    Well, if my remarks about Corbyn's incompetence help get rid of them, I'll be very happy.

    Come to what? that political debate has been reduced to quoting opinion polls three years prior to a general election as if that's all that matters?
    You've repeated that line a few times, by the way.

    Labour should constantly get NHS approval ratings north of 60%. They're now behind the Tories. That's what it's come to.

    If the Hibs manager was performing as poorly as Corbyn, you wouldn't be stubbornly supporting him in the hope that something unknown, and unlikely, might happen to reverse his fortunes.

    You can't answer, can you?
    There's only one thing better than a Hibs calendar and that's two Hibs calendars

    Yes, that's right. You've won the argument. Corbyn is a cock.

    The Hibs manager as Labour party leader analogy only works if you ignore the fact that in UK politics what happens on the night of the general election is in fact, all that matters. Hibs season, surprisingly enough, is a different thing. One would think that after Brexit, Trump, and Corbyns 100/1 leadership victory
    people would be a tiny bit sceptical of extrapolating future events based on political polling.

    But Im repeating myself. I trust everyone can make up their own minds.

    Ok. We're 3 years away fron the GE, unless May finds a way to call one in the next couple of months.

    When should we start worrying?

    Or are the polls so unreliable that a 8 - 14 points deficit might be recoverable "on the night"?

    A five point deficit is probably recoverable on the night. Anything above that would be highly unlikely. But it's happened before.

    And assuming you actually want Labour under Corbyn to win an election, you'd probably worry if there was no improvement in voting intention polling with 9 months to go. Although of course seismic events like scandal, war, recession, financial shock can change public opinion quite quickly.
