Labour Gets Conference Bounce in Britain

The opposition Conservative party is holding on to a slim lead in Britain, according to a poll by ICM Research. 36 per cent of respondents would support the Tories in the next House of Commons election.

The governing Labour party is a close second with 35 per cent, followed by the Liberal Democrats with 19 per cent. 11 per cent of respondents would vote for other parties. Support for the Tories fell by one point since mid-September, while backing for Labour increased by two points.

Okay, Labour's symbol is clearly a rose, and the Lib Dems clearly have a Dove, but what the hell precisely is the symbol that the Conservatives are using.  It looks a lot like a sailboat... will I guess everyone in Britain has a sailboat.

And I'll give my consent to any government that does not deny a man a living wage-Billy Bragg
