According to the results of a recent Sunday Times poll, Labour's popularity is at an all-time low, following Alistair Darling's first budget. It is thought that the public have lost confidence in both Gordon Brown and Alistair Darling's ability to lead Britain through tough economic times. Many Brits believe that the government has squandered billions of pound of taxpayers' money and are unhappy at being hit with rising bills and high taxes just as the economy is hitting a downward spiral. They are no longer prepared to accept Labour's explanation that the only way to lower taxes is by cuts to essential public services.
The general consensus of opinion is that Britain is heading into recession. With many people worried about losing their jobs, falling house prices and rising food, petrol, gas and electricity prices, it looks like we're all in for a rough ride over the next few months.
