The poll we put up whilst away had a decent 33 votes.
The Question was when will we see the green shoots of recovery (a reference to a much derided term used during the recession of the early 1990's). The results were as below:
Before end of 2008
Before 2009 Election
Not until 2010
Depression until the Olympics
Whadyamean; all is well
I am pleased to see we have some left-wing, labour voting readers for balance, as this must account for the 9% who said all is well.
The winner by a long way though was no real improvement until 2010, with not a vote for a turnaround this year. Economically, this is bad for us all if it comes to pass as it will mean, higher unemployment and higher costs of living.
Politically, this would eb even worse news for Gordon and Badger; no hope surely of winning and election after what would be 2 full years of economic hardship/decline. No blaming the Tories this time.
A significant vote went for no real improvement until 2012 - with my optimist hat on I think this is pushing the bear a abit far; but time will tell.
