Politico London Playbook

STICKY WICKET: Labour is 15 points ahead of the Tories for the third month in a row, according to the latest monthly More in Common poll shown to Playbook. It’s 43 percent to 28 percent. Director Luke Tryl says: “For the first time this parliament, public opinion seems to have become profoundly ‘sticky’ … it’s clearly going to take some major developments at next month’s party conferences to shift these numbers.” But silver lining … Of the 6 percent of Reform U.K. backers, a quarter would vote Tory and only 3 percent Labour if there is no Reform candidate.
