    Labour now close the gap to six points.

    General election: Labour close gap on Tories to six points, new poll shows

    Labour put on 37 per cent, up three points on a week ago and six points behind the Tories.

    The poll by Survation for ITV's Good Morning Britain (GMB) puts Labour on 37 per cent, up three points on a week ago and six points behind the Tories who are unchanged on 43 per cent.

    The Liberal Democrats on 8 per cent and Ukip on 4 per cent are both unchanged while the SNP are down one on 2 per cent and the Greens are also down one on 1 per cent.

    It now looks as if the electorate are really looking at the manifestos of both the major parties now that this once-massive gap is now closing rapidly.

    Sadly it is now looking like the votes for the SNP in Scotland are going to be the decider as to if Labour are going to make enough headway in the UK, as before the rise of the SNP, Scotland was a dyed-in-the wool Labour country.

    Six points is good, but the switch-over is going to have to be much more solid before the Tories will be defeated.

    Six points is still a long way to go, but it is heading in the right direction.

    Yes, it looks like it.

    Mind you, Labour only needs to gain three more points while the Tories lose three points for them to be neck-and-neck.

    Let's hope so.

    The arrogance of Theresa May and the rest of the Tories, thinking that their punishing manifesto is not going to lose them votes is most irritating.

    I just hope that enough real voters do make comparisons between the two manifestos.
