by Fintan Dunne | Sunday 4th June, 2017 | 01.00BST Data in a new Ipsos Mori poll are indicating that Labour are on course for a general election win – courtesy of a record young turnout, paired with disenchantment among traditional Conservative supporters.
Their survey, conducted last Monday and Tuesday put the Conservatives on a five point lead of 45-40 – but hedged its bets with an alternative analysis where all who expressed intention to vote were counted. In that case, Labour would have a 43 point score to the Tories on 40 points.
That alternative scenario includes the “don’t knows” and demographic groups historically unlikely to vote, including minorities, the under 35s and the poorest older people. The pollsters have good reason to second guess their official prediction.
There are three factors which will bring about a Labour victory -albeit in a minority government.
The Captain Ska Factor.
The Theresa Factor.
The Manchester Factor.
Minister for Children and Youth Affairs, Katherine Zappone has lied repeatedly --including to the Oireachtas-- about her intent to invite U.N. Special Raporteur, Pablo de Greiff to Ireland to provide international human rights oversight of the Government's response to issues around the Commission of Investigation into Mother and Baby homes.
The Big Lie began on 1st June, 2017 when Dr de Greiff's proposed visit to Ireland was first mentioned by Minister Zappone -who cited his "extensive experience and insights which I believe will help me as a Minister".
