Boris Johnson and the Conservative Party are still leading in the polls against the Labour Party despite leader Sir Keir Starmer’s popularity and despite the intense debate over the awarding of GCSE and A level grades, the Tories were the choice of 34.57 per cent of respondents of an exclusive OnePoll survey for the Sunday Express.
The party came out in front of Sir Keir Starmer’s Labour (30.22 per cent) and way ahead of Sir Ed Davey’s Liberal Democrats 95.29 per cent).
The poll uncovered enduring support for the Brexit Party, despite the United Kingdom leaving the European Union earlier this year after 47 years as a member state and almost one in 20 of those polled would vote for the party which Nigel Farage turned into a political comedy.
The Government can expect strong support if it makes a safe and effective coronavirus vaccine mandatory for all UK nationals and visitants, the latest research shows.
Polling reveals a strong desire to get as much of the population as possible vaccinated and more than two thirds (64.09 per cent) of respondents to research by OnePoll favoured strongly or somewhat that the vaccine should be mandatory when it’s developed unless people have a medical reason not to be vaccinated.
Less than one in five people (18.18 per cent) opposed somewhat or strongly with mandatory vaccination.
The United Kingdom has now secured access to six possible vaccines as scientists around the world race to exterminate the menace to life posed by COVID 19.
Vaccine campaigns have proven wildly controversial and have been the target of conspiracy theories but Paul Bristow, a Conservative member of Westminster’s health committee, expected strong support for public vaccination.
He said that if we get a vaccine it will be a tremendous breakthrough if we can beat this virus for good. He maintained that this was a sensible nation and that he wasn’t shocked that a preponderance of people wanted to see everyone vaccinated.
He further said that he knew there was a lot of anti-vax garbage on social media so the Government must do what it can to counter this but that he was convinced that most would want to get vaccinated without any compulsion.
Health Minister Jo Churchill has revealed that while there’s a desire to get as many people as possible vaccinated, people may have to be prioritised according to the availability of supplies, safety and its effectiveness in various groups. However, there are no plans to target regions with the highest levels of COVID 19.
And there’s absolutely no point in having runners and riders for an election. Boris Johnson still has 4 years to go in his tenure and I don’t see him quitting any time soon.
Rishi Sunak is popular because he’s handing out cash like smarties but his real test will be how he deals with the fallout caused by the massive debt. He could be our biggest knave or a hero, only time will tell.
