Possibly referring to the latest YouGov?
OK thanks, that's pretty close. That recent one showing Labour 8 points ahead was surely an outlier, the above look more representative of the general run of polls of late -- or so my incomplete recall suggests
The 8 point lead for Labour from survation isn't an outlier, it's pretty consistent with survation's other polls (lab +1, Tory -1 from their previous poll iirc).
I read an interesting article about why there's such a wide range of figures on the polls atm - in Alabama they had a spread of 20 points or something. Basically no-one knows how to weigh anymore.
(I think the Tory poll bump is real though fwiw)
Here's the piece - almost everything in it is applicable to polls here I reckon
Why polls showing a 20-point spread in Alabama aren't actually 'wrong'
Thanks for that, I need to be less lazy about poll related stuff
Nadine Doris on the Sunday Politics is the type of Tory that hopefully will disappear once brexit is done one way other another.
The revolution will not belong to the pollsters. The revolution will not be predicted.
I think May is getting a 'she's getting on with it' bounce.
The bounce before the storm

Most things bounce if they hit the ground hard enough

so lazy: Michael Gove ‘haunted’ by plastic pollution seen in Blue Planet II
I'm none the wiser on whether to bet on the Tory Death Spiral concluding before Jeremy Corbyn's Time Is Up...
Being haunted by plastic should be the least of Pob's worries. I'd like to think that he's also haunted by all the evil he's done to so many people's lives, but unlikely as that is I'll settle for polymers.
I can see him being chased by a plastic bag everywhere he goes, like Patrick McGoohan being chased down a beach by a baloon blob
In the next satisfying instalment: Iain Duncan Smith's terror of manhole covers.
