Poll Low Reached.

The new poll figures are remarkable, for the Euro elections in particular:

Conservative: 30%
UKIP- 17%
Labour- 17%
Lib Dem- 15%

If Labour got as low as 17% it would be hard to see how Labour MPs could avoid having to get rid of Brown, but they would then have less than a year for a new leader to come in.

Of course it is somewhat ironic that UKIP look to be the likely beneficiaries of the hit the big parties have suffered over the expenses claims. I suppose from the point of view of the major parties it is better that UKIP pick up the Euro votes because they have almost no support in local and national elections so their success can't be turned into a Westminster breakthrough, unlike the BNP & the Greens.
