Labour Party news: Danger for Keir Starmer as Labour slips AGAIN | UK | News
The poll found the Conservative Party had gained two approval points and that Labour had slipped by three points. The poll, conducted by Survation, between July 5-13, showed an improvement in opinion ratings for the Conservative Party from the last poll, conducted on 26 June. The voting intention poll showed the Conservative Party on 43 percent (+2), the Labour Party on 32 percent (-3), the Liberal Democrats on 9 percent (-1) and the Green Party on 6 percent (+1).
Some social media users were dismayed that Labour had fallen further behind in the latest poll.
One Twitter follower said: “Genuinely don’t think it’s been a great month for the Tories, and still this.
“Maybe Labour needs to keep going with Starmer for a bit longer to feel the full disaster.
“Shame for the country though.”

Another tweeted: “I understand Labour losses, but why do people sway to the Tories after all they’ve done?!”
One user even said: “Can Labour just stop wasting the next three years and get to the inevitable point of making Burnham leader now?”
It comes as the Conservative Party has been dragged into a racism row following England’s Euro 2020 final loss to Italy at Wembley Stadium on Sunday.
After the defeat, racist abuse was levelled at Marcus Rashford, Jadon Sancho and Bukayo Saka.
Prince William, who serves as President of England’s Football Association, wrote on Twitter that he was “sickened by the racist abuse”.
“It must stop now and all those involved should be held accountable,” he said.
England footballer Tyrone Mings accused Home Secretary Priti Patel of having managed to “stoke the fire” in the tournament by criticising the team for taking the knee against racism as “gesture politics”.
No 10 said Mr Johnson opened a meeting of his Cabinet on Tuesday by condemning the racist attacks players were targeted with after Sunday’s match.
“He said the abuse was utterly disgraceful and had emerged from the dark spaces of the internet,” the Prime Minister’s official spokesman said.
The poll involved 2,119 respondents.
