Tories gain 16-point lead over Labour (Jonathan Milne, 3/16/08, The Sunday Times)

THE Tories have opened up a 16-point lead over Labour, their biggest in more than 20 years, a poll for this weekend’s Sunday Times has found.

YouGov put the Conservatives on 43%, compared with 27% for Labour and just 16% for Nick Clegg’s Liberal Democrats. Gordon Brown has now taken Labour to its lowest poll rating since 1983, when Michael Foot was the party’s leader.

If the results were repeated at a general election, Cameron would lead his party to a Commons majority of around 120.
