Even though it is well over four years since it was in power LAB is still getting the blame for the cuts

July 29th, 2014

Ever since May 2010 I’ve said that the “blame for the cuts” tracker from YouGov might be a good indicator.

The figures from 2014 are in the chart above and although the party is not on its worst position, 48% back in October 2010, it is still blamed more than the coalition.

While that remains Osborne/Cameron/Clegg & co can still respond to criticism of their economic policies by blaming LAB. Polling like this suggests that their line still resonates. This is going to get louder in the coming months.
