Labour polling 50% in London

Latest shock figures from YouGov show a Labour surge in London, with the party now hitting 50% in the capital, up from 41% a month ago.

Jeremy Corbyn’s personal rating in London has also improved, with 37% backing him for Prime Minister compared to 34% for Theresa May.

For Labour to have any chance of actually winning the election they would have to win in London convincingly. Previously that looked unlikely but these numbers are much more solid.

No need for hysteria, but it certainly appears the race is tightening.
