Today’s YouGov poll shows that Labour’s poll lead now stands at 14 points, with the Tories at an unprecedented poll low of 28% – despite the prevailing Westminster Village wisdom being that they would receive a poll bounce from their stance on Welfare, and the coverage surrounding the death of Margaret Thatcher.
