The general election now the UK’s number one story

April 10th, 2015

I do like this weekly Tweet from Populus which can put a lot of things into context. Too often those deeply immersed in politics tend to overstate importance of what seem to them to be major developments to the outside world. This brings it down to earth.

At the moment the reference to the election is non-specific – but will we start to see specific issues on the Populus table?

The problem with non-doms is that virtually nobody understands what is being talked about apart from the idea that a group of people are, it is alleged, not paying enough tax.

Good to see the debates in the list.

Next week we have the manifestos and soon the postal voting packs will arrive on electors’ doormats.
