Comment - Miscellaneous
Now our rankings on Education, Health, Environment and Democracy are unsurprising, the Party cares deeply about these areas and has worked hard on them. Still, our lead on Education policy is spectacular - the highest lead in any category - and I'm surprised that Environment is not our strongest area.
On the other hand the popularity of our Crime policy does surprise me. It shows that there is more support for policies that are not set by the Police lobbies and fear of tabloid headlines. I think we should make more of our crime policies which are humane, evidence-based and which would provide many benefits to our communities.
Our strong showing on Economy is encouraging and the relative weakness of immigration policy unsurprising.
The other stand-out policy area is Europe.
Bottom line: We have policies that are popular as well as wise. We just need to show people that we can win and, having won, can govern.
