A poll highlighted in the front page of today's Daily Telegraph shows the Conservatives plumbing record depths of unpopularity. According to the Gallup Poll, no prime minister and government have fallen so far and so fast in public esteem since it began canvassing opinion in Britain in the late 1930s.

Labour enters the campaign for the May and June local and European elections enjoying its best poll ratings for more than a decade with a 25-point lead over the Tories with 51.5%. The Tories are on 26.5% and the Liberal Democrats on 17.5%.

The paper says that when the furore over the poll tax was at its height in early 1990, Labour achieved such opinion poll leads for only a few weeks. But it has now been ahead by more than 20 points for four of the last six months.
