Has the Conservatives gamble paid off?

While many people are still contemplating the fact that the Conservatives announced the most severe cost-cutting exercise in over 30 years, initial opinion polls have put the party 14 percentage points ahead of Labour. This is an increase of one percentage point since the infamous George Osborne statement regarding the UK finances and future investment in the UK public sector. So has the gamble paid off?

It would appear from the initial feedback from voters that the honesty shown by the Conservative party has firmed up support across the UK. Consequently it looks as though voters are now more sceptical than ever regarding the Labour Party's plans for the public sector. The fact that a number of strikes are planned for the Christmas period may also have weighed heavily on the minds of voters, something which has effectively shot the Labour Party in the foot.

It will be interesting to see how the polls change in the run-up to the general election and how the Conservative party and Labour Party tackle issues such as Europe, national finances, taxes and public sector investment. Whatever happens, UK voters will have more than enough information to consider over the next few months.
