtually no chance of winning an election.

    Cannot make up his mind
    flip flop, flip flop
