Labor activists are stepping up door-to-door canvassing in a bid to win the Wellingborough by-election.
According to James Blitz, independent journalist and former head of the political pages at the
Financial Times newspaper, the precarious situation in which we find ourselves many households could push voters to support the Labor opposition.
Poverty for families, particularly in the north of England, has become something unbearable.
A quote from James Blitz, independent journalist
If he does not see overwhelming enthusiasm for Labor, who do not say much about what they are going to do, the journalist nevertheless believes that many voters say to themselves that there is no problem in changing government , because the Labor Party cannot do worse than the Conservatives.
The polls, which have systematically placed Labor in the lead for several months, seem to be moving in this direction. The latest survey carried out by the Yougov firm gave 44% of voting intentions to the Labor Party, far ahead of the Conservative Party with 23% of support.
If she intends to go to the polls and hopes for a change of government in London, Ren Haynes has no illusions about her situation and that of the other people who frequent the heated space of Wellingborough church.
Even if Labor forms the government, I don't think there will be improvements, she says, while the risk of A recession, narrowly avoided at the end of last year, still looms over the British economy.
