So is it the case that when you join a certain media organisation or all being the case it seems lately, that you have to toe the line in terms of your views and questioning of people? Seems a disater area if you are wanting to become a serious journalist only to be told to read the autocue and foolw these lines of thought......

Which Journo's have bucked the trend on these matters? Jon Snow?
I wouldn't mind seeing Miriam O Callaghan buck with the legs
she showed last night on Prime Time

Classy as usual.

This poll doesn't seem quite as one sided

They have to raise taxes. Lower taxes and smaller Government are Tory articles of faith. Most Tory voters have no idea how awful the numbers are.

I see their methodology being questioned for mixing data of two separate polls, wouldn't be like the Daily Mail to push a Rothermere agenda (anti tax rise) / try and fire a shot across May's bow in case she gets too uppity.

You can be sure someone will be required to down play the extent of the Conservative lead to prevent complacency and nobody better to do it than the Daily Mail.

I'd say the Daily Mail playing down the lead is very likely.

in fairness, the UK Institute for Fiscal Studies would have done some research and they agree with Seafoid.
