The UK’s main opposition Labour Party have seen their first poll lead over the ruling Conservatives for the first time since Boris Johnson became prime minister.

Axar.az reports that the poll, carried out for The Observer newspaper, gave Labour 42% support compared to the Conservatives’ 39% – a three-point lead.

As early as six months ago, as the COVID-19 pandemic surged, the Conservatives had a 26-point lead.

The last time Labour were ahead in the polls was July 2019, when the Conservatives were led by then-Prime Minister Theresa May. They were two points ahead then.

Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer is polling especially well, leading Johnson by 4 points.

Over half, 55%, of voters think he is ready to be prime minister, and 40% believe the Labour party can form the next government.
