Britain's Labor won a record lead over the Conservatives in a wave of economic turmoil after the government passed a mini-budget.
This is evidenced by the results of a YouGov poll, Reuters reports.
Yes, Labor is ahead of the Conservatives by 33 points, which is believed to be the largest lead for Labor in any recorded poll since 1998, when Tony Blair was prime minister.
Earlier on Thursday, British Prime Minister Liz Truss defended her controversial plan to revive economic growth after huge tax cuts announced last week sent the pound and government bond prices tumbling.
A YouGov poll of voting intentions, conducted on Wednesday and Thursday, showed 54% support for Labor and 21% support for the Conservatives. More than 1,700 British adults took part in the survey.
Another YouGov poll earlier this week found that 45% of voters support Labor compared to 28% for the Conservatives.
Truss took office on September 6 after defeating former finance minister Rishi Sunak in the Conservative leadership race. The next national elections are likely to be held in 2024.
At least two Conservative lawmakers - both of whom supported Sunac during the party's leadership race - publicly criticized the Trusts' economic plans after the poll was released.
"This is a serious crisis right now and a lot is at stake. The economic package of borrowing and tax cuts announced last week clearly fails to inspire confidence in the market or voters," Conservative MP George Freeman said on Twitter.
Another Tras MP, Julian Smith, called on the government to reverse the scrapping of the 45% top rate of income tax.
Three other polls on Thursday also showed a significant Labor lead: Survation put Labor ahead of the Conservatives by 21 points; Deltapoll showed Labor ahead by 19 points; and Redfield & Wilton Strategies - by 17 points.
Opposition Leader Keir Starmer told his party's annual conference this week that it was Labour's best chance of winning power since 2010, after four consecutive election defeats.
We will remind, at the party conference of the British Labor Party, a delegate who criticized the Ukrainian government and spoke against aid to Ukraine was booed.
