Labour has raced ahead of the Tories in a spectacular new poll.
Jeremy Corbyn’s party scored a three point lead, completing the reversal of a 17-point deficit, according to a Survation study.
On the day Brexit talks were due to begin, and with the country formally without a government due to the slow progress of Tory talks with the DUP, signs emerged that voters’ patience with Theresa May is wearing thin. The prime minister’s party fell back a single point while Labour rose four points as Corbyn enjoyed credit for a strong campaign and signs of greater unity in his parliamentary party.
May has also faced criticism for her response to the tragic fire at Grenfell Tower in west London while Corbyn was praised for his compassionate response.
Labour was on 30 per cent and the Tories 47 when Survation published the first poll in the series on May 9.
